[1] Trueno was one of over third competitors in International Wrestling Revolution Group's (IWRG) 2007 Rey del Ring ("King of the Ring") tournament, but did not win it. He participated in the 2007 version of CMLL's Reyes del Aire from Arena Coliseo. The tournament was a twelve-man torneo cibernetico , multi-man elimination match won by Virus.

The team lost to Loco Max and Virus in the opening round. The tournament was won by Diamante and Trueno's younger brother Delta who at this point was already ranked higher on the card than Trueno. [6] On April 24, 2011 Trueno was one of 16 wrestlers competing for the vacant CMLL World Super Lightweight Championship. Trueno, alongside Hijo del Signo, Hombre Bala Jr., Inquisidor, Magnus, Palacio Negro and Rey Cometa were eliminated in the preliminary round when Guerrero Maya, Jr. earned his spot in the finals. [7] Trueno had an accidental fall during a match in 2011 and suffered a severe head injury, an injury that kept him from competing on a regular basis since then.
