* AbortedArc: In 1999, Psychosis had been having trouble with Raven's Flock, and he had a match against former arch enemy Ultimo Dragon. So when the match ended up at ringside in front of the Flock, they attacked Psychosis. Ultimo Dragon came to his aid, and Psych and Dragon ended up standing back to back running the Flock off. So naturally, the whole thing ground was never mentioned again after that.

* AbortedArc: In 1999, Psychosis had been having trouble with Raven's Flock, Flock after building up a small win streak at their expense, and he had a match against former arch enemy Ultimo Dragon. So when the match ended up at ringside in front of the Flock, they attacked Psychosis. Ultimo Dragon came to his aid, and Psych and Dragon ended up standing back to back running the Flock off. So An underrated wrestler teaming with his former arch enemy against the hated Flock could have been an intriguing midcard angle - so naturally, the whole thing ground was never mentioned again after that.



%%* FragileSpeedster: Against heavyweights. Against wrestlers his own size he was nearly a LightningBruiser - had a great powerbomb and a lariat.

He arrived in WCW in 1996 as Psychosis, debuting in a loss to Wrestling/{{Konnan}} at ''WCW Clash of the Champions XXXII'' on January 23. He continued his feud with Rey, making his WCW [=PPV=] debut in a loss to him at ''WCW Bash at the Beach'', and also feuded with Wrestling/UltimoDragon - unfortunately for Psychosis he never beat Misterio on PPV and never ''once'' beat Dragon during the feud [[note]]he'd defeat Dragon via DQ two years after the feud ended when Raven's Flock attacked him during a match[[/note]]. He had two reigns as [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwe-c.html WCW World Cruiserweight Champion]]. For the second one, he was simply announced as Champion [[RealLifeWritesThePlot due to [=GLAAD=]'s protests over Lenny Lane, the previous Champ, and Lodi's "West Hollywood Blondes" gimmick]]. Psicosis promptly lost the belt a week later to [[Wrestling/GlennGilbertti Disco Inferno]].

* [[DisneyOwnsThisTrope AAA Owns This Name]]: Much like Wrestling/LaParka, he was forced to change his name, in his case to Nicho el Millionario, because, in his absence, [=AAA=] had created a second [=Psicosis=].



* TheChewToy: Mr. Torres got ''way'' more than his share of bad breaks. Cancelled push after cancelled push, being forced to lose a title he never won ''twice''. The second one was the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/japan/newjapan/iwgp-j.html New Japan IWGP Junior Heavyweight Title]], which Juventud had won from Wrestling/JushinThunderLiger. Juvi had been {{Kayfabe}} injured and Psicosis was named to defend the title against Liger in the rematch. The real story was that Juvi and Jerry Flynn had been arrested for drunk driving. Liger defeated Psicosis, of course. To top it off, NJPW now acknowledge Juvi - but not Psicosis - as having held the title. He also lost what would have been his most significant win over Rey Misterio - a mask vs mask match in CMLL where Psicosis was planned to win was cancelled when Misterio unmasked in WCW and CMLL forbade Misterio from wrestling masked.
