He is best known for his decade-long stint in Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL). Dorada’s real name has not been officially documented, a tradition in Mexican lucha libre where masked wrestlers’ real names often are not a matter of public record. The wrestler currently known as Gran Metalik made his debut in 2005 and has worked under other names, but achieved most success as Máscara Dorada, Spanish for “Golden Mask”. In WWE he is part of a luchador trio consisting of himself, Lince Dorado, and Kalisto known as the “Lucha House Party”.

At one time, Dorada was a quadruple CMLL champion, holding the Mexican National Trios Championship, the CMLL World Trios Championship, the CMLL World Super Lightweight Championship and the CMLL World Welterweight Championship at the same time. He has held the CMLL World Welterweight Championship four times in total. After a decade of working for CMLL in his native Mexico, Dorada worked full-time for the Japanese promotion New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) from January 2015 until returning to CMLL a year later in February 2016.

He made his in-ring debut in 2005, originally using the masked persona Plata II. He later used the ring name Metalik, holding the local Occidente Welterweight Championship, but abandoned the championship when he adopted the Máscara Dorada character. The “Máscara Dorada” ring character was the first instance of a regular luchador being given a character based on a Mini-Estrella as he was introduced after CMLL introduced Mascarita Dorada in 2007.
