Andrés Alejandro Palomeque González (born July 1, 1971) is a Mexican professional wrestler, best known in Lucha Libre as Abismo Negro ("black abyss" or "black hole" in Spanish). He currently works for Asistencia Asesoría y Administración in Mexico.

Abismo Negro is a widely-recognized wrestler. He is credited with creating the "Martinente Extreme", a Tombstone piledriver with a double flip, which is an illegal move in Lucha Libre. His in-ring antics include using aerosol cans as makeshift flamethrowers. He joined the storyline splinter group Lucha Libre Latina, or simply LLL, a group similar to the nWo stable in WCW. The group feuded with real-life AAA promoter Antonio Peña and AAA loyalists such as La Parka (PAP), Octagón, Latin Lover and others, on his way to becoming one of the most consistent main event performers for AAA.

In 2004, he, along with Héctor Garza, Juventud Guerrera, Mr. Águila and later Heavy Metal, came to Total Nonstop Action Wrestling as part of Team Mexico. The team was successful but relations between AAA and TNA were strained and Abismo returned to AAA when the deal fell through. AAA hinted at a possible face turn when Abismo, along with Psicosis and Mini Psicosis, attacked LLL leader Cibernético. The two faced off in a cage match, won by Cibernético, but Abismo eventually made up with him. Despite rumors that he was jumping to CMLL, Abismo remained in AAA and was sent to a tour with Pro Wrestling NOAH in the spring of 2005. Later in the year, he turned face and began feuding with Cibernético.
