Tarzan Boy (Toscano)

Tarzan Boy (or Toscano) was born Oziel Toscano Jasso on December 20th, 1973 in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico.
He is a Mexican professional wrestler who has worked for Mexican wrestling promotions like Promo Azteca, IWRG and Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL).

Besides Tarzan Boy, he has wrestled under the names Baby Toscano, Zorro, Armando Fernandez, Toscano and Tarzan Toscano.

Tarzan Boy was trained as a "técnico" (face) by Blue Fish and he made his lucha libre debut on November 27th, 1993 in Monterrey under the name Baby Toscano.
He was turned rudo (heel) and joined luchadores Rey Bucanero and Último Guerrero to form the stable Los Guerreros del Infierno.
Los Guerreros del Infierno feuded with another stable Los Nuevos Infernales (Satánico, Averno, and Mephisto), which Bucanero and Ultimo had recently abandoned.

Tarzan feuded with Satánico, while Bucanero and Último feuded with Averno and Mephisto.
The rudo turn proved to be a great move for Tarzan Boy, because he was finally accepted as a headliner and the fans took to his heel turn (since they had already been booing him as a face).
Tarzan later went on to join other stables like La Furia del Norte with Héctor Garza, Perro Aguayo, Jr., and El Terrible; Los Perros del Mal with Perro Aguayo, Jr., Héctor Garza and Legion Extranjera with Pierroth and Vampiro Canadiense.

During his career, Tarzan has been wildly successful in Luchas de Apuestas wrestling matches, winning fourteen matches in a row before finally losing to Shocker in 2003 at the Arena México.
Among the luchadors that have lost their hair (or masks) to him are Satanico (twice), Angel O Demonio, Pirata Morgan and Negro Casas.
Besides the Mexican wrestling promotions, Tarzan also worked for the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) as Armando Fernandez in 1998 and 1999 on their Lucha libre focused WWF Super Astros television program.

Tarzan Boy has held the World Wrestling Organization (WWO) World Tag Team Titles (with Zorro), the NWA World Light Heavyweight Title, the CMLL World Trios Titles (once with Héctor Garza and El Terrible and once with Ultimo Guerrero and Atlantis), and he was the Second Annual Leyenda de Azul Champion.
