WWE: DON JOSE MIGUEL PEREZ PADRE ¿CUANDO SE LE HARÁ JUSTICIA?

Para todos los que conocemos de lo que es la lucha libre, sabemos cuán importante es, ha sido y será la aportación de grandes hombres en la industria como lo fue don José Miguel Pérez, Padre. Una persona que cuando no se conocía de lucha libre en Puerto Rico ya estaba dando a conocer el nombre de la 100 x 35 en diferentes partes de los Estados Unidos y del mundo. 
La eterna combinación junto a Antonino Rocca sin duda alguna escribieron una icónica página en la historia de la lucha libre mundial. Junto a don José Miguel, Pedro Morales, don Pedro “Huracán” Castillo y Carlos Colon abrieron la brecha para que en Puerto Rico se le conozca como la universidad de la lucha libre en el mundo. 
Tanto don Pedro Morales como Carlos Colon ya han sido exaltados en el Salón de la Fama de la WWE. El primero en el 1995 y el segundo en el 2014, pero la pregunta que nos hacemos los que conocemos un poco de este deporte espectáculo y don José Miguel ¿Para cuándo?
¿Ósea Antonino Rocca tenía los méritos para entrar al recinto de los inmortales de la WWF hoy conocida como WWE pero José Miguel Pérez, Padre, no los tenía? Con una carrera que comenzó el 15 de octubre de 1954 en Montreal Canada con solo 17 años y se extendió hasta 1993 cuando tuvo su ultimo feudo contra el Profe. 
Fue y es junto a Rocca los primeros campeones en pareja del circuito de la NWA en el territorio de Nueva York, luego conocido por el campeonato mundial en pareja de la WWWF, WWF y como se le conoce hoy día WWE.
Esta pareja obtenga el record como estelaristas de 20 llenos totales en 31 ocasiones que estuvieron en la arena principal de la lucha libre en el mundo, el Madison Square Garden, bajo el mandato de Vince Macmahon Sr. Es el primer puertorriqueño en debutar en el Madison Square Garden de New York, abriéndoles paso a otros hispanos como Pedro Morales, Mil Mascaras, Eddie Guerrero, Carlito Caribean Cold, Rey Misterio, Savio Vega entre otros.
La carrera de don José Miguel Pérez, Padre se extendió a países tan lejano como Japón, Venezuela, República Dominicana, México, India, Cuba, Alemania, Brasil, Francia. En Puerto Rico fue uno de los fundadores junto al croata Víctor y Carlos Colon de la Capitol Sport Promotion, hoy conocida como la WWC o World Wrestling Council. Fue en dicha empresa donde gano el campeonato de Puerto Rico, teniendo su primer gran feudo contra “el Rayo de Bayamón” hoy conocido como “El general Barrabas”. Fue manejador de grandes luchadores, pero el más recordado por todos en Puerto Rico es quien sin duda se gano el corazón de grandes y chicos Migthy Igor.
En el 1989 se le dedico la segunda copa Gillette, celebrada en el estadio Hiram Bithon, en marzo del año 2000 la comisión de Lucha Libre de Puerto Rico lo reconoció como el galardón “Premiación del Milenio” y en noviembre de ese mismo año fue exaltado al salón de la fama del deporte en Santurce, Puerto Rico. Lamentablemente murió el 16 de julio del 2005 sin haber sido exaltado al Salón de los Inmortales de la WWE.
Si estas no son cualidades, datos y hazañas las cuales confirman que don José Miguel Pérez, Padre merece estar en el salón de la fama de la WWE, entonces que más necesitan los que escoge quien esta y quien no está. Porque decir que un Pete Rose, Donald Trump, Mike Tyson, Mr T, van por encima del legado la trayectoria de don José Miguel es faltarle el respeto crasamente.
Creo que los que seguimos de cerca este deporte espectáculo deseamos nuevamente escuchar que un puertorriqueño sea exaltado y en esta ocasión escuchar el nombre de don José Miguel Pérez, Padre, “El Eterno Ídolo de Borinquén”

Aguadilla, Puerto Rico –  Temprano en la tarde de hoy se ha notificado el fallecimiento de quien en vida fuera, don Pedro Morales, quien es el primer y único campeón mundial de la WWE, antes conocida como WWWF o WWF nacido en Puerto Rico.

En Puerto Rico ganó el título de América del Norte WWC de Buddy Landel en junio de 1983 luego de perder a Sweet Daddy Siki en enero de 1984. Morales recuperó el título en marzo del 84, antes de perder a Randy Savage en septiembre del mismo año.
