By his own account, from the late 1960’s to 1975, he went on and off the wagon, sometimes on drinking binges that would last two solid weeks. One of the things that came out of this movie was a wrestling move unlike any that had been seen before it. In fact, lucha historians speculate today (in large part because of Daniel’s public admissions and interviews around the edges of this story) that Daniel really started drinking during the Latin America tours. [1][3][4][6][7] From 1962 to 1973 García appeared in five "Huracán Ramírez" movies. He was given the name in the mid-1950s, when the wrestler Eduardo Bonada who originally played Huracan in the 1952 film Huracán Ramírez decided to give up the role in the ring because he no longer wanted to obscure his face with the mask. En ese momento, el evento fue tan grande que toda Hispanoamérica supo de ello.

By the early 1960’s, Daniel had became so inseparable with the character that there could be no other choice to lay “El Huracán Ramírez” in the remaining movies, and Daniel starred in at least five such movies: The "Huracán Ramírez" character appeared in three additional films: Daniel definitely did not play "Huracán Ramírez" in the final movie, and in a 1997 interview he also indicated he did not don the mask in the two "Torito" films, which were chiefly about a boxer (played by Pedro Infante Jr.). Last Tuesday night, Halloween in the USA but in Mexico only fifteen minutes before start of the Mexican “Days of the Dead”, Daniel García Artega, who was the most famous man to wrestle as “El Huracán Ramírez” and one of the five or ten most famous characters in the 73+-year history of lucha libre, was pronounced dead.
