Save the page because no one should doubt El Dandy, he is a famous wrestler.

  • After some research, yes I confirm he is a wrestler of some fame. However, adding the nonsense you did regarding him is not a good way to start off an article. --Durin 22:09, 24 May 2005 (UTC)[reply]

keep the page but keep the fan club off it is a internet fad that will go away when the next quote from someone they worship goes to far like this one.

Wow...who died and booked you in "Superbrawl Saturday" Mr. Bitter?

Why wouldn't there be an El Dandy page? -- I agree. Who are these people to doubt El Dandy? Dinsdale1234 23:12, 21 June 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Question about name disambiguation[edit]

When typing in Roberto Gutierrez, the main two hits are for the footballers born in 1983 and 1991. Technically, El Dandy's legal surname is Gutierrez Frias, correct? Would it make sense to have a disambiguation between

  • Roberto Gutierrez (footballer, 1983)
  • Roberto Gutierrez (footballer, 1991)
  • Roberto Gutierrez Frias, the Mexican professional wrestler known as El Dandy


Or is it not really necessary because no one would refer to him or look him up by his legal name (since most know and think of him as El Dandy)? I'm not sure since I don't know much about him, the Mexican wrestling scene, or Hispanic naming norms. Jasonkwe (talk) (contribs) 19:19, 2 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
