Arturo Moreno, the Actor, 1980-2022

Arturo Moreno is a man with many faces. Known for his bold decisions, flamboyant style, and strong business acumen, Arturo Moreno is one of the most well-known personalities in the entertainment industry. At the same time, he has been called eccentric, erratic and even crazy by some. The truth lies somewhere between these two extremes. Arturo has always been a risk-taker—he’s an actor at heart who took leaps of faith to challenge himself and grow personally as well as professionally. That said, these are some interesting facts about Mr. Moreno that you might not know:

1980: The year that changed his life forever

The year 1980 was a fateful year for Arturo Moreno. He was a struggling actor at the time and was involved in a near-fatal car accident. The injuries he sustained put an end to his acting career and put him in a coma for three months. When he woke up, he had to grapple with the fact that his life had been irrevocably changed. It’s said that the accident made him more determined than ever to succeed. At the time, he was dating his now-wife, Sandy. They were still in the early stages of their relationship. When he woke up, she was by his side. She saw him struggling to return to normal life. Arturo saw the accident as a reset button. He decided to follow his childhood dream of becoming an entrepreneur.

A short stint as a wrestler

Arturo Moreno’s brother Ricardo was a professional wrestler who had a contract with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now known as WWE). Arturo broke into the wrestling business as a wrestler himself, using the name “The Mexican Wolf”. He was only a wrestler for a year. He realized that he was better suited to be a promoter than an actual wrestler, so he retired from the ring and went back to being a promoter. He is best known for promoting the LA Aztecs, a wrestling team that was popular in the late 1980s. Arturo started out promoting local wrestling events at the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles. He built his brand by booking popular wrestlers like Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, Roddy Piper and Ted DiBiase.

1990: Becoming a real-estate mogul

As a wrestling promoter, Arturo Moreno made a killing. He also had real estate investments, but his biggest break came when an associate suggested they buy up some real estate in downtown Los Angeles.

It should be noted that Arturo didn’t make all of his money in real estate. He was also involved in the insurance industry, and he owned a casino in Las Vegas.

Eventually, Arturo agreed to sell them the team, but he had a few conditions. He told them that he wanted to oversee the team’s operations, and he wanted to change the name of the team. He wanted to rebrand the team as the Los Angeles Angels. He promised the investors that he would make them $10 million within two years, and he kept his promise.

Arturo also contributed heavily to the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian. He also gave to the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association, which helped them rebuild their home, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
