-Originally from Mexico, but was billed from Japan. After he retired, he moved to Valdosta, GA.
-Wrestled as "Dr. M" in Georgia. When El Mongol
was on suspension in Atlanta, he returned under the black mask as Dr. M to confuse the issue further when Mongol was reinstated. Dandy Jack Crawford would have Mongol and Shikina exchange the mask and claim M was a third wrestler. When Shikina lost the mask Crawford claimed it was not Shikina but "Senor Zapata"
-Promoted shows in Japan for the NWA in the 1950's
-Passed away, although the date and cause are unknown.
-Not to be confused with the original Oki Shikina
, who was active in the 1930s and was actually from Japan.
