AAA owner Dorian Roldan and the Atlante Fútbol Club commented on Rivera’s passing:

Sin duda alguna. Hoy la lucha libre mexicana pierde a su voz más carismática. Querido Rudo, descansa hasta dónde quiera que estés. Por fin, DOS GRANDES COMPADRES, se vuelven a ver de frente. Que junto con el Dr. Morales narren desde la Arena Celestial.

DEP Rudo. pic.twitter.com/0CJD4XiPkU

POST Wrestling would like to send our condolences to the family, friends and loved ones of Arturo Rivera.

Used to hear him when AAA would air on DirecTV. Obviously couldn’t understand much of what he said knowing very limited spanish. But he was entertaining sounding, and I thought it was cool the way he introduced La Parka (the original.)
