I remember him and Flores.  WWWF had a habit of bringing in guys and giving them Phantom titles (Waldo Von Erich-European Champion).  But if the guy didn't wear a belt, and didn't make regular defenses of their "titles", fans smelled the BS and ignored them.

Rocha was OK in the ring as I remember-but he was nothing special.  He had no major fan base that I recall.  Rocha had a push in Vancouver.  he feuded with Gene Kiniski and had a good following there.
