Ligero made his debut facing Martin Kirby on the first ever episode of on 27 June 2016 in a winning effort. The next week he was in a match against then ROH World Heavyweight Champion Jay Lethal in one of the company's best matches in its short history. The match ended in a draw after Martin Kirby ran out and attacked Ligero and Lethal. The next week on Loaded, Martin Kirby faced "Ligero" (someone dressed as Ligero, but with a very noticeably different physique) and began dominating and putting him down on the mic until the real Ligero ran out and chased Kirby away. Two weeks later, at Built to Destroy, the two opened the show, with a "Mask v. Pride" stipulation where if Ligero lost, he would have to unmask, and if Kirby lost he would have to wear a dress. After winning, he put Kirby in a sleeper hold and forcefully put the yellow flowery dress on him and then woke him up.
Next week, he took part in another match that is one of the best in the company's history: a triple threat between Will Ospreay and Noam Dar. He once again opened the 6th episode of Loaded in a match with Joseph Conners. At WCPW Stacked, Ligero took part in a triple threat with the debuting Ethan Carter III and Pete Dunne. He answered the open challenge made by WCPW World Champion Joseph Conners in the opening match of Loaded episode 8 in which he lost, ending his winning streak. He faced Travis Banks at Loaded episode 10 with Martin Kirby handcuffed to the ring ropes on the outside, in which he lost after Martin Kirby spat water into his eyes. At WCPW's first iPPV Refuse to Lose, he faced Alberto El Patron and Travis Banks in a triple threat match to become the inaugural WCPW Internet Champion in which he won. At WCPW True Legacy, Ligero successfully defended the belt against Pete Dunne, only to be attacked by Dunne's new partner, Travis Banks, forming the Strong Style Collective.
