Juan Conrado Aguilar Jáuregui (November 26, 1958 – January 15, 2006), better known by his ring name El Texano, was a Mexican professional wrestler. From the early 1970s to the early 2000s, he wrestled under masked and unmasked monikers for various promotions including Universal Wrestling Association (UWA), World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW), and World Championship Wrestling (WCW), and Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL). His son Juan Aguilar Leos wrestles under the name El Texano, Jr..
Aguilar is perhaps best known as part of a lucha libre trio known as Los Misioneros de la Muerte (Missionaries of Death). Composed of El Signo, Negro Navarro, and Aguilar as El Texano, a cowboy themed character, the groundbreaking team performed together throughout the 1980s and eventually broke the trio style into main event status.
Later on that decade, Texano was paired up with César Cuauhtémoc González, better known as Silver King, to create Los Cowboys. The duo became Mexico's premiere tag team, feuding with Los Villanos, among others, and achieving UWA and WWA World Tag Team title reigns.
Los Cowboys later worked for the Universal Group in Japan, where they feuded with the likes of the Brasos, the Villanos, El Gran Hamada and Perro Aguayo, and Santo Jr. and Kendo.
Performing as Silver King II, Aguilar again teamed with González at WCW's Clash of the Champions XIX, fighting a losing effort to the Fabulous Freebirds. The following year, the duo entered CMLL where they won tag team gold again.
Throughout much of 2005, Aguilar had been in poor health and complained of difficulty breathing, indigestion, and overall malaise. On November 10 that year, he was hospitalized in the intensive care wing at Hospital Obregon. He'd reportedly put on substantial weight and was adamant about "not using steroids or any junk."
Finally, on the evening of January 15, 2006, Aguilar was rushed to the hospital in Guadalajara, Jalisco, for emergency surgery. At the age of 47, he was pronounced dead upon arrival due to lung and respiratory failure.
