quick Profile

As of 2006, Apolo Dantes is mostly inactive as in-ring wrestler. Instead, he's running the weekly Tuesday and Saturday CMLL shows at Arena Coliseo Guadalajara. He'll work the occasional DF show as a member of the Capos or to fill out a rudo side, and the odd Guadalajara area show. In late 2009 he was let go from his duties for CMLL & the running of shows at Arena Coliseo Guadalajara. Dantes would later announce the formation of a new promotion based in Guadalajara called Dantes Lucha Factory. The promotion would run monthly shows before Dantes was brought back to run Guadalajara again. His stint was shorter this time, and he's back on this outside as of 2015.
