Professional wrestling career
Arena Coliseo Reynosa (2012–2017)
Komander is a first-generation luchador, meaning he is the first member of his family to become a wrestler. He started training remarkably early for a first-generation wrestler and made his debut in 2012, working matches in his hometown Reynosa, Rio Bravo, Matamoros, Monterrey and Parras de la Fuente. Working in all three of the big venues in Reynosa, Arena Juba, Arena Deportivo Reynosa (formerly Arena el Angel) and most importantly Arena Coliseo Reynosa. He was quickly picked up by War City Wrestling, a regional wrestling promotion in the northeastern part of Mexico. This relationship also made it possible for him to get bookings in Zacatecas.
In 2014 he formed the team Reyes del Aire del Reynosa with Rey Astral and Magnifico, and they went on to become WAR City Trios champions in 2015. Being regarded as a highly skilled worker and flyer known for his various ropetricks and creativity, Komander quickly gained popularity among the fans and was regarded as the biggest star in Reynosa during this time until 2017. He had rivalries with Monterrey wrestlers Ronaldinho and El Divo. He and Ronaldinho feuded back and forth over the WAR City Cruiserweight Championship, and on October 4 they had a mask and championship (Komander) vs. hair (Ronaldinho) match, which Komander won. However he later lost the title to Ronaldinho in a non-apuesta match.
Mexico independent scene (2017–present)
In 2017, Komander decided to focus full-time on being a wrestler and starting looking for bookings all over the country and not only locally. He stated he wanted to wrestle outside of Reynosa more often and that is ultimate goal was to get into Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide.
In May 2017, Komander made his Mexico City debut after being discovered by the promotion Lucha Memes. He lost his first match, a singles match vs. veteran wrestler Eterno in Arena Coliseo Coacalco. He wrestled for Lucha Memes twice more in 2018, losing once and one match vs. Iron Kid resulting in a no-contest after Komander was unable to finish after hitting the ground hard after a suicide dive and needing medical attention.
Throughout 2018 and 2019 he started wrestling more in Monterrey, taking part in a lot of events hosted by Monterrey based promotions such as MDA, KAOZ Lucha Libre and EMLL.
Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide (2019–present)
Komander technically made his AAA debut in 2015, working a AAA Sin Limite show in his hometown of Reynosa. However that match was considered a Dark Match since it never made TV. Komander was also underage at the time and would have been unable to officially sign a contract with AAA.
Komander was supposed to make his debut for AAA on June 9, 2019 in Monterrey but was replaced last second by another wrestler for unknown reasons. On July 21 he wrestled for Pro Wrestling Mexico in Monterrey, a local promotion affiliated with AAA.
United States (2022–present)
Komander made his United States debut with Game Changer Wrestling (GCW) on June 18, 2022 and found work in many US independent promotions before debuting with AEW on March 1, 2023 and officially signing with the promotion on April 19. Since then, he has split time among AEW, AAA, and the US indies.
