Super Muñeco was a journeyman wrestler working as Sanguinario Jr. (no relation to the Sanguinario that died in 2002) and other names, who switched to Super Muñeco in the early 80s for the Pavillion Azteca promotion. When in the late 80s he was found by Benjamin Mora, who at the time ran the Baja California area (Tijuana) and had just bought the "Lucha Libre" magazine from Valente Perez, he was given a big push right away. Just to put things into perspective, "Lucha Libre" was the magazine that 'created' characters like Mil Mascaras and Tinieblas, and it was pretty much like a Mexican Apter Mag, putting on the cover the "cool" guys they liked like Dos Caras, Canek, etc., so being featured on covers with Santo Jr. or Atlantis helped.

At first he was really resented and many old-schoolers would semi-shoot on him (they would work really stiff on him, potato him, etc. every night) because they hated to be selling for a clown, but eventually he proved himself as a good worker (back then he was sort of good) and good draw, so they all loved working with him.

His team with Super Ratón (a little dude built like Mighty Mouse...sorta like a 5'3" Jim Duggan with the big chest) and Super Pinocho (Pinocchio). Pinocho was a poor worker but Raton used to be pretty good. They worked a fast comedy style, and soon became draws with the kids. For a short while, they were awesome draws, getting sellouts at Arena Mexico for a masks vs. masks match with the four Tortugas Ninja (they teamed with Coliseo 2000, who was Muñeco's protege), and drawing 17,500+ in Monterrey for a mask match against Los Thundercats (Leono, Tigro and Panthro).

One funny thing about the Ninja Turtle or Thundercats kind of gimmicks is that usually under the mask there would be an awesome underrated worker, like a Lasser or Skayde type.

Anyway, they got into AAA because they were almost tailor made for Peña's promotion as comedy workers who could do fun stuff, but their trio career in there got killed when Pinocho shoot unmasked La Parka. Back in 1992 during the "TV boom" there was like 14 or 15 different magazines, and they would try anything to get some leverage over the others. For whatever reason, AAA banned "Titanes del Ring" photographers from taking pictures, but they eventually came back. Pinocho was best buddies with a photographer of "Titanes del Ring", who suggested him to unmask Parka so he could take a good picture, and the magazine next week would have a "FRAUD! Parka is Principe Island!" (his former gimmick) cover, which also served as revenge.

Pinocho got such heat for that, that he was blacklisted from AAA and many wrestlers vowed to shoot on him if they were with him in the ring. He even retired for a while so people would "forget".

Anyhow, that started the Muñeco singles push. His work was getting worse even though he could do athletic stuff, but his gimmick worked. He kind of failed in pushes as a major star, and totally bombed as a heel, but stayed a few good years in AAA and eventually left to become and independent contractor which is what he is now. His days of being a major draw are long gone, too, but he's still a fairly popular indy star.

Muñeco is also the wrestler with more RECORDED mask & hair match wins than anyone else. Apparently Estrella Blanca (some 60s and 70s indy star) is the one with more mask wins, with the legend claiming 200+, but we have a record of 20 or so from him.

He's won mask matches over legends such as Ninja Turtles, Thundercats, Mazinger Z (Majinga Z), Hombre Lobo (The Wolfman), Batman, Destroyer (wait until Yohe reads this one [Smile] ), The Police, Kamikaze Ninja (Yukihide Ueno, who was Battle Ranger in FMW and Policeman in Super Delfin's promotion), Ultra Tiger (a Tiger Mask clone, also was Ueno), Nazi Soldier and the Mummies from Peru I and II. Actually he's won a few semi-major hairs like Espanto Jr., Popitekus, Ray Richard and Medico Asesino Jr.

Our count (as of 2005) says 82 masks and 21 hairs, all documented and verified.
