You may know me for the name I started my career and sacrificed my life, my family, my friends, everything to be where I am at today.
"Why do I say Lucha? I lived the Lucha, Lucha is my life. I have triumphed all over the world with those 3 names. GQ Mexico, Cruiserwright Champion, 2-time US Champion, 1st ever Mexican to win the NXT Tag Team Championships, and yet that wasn’t enough. And you know what? I say the same thing, because I know I can be World Champion, and what better place to start my heritage, my road, and legacy than in TripleMania Regia.
