Was apparently set to debut for LLI in mid-1994 (at the age of only 17) as part of a trio with aging relatives Dos Caras and Mil Máscaras, but this never panned out as he became successful in Greco-Roman wrestling. He became part of the Mexican Greco-Roman wrestling team. After not making it into the 2000 Olympic team he finally entered lucha libre.

Upon joining CMLL, Dos Caras Jr. was pushed as a top heavyweight tecnico. He had feuds with Ultimo Guerrero, Universo 2000 and Kenzo Suzuki, formed a tag team with Lizmark Jr., and did some work as a trio with Dr. Wagner Jr. and Mistico.

Dos was always on the side of good, and pushed as an agile guy for his size. He also did some MMA fighting sometimes with his mask and sometimes without.


Dos Caras Jr. turned heel shocking many in CMLL. He briefly feuded with Shocker before signing with the WWE.

My name is Alberto del Rio...but you already know that

On August 20, 2010 Alberto made his television debut for the WWE and began a feud with Rey Misterio Jr. Alberto would soon be joined by Chimaera now known as Ricardo Rodríguez who would serve as his ring announcer for the majority of his time in WWE. Over the next four years, Alberto would go on to have an illustrious career by winning the 2011 Royal Rumble, becoming a Money in the Bank winner, WWE Champion, and World Heavyweight Champion.

Departure from WWE

In August 2014 Alberto was fired from the WWE due to "unprofessional conduct" following an altercation with an employee. According to Alberto, the employee made a racially discriminatory comment towards him, and when Alberto confronted the employee he refused to apologize instead smirking at Alberto to which Alberto slapped him.

On August 17 at TripleMania XXII, El Patrón and his father Dos Caras appeared officially debuting for AAA. On December 7 at Guerra de Titanes, Alberto defeated Texano Jr. to become the new AAA World Heavyweight Champion. With the win, Alberto became the first wrestler to have held both the CMLL and AAA World Heavyweight Championships. He went on to feud with Hijo del Perro Aguayo and La Sociedad.

Alberto defeated Shane the Glamour Boy and El Mesías in Puerto Rico to capture the WWL World Heavyweight Championship in January 2015.

He then appeared on Lucha Underground and had feuds with Brian Cage and Johnny Mundo which spilled over to AAA. He also began wrestling for ROH where he had matches with Christopher Daniels, Roderick Strong & Jay Lethal.

Return to WWE

On October 25th, 2015 Alberto returned to WWE defeating John Cena for the United States Championship.

Indies & Impact Wrestling

Alberto left WWE again in late 2016 & began wrestling in independent promotions all over the world such as in Mexico & the U.K. Was to return to AAA only to leave after becoming upset with AAA for attempting to trademark his name. He debuted for TNA now known as Impact Wrestling in early 2017 and began a feud with Bobby Lashley for the Impact Wrestling heavyweight Championship. He won the belt, but was quickly suspended and stripped over a domestic issue. He was fired in 2018 after no-showing an Impact/Lucha Underground crossover event. With nowhere else to go, he started Nación Lucha Libre which only really had one run in 2019 and flopped after that.

Return to AAA

Alberto El Patrón made his AAA return in Lucha World Cup, 2023, and became their top domestic técnico very quickly.
