Laugna wrestler introduced in CMLL as part of the one of the Guapos U classes. Started out as a tecnico, and actually was part of a trio with Volador Jr. & Mistico during the first few months of Mistico's career. Joined the rudo side in 2005 and hasn't looked back.

Misterioso II's career year so far has been 2006. Misterioso won the Gran Alternativa teaming with Perro Aguayo Jr., which gave him a sort of associate membership in Perros del Mal for a while. Only 6 weeks later, Misterioso took the mask of respected luchador El Pantera in an Arena Mexico cage match.

Misterioso has plateaued as a midcard rudo since 2006. Misterioso is seen as a good rudo, and quality opposition for the many CMLL high flying tecnicos, but has rarely gotten showcases matches on his own.

He's been grouped with other La Laguna area wrestlers at times, but didn't have a permanent group of his own. At a time where almost every pushed rudo was being set up in one group or allied with another, Misterioso was noticeably kept on his own. Misterioso also missed out on a scheduled trip to NJPW as an opponent of Mistico in 2009, when his appearance was canceled due to the H1N1 virus outbreak. Misterioso did pick up the regional Occidente Light Heavyweight Championship twice during this time, but not much was made of it outside of Guadalajara.

Misterioso finally got to join a group in 2009. Poder Mexica needed a new third as Black Warrior drifted from the group and drafted Misterioso. The new trio continued the entertaining work of the previous alignment, but were unable to win the Mexican National Trios Championship in multiple chances.

Misterioso was promoted as "Misterioso II" exclusively around his debut, but started to be inconsistently listed as "Misterioso Jr." somewhere along the years until Misterioso Jr. became the dominant spelling. As of 2010, Misterioso and CMLL claim "Misterioso Jr." is his official name, which has caused conflict with another wrestler claiming he alone owns the right to "Misterioso Jr.".

Departed CMLL at the start of May 2024.


An interview in Box Y Lucha 2004 quotes Misterioso as saying his first match was as Vaquero.
