Part of a wrestling family, but portrayed as an orphan who learned the sport from mentor Fray Tormenta, Mistico debuted in CMLL in 2004. Mistico rose to the top of the promotion at a record pace, and was arguably the top star in the promotion a year later.

Mistico is one of the biggest stars of the moment in Lucha Libre, if not the biggest. His name being part of a wrestling card can draw thousands of extra fans, regardless of the matchup. He's crossed over to Mexican popular culture and been featured on television shows and music videos.

Mistico is currently a CMLL wrestler, but has been offered a deal by WWE. At this time, it appears he's staying in CMLL, but the option to jump the United States promotion will likely always been available to him. CMLL claims to have Mistico under a solid contract, and owns the rights to name and image of Mistico.

Mistico is actually a man from a family of wrestlers, and is the nephew of CMLL official Tony Salazar. He'd been wrestling under different names since at least the beginning of the decades. Directly prior to being Mistico, he was Astro Boy (taking the name from a deceased brother), an spectacular undercard wrestler who also wrestled in Japan from time to time.

In 2003, CMLL's fans told the promotion that they wanted to see more new stars, and CMLL tried to fulfill the request with Sagrado, a devoutly religious young high flying babyface who was promoted as a trainee of famous wrestling priest Fray Tormenta. Sagrado flopped out of the gate, with the blame being shifted towards Sagrado's ringwork (he was nervous and he wasn't ready for that spot), CMLL decided to recycle the entire concept with a different wrestler.

A year later, Mistico debuted, which much the same back story, while Sagrado was downplayed to avoid focus on the similarities. Mistico might have previously been passed over for being a smaller wrestler, even by Mexico standards, but his spectacular moves (and his ability not to screw them up) made him the exactly exciting new young guy fans wanted.

Shared Names

Every name Mistico's used, someone else has also used. It hasn't always been planned that way, but it can be a bit confusing.

  • Mistico is the more famous man under the name; the Juarez wrestler using the same name is also known as Incognito.
  • Mistico started out as the second Astro Boy; he was the brother of the first. See Astro Boy (disambugation) for a list of other Astro Boys.
  • Similarly, Mistico was one of a number of wrestlers who've used the name Dr. Karonte. See Dr. Karonte (disambugation) for the others.
  • Mistico wrestled as Komachi for Japan's Michinoku Pro Wrestling, replacing Volador Jr. in that identity.
