Los Capos was a Lucha Libre stable consisting of Los Hermanos Dinamita (Cien Caras, Mascara Año 2000 and Universo 2000 and Apolo Dantes. They wrestle primarily in Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre and they are, for the most part, rudos, and very much so. However, there have been times when they have briefly turned técnico or at least used their rudo ways on even more hated rudos.

Caras, Mascara and Universo are brothers and are listed oldest to youngest. They are primarily brawlers although Universo has shown some ability to his highspots such as topes and La Silla. Apolo Dantés is a solid all around worker but is not featured as often. The brothers are not considered very talented but they are very popular with the Mexican crowds and sometimes, the promotion decides to use them as técnicos. When they are técnicos or just participating in rudo vs. rudo feuds, they are usually fighting with Pierroth Jr. and his allies. The allies have changed depending on the time but they have consisted of; Los Talibanes (Emilio Charles Jr, Scorpio Jr & Bestia Salvaje), Vampiro Canadiense, Perro Aguayo Jr., Perro Aguayo, Veneno and even Gigante Silva . Universo is the youngest of the brothers and has shown he can be OK in the ring but the star of the family has to be Cien Caras. Caras is by no means considered a great worker but he has been one of the biggest drawing heavyweights in the history of Lucha Libre. He was involved in the match that drew the largest crowd for lucha at well over twenty thousand fans. In 2004, Caras had a big retirement match set where he won the hairs of Pierroth & Vampiro Canadiense in the year-end show for CMLL with Máscara Año Dos Mil. He was back wrestling a couple weeks later, claiming he still had business with Hijo de Perro Aguayo and his father. It was eventually settled in a double hair vs. hair match on March 18 at the big spring show, "Homenaje a Dos Leyendas." Caras and Máscara lost the match due to a low blow from Perro Senior (who had been retired for four years prior to this match).

After that the stable quickly disapeared as Apollo decided to become a referee, and eventually became in charge of Arena Coliseo Guadalajara. The brothers, Cien, Mascara and Universo still team up and Los Capos is often used as an alternate name for Los Hermanos Dinamita'.
