Pequeño Olímpico (real name unrevealed; born July 15, 1971) is a Mexican luchador enmascarado, or masked professional wrestler. Pequeño Olímpico is a part of Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre's (CMLL) Mini-Estrella, or "Mini", division and holds the record for the longest CMLL World Mini-Estrella Championship reign, 1,442 days. He is currently in his second reign as the Mini-Estrella Champion. Pequeño Olímpico is Spanish for "Little Olympian", alluding to the fact that he wrestles as a mini version of Olímpico. He previously worked as Cicloncito Ramírez, a mini version of Ciclón Ramirez.

Professional wrestling career

The man who would later wrestle as "Pequeño Olímpico" made his professional wrestling debut in 1992, that same year Antonio Peña, head booker of Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL), left CMLL to form his own promotion, Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA); Peña had been the mastermind behind the CMLL Minis division and most of the Minis in CMLL decided to leave with Peña. Serrano and a number of other wrestlers were brought in to replenish the division.[2] The future Pequeño Olímpico was brought into CMLL to replenish the Mini division, he was given the ring persona of Cicloncito Ramírez, a mini version of Ciclón Ramirez who worked in CMLL at the time. He kept working as Cicloncito Ramírez even after the man he was based on left CMLL. Working in the Mini division does not necessarily mean that he is a dwarf as several short wrestlers work in the "Mini" division.[3] In the mid to late-1990s CMLL did not focus much on their Minis division, thus Ciclocito Ramirez rarely made it onto CMLL's television shows.[3] In 2002, years after Ciclón Ramírez had left CMLL, it was decided to repackage him as "Pequeño Olímpico", a mini of a popular Tecnico (Face or "good guy") Olímpico. About a year after becoming Pequeño Olímpico he defeated Pierrothito to win the CMLL World Mini-Estrella Championship on December 9, 2003.[4] Pequeño Olímpico would go on to successfully defend the title against former champion Pierrotito, Pequeño Violencia, Toro Bill, Gitanito and three defenses against Pequeño Damián 666.[5][6][7] On November 20, 2007 Pequeño Olímpico lost the title to Pequeño Damián 666, ending his title reign after 1,442 days, the longest reign of any Mini's champion.[7] Pequeño Olímpico remains one of CMLL's main "tecnico" Minis as the Mini division has gotten more air time and promotional focus in the last couple of years.[3] Pequeño Olímpico was one of 13 Minis that risked their mask in a Steel Cage Luchas de Apuestas match in the main event of CMLL's La Hora Cero Pay-Per-View on January 11, 2009. Pequeño Olímpico was the 7th wrestler to escape the cage to save his mask.[8] In August CMLL began a "Bicentennial tournament" specifically for the Mini-Estrella division, both to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Mexico as a nation and the 18th anniversary of CMLL's Mini-Estrella division. The prize of the tournament was an opportunity to leave the Mini-Estrellas division and work with the regular male wrestlers of CMLL.[9][10] Pequeño Olímpico was part of the first of two torneo cibernetico elimination matches but did not qualify for the finals.[11] On February 13, 2011, Olímpico regained the Mini-Estrella Championship from Bam Bam.[12]
