He is a former holder of the IWRG Intercontinental Heavyweight Championship and a co-holder of the IWRG Intercontinental Tag Team Championship along with El Hijo de Cien Caras.

Professional wrestling career

The wrestler currently known as Máscara Año 2000, Jr. made his professional wrestling debut at some point in 1999, under an undisclosed ring name.[1] From 1999 until 2006 he wrestled without revealing his family relations to his father Jesús Reyes González, better known as Luchador Máscara Año 2000.[3] This is a practice not uncommon in Lucha libre where sons often "learn the trade" before being given the "family name".[4]

In September, 2006 he was finally introduced to the wrestling world as Dr. Máscara Año 2000, Jr. with his father publicly supporting him as he began to make a name for himself in the wrestling ring.[5] A year later his brother was introduced to the wrestling world as El Hijo de Máscara Año 2000. Máscara Año 2000, Jr. has primarily worked for International Wrestling Revolution Group (IWRG), a Mexican promotion based out of Naucalpan, State of Mexico, for most of his career as Máscara Año 2000, Jr. although he did wrestle a few matches for Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) in 2007.[6] It would not be long before Máscara Año 2000, Jr. began teaming with both Cien Caras, Jr. and El Hijo de Cien Caras, two wrestlers who in storyline terms are the sons of Máscara Año 2000, Jr.'s uncle Cien Caras, but have actually paid for the rights to use the names.[3] The three formed a group called Los Hermanos Dinamita, Jr. ("The Dynamite Brothers Junior") the next generation of Los Hermanos Dinamita (Cien Caras, Máscara Año 2000, Sr. and Universo 2000). Máscara Año 2000, Jr. and El Hijo de Cien Caras teamed up to defeat El Felino and Pantera to win the IWRG Intercontinental Tag Team Championship on May 31, 2007, Máscara Año 2000, Jr.'s first wrestling championship.[7] The team quickly established themselves as the most dominant IWRG Tag Team Champions as they held the title for 801 days and made 11 successful title defenses, although they did have a long period of inactivity as a team in early to mid 2009 due to Hijo de Cien Caras not working many dates for IWRG.

On November 2, 2008 Máscara Año 2000, Jr. was one of 10 wrestlers who put their mask on the line under Lucha de Apuesta, or bet match, rules in IWRG's annual Castillo del Terror ("Castle of Terror") match, a Steel Cage match where the last man in the cage is forced to unmask. The match came down to Máscara Año 2000, Jr. and Arlequin as the final two wrestlers, with Máscara Año 2000, Jr. pinning his opponent to keep his mask safe.[8] He also participated in the 2009 Castillo del Terror but escaped the cage mid-way through the match.[9] On March 14, 2009 Máscara Año 2000, Jr. defeated Scorpio, Jr. to win the IWRG Rey del Ring ("King of the Ring") title.[10] He never lost the title in the ring as the IWRG awards the Rey del Ring championship to the winner of the annual tournament, which he can then defend as a proper championship for the following year. Los Hermanos Dinamita Jr. lost the tag team title to Ricky Cruz and Scorpio, Jr. on August 9, 2009.[11] After not defending the Mexican National Heavyweight Championship since September, 2007 Charly Manson's first title defense came against Máscara Año 2000, Jr. on December 5, 2009 making the Mexican National Heavyweight title active again after three years.[12]

In March, 2010 Máscara Año 2000, Jr. became involved in a storyline with Dhani Jones, a Cincinnati Bengals Linebacker who hosts a show called Dhani Tackles the Globe on the Travel Channel. During an IWRG show in Arena Naucalpan in March, 2010 Jones and his camera crew taped a segment where he challenged Máscara Año 2000, Jr. to a match, a challenge that was quickly accepted.[13] The two wrestled in the main event of an IWRG show on March 14, 2010. Jones entered the ring wearing a traditional lucha mask but the Mexico State wrestling and boxing commission would not allow him to actually wrestle in it as it had not been approved by the commission. The match between the two went over 20 minutes and was described as "good for a rookie" by SuperLuchas magazine crediting both Jones' athleticism and Máscara Año 2000, Jr.'s skills. Initially it looked like Jones won the match as he pinned Máscara Año 2000, Jr. after a low blow while the referee was not looking. Following the pinfall the decision was reversed and Máscara Año 2000, Jr. won by Disqualification, although it's not clear if the disqualification part of the match will be shown on the Travel Channel show.[5] The episode of Dhani Jones Tackles the Globe featuring Máscara Año 2000, Jr. is scheduled to air on June 14, 2010.

In April, 2010 the Mexico State stripped the team of Black Terry, Dr. Cerebro and Cerebro Negro of the Estado de Mexico (State of Mexico) Trios Championship as Cerebro Negro had not wrestled in the State of Mexico for 90 days. Máscara Año 2000, Jr. teamed up with Máscara Año 2000 and El Hijo de Máscara Año 2000 for the tournament, qualifying for the finals by defeating first Chico Che, Jr., Ultraman Jr. and Zatura and then Brazo de Plata, Brazo Metálico and El Hijo del Brazo de Plata to qualify for the finals of the tournament.[14] Three days later, on April 18, 2010 Máscara Año 2000, Jr. teamed up with El Canek to face Scorpio, Jr. and Pirata Morgan in a Relevos Suicidas where the losing team would wrestle each other, risking either their hair, mask or the IWRG Intercontinental Heavyweight Championship which El Canek held. Máscara Año 2000, Jr. and El Canek lost and faced off in a match for Máscara's mask and El Canek's title. Máscara Año 2000, Jr. managed to defend his mask, pinning El Canek to become the new heavyweight champion, making the title active for the first time since 2006.[15]

AAA vs. IWRG feud

During an IWRG show on April 29, 2010 Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) wrestler Silver King showed up for the show, allegedly to promote the movie "Nacho Libre II" but ended up starting an interpromotional feud between AAA and IWRG.[16] Los Junior Dinamitas quickly came to the defense of IWRG, wrestling against Silver King and other AAA representatives such as Alex Koslov, Chessman and Cibernético.[17][18] During AAA's TripleMania XVIII Los Junior Dinamitas made a surprise appearance moments after Silver King and Último Gladiador won the AAA World Tag Team Championship to challenge the new champions. This marked the first time IWRG wrestlers appeared on AAA television.[19] On June 20, 2010 Máscara Año 2000, Jr. and El Hijo de Cien Caras defeated Los Piratos (Pirata Morgan and El Hijo de Pirata Morgan to win the IWRG Tag Team Championship for a second time.[20] On June 26, 2010 Silver King defeated Máscara Año 2000, Jr. to win the IWRG Intercontinental Heavyweight Championship in an AAA/IWRG interpromotional match.[21] On November 14, 2010, Los Junior Dinamitas lost the IWRG Intercontinental Tag Team Championship back to Los Piratos.[22] On November 29, 2010, Máscara Año 2000, Jr.'s tag team partner of many years, El Hijo de Cien Caras, was assassinated in Coyoacán, Mexico City.[23][24] On December 19, 2010, Máscara Año 2000, Jr. defeated El Hijo de Pirata Morgan to win the UWF United States Heavyweight Championship.[25]

Personal life

Máscara Año 2000, Jr. is the son of luchador Jesús Reyes González, whom his ring name is taken from. He's also got a brother who wrestles as "El Hijo de Máscara Año 2000" and he's the nephew of Carmelo Reyes González (Cien Caras) and Andrés Reyes González (Universo 2000).[3] During the buildup to the match with Dhani Jones Máscara Año 2000, Jr. revealed that he used to play Fullback for the White Eagles football team, although no school name or city was mentioned, before he became a Luchador.[1]
