Biography

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 bigfest stars of Lucha Libre. 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 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.

In Febuary 2011 signed with the WWE and took on the name of Sin Cara. Wrestled as a singles wrestler as well as forming a team with Rey Mysterio Jr.. In January 2014 he was released by WWE and returned to Mexico.

Joined AAA under a new name of Myzteziz. At Heroes Inmortales VIII, Myzteziz won a Royal Rumble Lumberjack match to win the Copa Antonio Peña. On May 24, 2015, Myzteziz came together with two former WWE superstars El Patrón Alberto and Rey Mysterio Jr. to form the "Dream Team" for AAA's Lucha Libre World Cup. The trio eventually won the tournament, defeating Johnny Mundo, Matt Hardy and Mr. Anderson in the finals. On August 9 at Triplemanía XXIII, Myzteziz was defeated by Mysterio in what was billed as a "dream match". Following the match, Myzteziz turned heel, attacking Mysterio and beginning a feud between the two.

On the 10/9/15 CMLL Arena Mexico show, Myzteziz made a surprise appearance to announce he was returning to Arena Mexico for a Lucha Libre Elite show on 10/25. He also said he would be changing his name as AAA owns the Myzteziz name. AAA responded days later by announcing on social media that they had released Myzteziz. In reality, AAA did not know of Myzteziz plan to appear at Arena Mexico until hours before it happened. So they only released him after but legal action could still come for Myzteziz for breaking his contract with AAA. He eventually settled on the name Caristico and his new gear will use aspects of all his previous identities (Mistico, Sin Cara, Myzteziz).

It is speculated that he left AAA because he was not the main star (that being Rey jr. next being Alberto el Patron) & because he had issues with Alberto el Patron which could not be resolved to which they could not work together anymore.

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 became known as Incognito, and is now WWE's Hunico.
  • 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.
  • Wrestler, formerly known as Dragon Lee now wrestles as Mistico II.
