Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (2010–present)Edit

Dragon Lee (2010–2012)Edit

Muñoz was originally trained in lucha libre (professional wrestling) by his father Arturo Muñoz, brother Rush and uncles Franco Columbo, Pit Bull I, and Pit Bull II in his native Tala, Jalisco.[5] After two years of training,[5] he moved to Mexico City to join Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL), where he underwent further training under Arturo Beristain and Tony Salazar.[3] Given a mask and the ring name Dragon Lee, he made his public debut on November 25, 2010, when he took part in CMLL's annual bodybuilding contest and won the beginner's category.[7] Dragon Lee made his wrestling debut on January 4, 2011, when he, working as a técnico, teamed with Fabian el Gitano and Starman in a six-man tag team match, where they were defeated by Arkangel de la Muerte, Boby Zavala and Skándalo.[6]

Lee started his career as a member of the informal Generación 2011 group, which also included fellow debutants Zavala, Enrique Vera Jr., Hombre Bala Jr., Magnus, Signo Jr. and Super Halcón Jr.[8] During the following months, Lee wrestled mainly in six-man tag team matches with and against his stablemates,[9][10] before being involved in first major program the following April, as he participated the Forjando un Ídolo ("Forging an Idol") tournament.[11] With one win and two losses, Dragon Lee finished fourth in his block and failed to advance in the tournament.[5] On April 17, he picked up the biggest win of his young career by winning a ten-man torneo cibernetico.[11] On May 31, Dragon Lee entered a tournament to determine the new CMLL World Super Lightweight Champion, but was eliminated in the semifinal torneo cibernetico.[12] Lee received a title shot against the winner of the tournament, Virus, on November 28, but was unable to dethrone the defending champion.[13] On March 6, 2012, Dragon Lee entered the Torneo Sangre Nueva ("New Blood Tournament"), winning an eight-man torneo cibernetico semifinal match.[14] On March 20, Lee defeated Raziel in the finals to win the tournament.[15] On March 30, Dragon Lee entered the 2012 Torneo Gran Alternativa, teaming with his brother Rush. After victories over the teams of Boby Zavala and Rey Bucanero, and Niebla Roja and Último Guerrero, the brothers were eliminated in the semifinals by Euforia and El Terrible, who won the tournament.[16][17] Lee's run of tournaments continued the following month with the En Busca de un Ídolo tournament/reality television show,[18] where he finished third and narrowly missed advancing to the finals.[19][20]

Místico in May 2013

On June 20, 2012, CMLL held a press conference, during which lucha libre priest Fray Tormenta announced that since Dragon Lee had impressed him during the En Busca de un Ídolo tournament, he wanted him to take over the role of Místico, his storyline protégé.[21][22] Lee immediately accepted Tormenta's offer and received his new mask to officially become the second incarnation of Místico, taking over the highly successful role following the character's original performer, who had signed with WWE in January 2011.[4][21][22][23] Lee wrestled his final match under his old persona on June 24, when he, Diamante and Tritón defeated Cancerbero, Niebla Roja and Raziel via disqualification. Afterwards, Roja attacked Lee, removed his mask and tore it to pieces.[24] For the next six weeks, Místico went on a publicity tour to promote the upcoming "new era" of Místico.[25][26][27]

Místico returned to the ring on January 8, 2013, when he, Máscara Dorada and Titán defeated Los Hijos del Averno (Averno, Ephesto and Mephisto) in a six-man tag team main event.[37][38] The following day, during a match, where he, Atlantis and Marco Corleone faced Euforia, Último Guerrero and Volador Jr., Místico suffered yet another shoulder injury, following a failed springboard dive, and was rushed to an emergency room.[39][40] On January 15, NJPW announced that Místico would be unable to wrestle at the Fantastica Mania events due to a dislocated shoulder, but would still attend the events to sign autographs.[41] On January 18, during the first night of the Fantastica Mania weekend, Místico made an appearance, greeting the fans in attendance at Korakuen Hall.[42] Místico returned to the ring on February 18, teaming with La Máscara and La Sombra in a six-man tag team match, where they defeated Los Invasores (Kraneo, Psicosis and Volador Jr.).[43] On April 19, Místico took part in a ten-man torneo cibernetico to determine the contenders for the vacant Mexican National Welterweight Championship. He and Averno survived the match, setting up a title match between the two.[44] On April 26 at the Arena Mexico 57th Anniversary Show, Místico was defeated by Averno in the match for the Mexican National Welterweight Championship.[45]

Místico returned to the ring on January 13, 2015, during the first day of the Fantastica Mania 2015 tour in Osaka, Japan. He teamed with Jyushin Thunder Liger in a tag team match, where they were defeated by Gedo and Pólvora.[68] Místico worked the entire tour opposite Pólvora,[69] culminating in a singles match between the two on January 19, where Místico was victorious.[70][71] Upon his return to Mexico, Místico formed a new stable named Sky Team with Valiente and Volador Jr.[72] On February 13, Sky Team defeated Los Guerreros Laguneros (Euforia, Niebla Roja and Último Guerrero) to win the CMLL World Trios Championship.[73] In January 2016, Místico returned to Japan for the Fantastica Mania 2016 tour, during which he main evented three of the six shows.[74][75][76] Back in CMLL, Místico won the 2016 Torneo Increíble de Parejas, when he and Mephisto defeated Carístico (the original Místico) and Cibernético in the finals on April 29.[77]
