Rey Horus (born June 24, 1984) is a Mexican luchador enmascarado, or masked professional wrestler currently signed to Lucha Underground, formerly known as the second El Hijo de Rey Misterio. His former ring name is Spanish for "The Son of the King of Mystery" or more correctly "The Son of Rey Misterio", and he was the second wrestler under that name. He mainly works on the independent circuit in the United States and in Mexico. His real name is not a matter of public record, as is often the case with masked wrestlers in Mexico where their private lives are kept a secret from the wrestling fans.[3]

Professional wrestling career

Independent circuit (2007–present)

Horus began wrestling in 2007 in some Tijuana promotions.

On May 27, 2011, since the retirement of El Hijo de Rey Misterio, he was presented by both Rey Misterio Sr. and Konnan as the second El Hijo de Rey Misterio, making his debut in Tijuana.[4] His first match as Misterio was a tournament to crown the WWA World Welterweight Champion on May 27, 2011, which Horus won. In 2014, Misterio changed his name to Rey Horus, because the original El Hijo de Rey Misterio returned to wrestling.

On March 27, 2015, Horus made his biggest appearance in the United States when he participated in the WrestleMania Weekend King of Indies tournament.[5] Horus defeated Lil Cholo in the first round,[6] but on March 28 he was defeated by Willie Mack in the quarter-final match.[7] On April 6, 2015, Evolve announced Horus as AR Fox's substitute at Evolve 41.[8]

On September 1, 2017, Horus entered Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's 2017 Battle of Los Angeles, losing to Rey Fenix in his first round match.[9]

Lucha Underground (2016–present)

In the debut episode of Lucha Underground (season one) on October 29, 2014, the opening scene featured an unnamed character being rescued from multiple attackers by the green masked Dragon Azteca. This led to Dragon Azteca mentoring the white-hooded unnamed character in lucha libre.[10][11][12] During part one of season one's Ultima Lucha, El Dragon Azteca fought his hooded protégé to a draw at the entrance of the Temple where Lucha Underground's matches occurred. Due to the prophecy predicting El Dragon Azteca's death if he entered the Temple, the hooded man offered to go in Azteca's place to rescue Black Lotus from Dario Cueto. Azteca refused to listen, vowing that his spirit would live on after his death.[13][14] Following the storyline death of Dragon Azteca, his mask was taken up by his student.[10]

In late 2015 Horus took part in Lucha Underground first appearing in the Season 1 finale as a nameless outside spectator but at Ultima Lucha 1 took up the mask of his master and became known as Dragon Azteca Jr. In Season 2 Dragon Azteca Jr. started participating in matches and won The Lucha Underground Trios Championship along with Prince Puma & Rey Mysterio. In Season 4, he would defeat Dezmond X and King Cuerno to win the Gift of the Gods Championship.

Both the original Rey Misterio (Miguel Lopez, the uncle of the WWE wrestler) and Konnan introduced the new Rey, who had been wrestling as a prelim wrestler Horus on area shows. He is not related to either Lopez or Oscar Gutierrez, who is the WWE version. Lopez’s real son had done the role and got similar tattoos and contacts as the WWE version and worked a lot of indies in the U.S. and was probably the biggest independent wrestling draw in the U.S. now that El Hijo del Santo rarely comes, but he grew tired of the business.
