“One of the most riveting shows on TV.” – Tom Breihan, Slate.com
“A wrestling promotion where the line between fan and fighter is crossed as easily as the ring ropes.” – James Queally, The Los Angeles Times
A world renowned Luchador and movie star, Johnny Mundo came to the Temple as a prize free agent of Dario Cueto. The two had a hard time seeing eye to eye, especially after Johnny punched it. As time went by, Johnny’s obsession with success grew, and this fan favorite turned his back on the Believers as he put Alberto El Patron through the boss’ window. With a new outlook, the future looks bright for the “Prince of Parkour” as he sets his sights on the one thing that has eluded him, the Lucha Underground Championship.
Through the years Pentagon Jr. has exercised his body and mind to learn the mysteries of harmony and combat. He represents a product of painstaking patience and daily battle for a place in the arena. He is a gladiator with elusive killer technique and movements, and anyone who dares to confront him will be attacked from all sides and will succumb to his mastery of the ring. Cero Miedo!
Melissa Santos is a versatile and talented Hispanic actress, model, dancer, host and wrestler from West Covina Ca. She has been performing in front of audiences since the tender age of 10. She was a finalist on Nuestra Belleza Latina 2010 representing Nicaragua and has been featured on multiple series such as “East Los High” Season 2 on the HULU network and “Wow Women of Wrestling” on the CW Las Vegas. You can find her on many local and national commercials as well ranging from Honda and Chevy commercials to to Axe body spray and Budweiser.
