A New Mascara Año 2000 Jr. in Mexico
Per Super Luchas, Mascara Año 2000 has decided for a new wrestler to play Mascara Año 2000 Jr:
Jesús Reyes, better known as Mascara Año 2000, announced that there will be a new luchador who will play Mascara Año 2000 Jr. since the previous gladiator stopped paying the character’s rent.
Despite the fact that in 2006 the Son of Mascara Año2000 and Mascara Año 2000 Jr. appeared, the latter does not have a family connection with Chucho Reyes, since both rented the name they were using until this 2020.
In an interview with Más Lucha, the father of more than 20, indicated that he would give the name and image to a new 29-year-old luchador, who would carry the masked character, although he is not the son or family member of Jesús Reyes, although he is someone he knows and from whom he has followed his career.
“He is my great idol since I can remember I like wrestling and I have always followed his career … I have great admiration and respect for him … It is the most beautiful thing that has happened to me,” said the member of the Dinamita family.
In order for the name to reach the hands of this new fighter, Máscara Año 2000 asked that he have a university career, which the young gladiator fulfilled and graduated in Law. For this reason, Jesús Reyes kept his word and gave the name.
In this way, it was reported that from now on he is the only fighter authorized to carry the character.
“The previous Mascara Año 2000 Jr. is not my relative, for a time he rented my name, but when he lost the mask he no longer wanted to pay, since I am not a person of problems I let him fight … But now this young man is the one who He has permission to fight as Mascara Año 2000 Jr. In the case of the Hijo de Mascara Año 2000 he is the son of my sister and is the brother of Outsider, he has my permission from the beginning. “
While many families depend on the successor of the family to continue a character, as is the case with icons like El Hijo del Santo and Blue Demon Jr., is not uncommon to see wrestlers renting their masks and legacy. The family of Mascara Año is the iconic Reyes family, which includes Los Hermanos Dinamitas, Cien Caras, and Universo 2000. In Lucha de Apuestas, he had beaten Pirata Morgan, Anibal, and Carlos Plata.
