Miguel Mendoza, grandson of the
late, great luchadore Enrico "Muerte" Mendoza, was a respected, near-legendary
wrestler in Mexico for close to 2 decades. He began his career at age 17,
where he fought his way up from the infamous "death-style" underground
matches to become a preliminary wrestler in the now-defunct LLWA, fighting
under the name Death Mask. As Death Mask, he attained a small fan-base,
which followed him when he transferred to the AMWO. There, he won the championship
belt on several occasions and became embroiled in a bitter feud with a
larger, less-popular luchadore named Ciclopsis 3000.
Their incredible, near-fatal matches often involved barbed wire and pyrotechnics,
which thrilled the fans to no end and made Death Mask feel right at home.
The rivalry ended when they fought in a "mask vs. mask" bout, leaving Ciclopsis
3000, the shamed loser, no choice but to retire. In 1986, Death Mask was
introduced to the world by his proud grandfather as Muerte Mendoza, Jr.,
the successor to the Mendoza wrestling name. His popularity level shot
to astronomical heights, and his name alone allowed him the opportunity
to tour the world. He fought extensively in Japan and Germany, but his
roots were back home in Mexico. For the next ten years, Mendoza Jr. fought
innumerable opponents and was engaged in numerous plots and rivalries (the
most famous of which was his historic series of fights in AMWO with a masked
Señor Alvarez), until
he inexplicably decided to give up his trade to become a noise musician.
He now incorporates his famous, death-defying lucha libre tactics into
2 Man Projekt.
