Jesús Luna Pozos (born February 18, 1975) is a Mexican luchador (professional wrestler) who is best known in under the ring name Charly Manson. He currently works for the Los Perros del Mal promotion in Mexico as a face (good guy, referred to as técnico in Mexico). Manson's gimmick is very much inspired by Marilyn Manson's look and general persona.

In 2001 Manson suffered a career-threatening, near-fatal injury that required surgical steel to be inserted into his body. In 2008 Manson suffered an injury to the same region once more, bending the surgical steel. Manson recently made his return to AAA after being out of action for over 10 months.


Professional wrestling career

Pozos was trained for his pro wrestling career by Hombre Bala (Aurelio Ortiz Villavicencio, the current Monsther) and made his debut in October 1990. He started out as an Enmascarado (masked wrestler) known as Jim Kata. He would later work under names such as Dinamita Luna (Spanish for "Dynamite Moon"), El Cazador and Brujería (Spanish for "Witchcraft") but none of the gimmicks were successful for Pozos.

Asistencia Asesoría y Administración

March 10, 1998 Pozos made his debut for Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) where he adopted the gimmick of Charly Manson, playing upon the look and personality of American musician Marilyn Manson complete with white facepaint, clothes and entrance music (Manson's Rock is Dead). Manson was chosen to be one of the original members of the Stable called Los Vatos Locos (Spanish for "The Crazy Guys") alongside Picudo, Nygma and May Flowers. Los Vatos immediately started a feud (storlyine) with another AAA based stable known as Los Vipers and had many 4 on 4, or "Atómicos", tag matches. On February 14, 1999 Los Vatos Locos defeated the Los Vipers team of Histeria, Maniaco, Mosco de la Merced and Psicosis II to win the Mexican National Atómicos Championship.[2] Their first run with the Atómicos title was short lived as they were defeated by Los Juniors (Blue Demon, Jr., La Parka, Jr., Mascara Sagrada, Jr. and Perro Aguayo, Jr.) only 63 days later.[2] Before 1999 was up they had the Atómicos championship once again having defeated Los Vipers for the gold once again.[2] Their second run would last 127 days before they lost the titles back to Los Vipers on April 15, 2000.

Shortly after losing the Atómicos Championship Charly Manson left Los Vatos Locos to found his own stable called the Black Family. The Black Family initially featured Chessman, Escoria and Cuervo and was soon joined by Ozz, all of whom shared Manson's Goth-inspired look. On March 30, 2001 Manson suffered a career threatening injury that almost took his life. during a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match Manson was pushed off a ladder to the floor. The plan was that he would have his fall broken by a stack of tables but unfortunately the tables were not close enough and Manson dropped directly onto the concrete floor. The impact broke his femur and gave him a hard blow to the head. The Femur had to be strengthened by a surgical steel plate.[3] In late 2001 Charly Manson returned to the promotion, while still not fully recovered, and began a war of words with the Black Family as Chessman had taken over his leadership role in Manson's absence. Manson displayed a much more cautious ring style after his return, having never taken part in another ladder match since then.

International Wrestling Revolution Group

When Charly Manson was finally cleared to return to the ring, he did not return to AAA but instead began working for another Mexican promotion called International Wrestling Revolution Group (IWRG). Manson announced that he, his brother Electroshock and Pentagón Black was the New Black Family denouncing the group that Chessman led. The group soon disintegrated as Electo Shock returned to AAA. Manson's only real feud in IWRG was with a wrestler known as "Ultimo Vampiro" (Spanish for "the Last Vampire")

Return to AAA

When Manson reappered in AAA in September 2002 he did not side with the Black Family but instead sided with their long time enemies, Los Vipers. Los Vipers had been made a part of the "Super Group" Lucha Libre Latina (AAA's version of the New World Order), a group that also included Manson's brother Electroshock; the two siblings had a falling out over Electo Shock's relationship with Lady Apache (who was his wife in real life). The feud between the brothers led to a "retirement match" at Triplemania XIV. Manson won the match but Lady Apache pleaded with him to not force Electroshock to retire but instead shave her hair off as "payment". After some consideration Manson accepted and shaved her hair off, with Electo Shock voluntarily shaving his own hair off in sympathy.[4]

La Secta Cibernetica

In 2005 Charly Manson finally rose to the top of the roster in AAA as he was one of the "illuminati" behind the creation of La Secta Cibernetica (Spanish for "the Sect of Cybernetico") led by Manson's long time friend Cibernético. The group was joined by Chessman and the rest of the Black Family to form what would become the main rudo (heel) stable of AAA at the time. Its (kayfabe) goal was to take over AAA and drive owner Antonio Peña out of power. The storyline saw the group face a number of "AAA Loyal" técnicos led by La Parka (the AAA version, not L.A. Park). The feud developed into a Luchas de Apuestas (literally "a fight of bets") where Cibernético put his mask on the line against La Parka's mask; the main event of TripleMania XII saw La Parka unmask Cibernético after defeating him.[4] When Cibernético subsequently brought in Muerta Cibernetica (Spanish for "Death Cyborg") to fight La Parka, Manson and Chessman both had their misgivings but decided to trust Cibernético's decision. When Cibernético suffered a long term injury Muerta Cibernetica stepped in and took control of the group, going so far as to attack the injured Cibernético during an in-ring confrontation. When Muerta Cibernetica took over control of the group Manson decided to leave the group and rejoin Los Vipers, now known as Viper's Revolution.

Los Hell Brothers

On November 18, 2006 Cibernético returned from his knee injury and founded a new stable, Los Hell Brothers, consisting of him, Charly Manson and Chessman since Manson and Chessman had been the only ones loyal enough to leave La Secta when Muerta Cibernetica took over control. The three instantly became the top técnico group in AAA as they waged war with La Secta del Mesias (as it had been renamed) and the newly formed La Legión Extranjera, a faction of non-Mexican talent led by Konnan. In late 2007 Charly Manson won the first ever Copa Antonio Peña, a 13-man Gauntlet style tournament held during the first ever Antonio Peña Memorial Show. Manson defeated Alan Stone, Scott Hall and Konnan to claim the cup.[5] On May 18, 2008 Manson reinjured his old Femur injury during a match in Reynosa, Mexico. Manson was thrown into the guardrail surrounding the ring with such force that it bent the steel plate that had been inserted in 2001. The impact reinjured the femur and bruised several ribs. The injury meant that the old steel plate, which was bent more than 20 degrees, had to be removed and a new plate with double the thickness inserted in its place.[3] While still injured Manson made a few appearances to further the building storyline between Cibernético and Chessman where both demanded that he picked a side. When Manson refused, stating that he was friends with both, Los Hell Brothers disintegrated as Chessman attacked Cibernético.

Return from injury and feuds with El Zorro and Chessman

AAA paid Manson the entire 10 months he was out with an injury, which was why rumors of Manson's jump to the Perros del Mal promotion caused some raised eyebrows. [6] Los Perros del Mal even held a press conference to announce that he had signed with the company.[7] In the end it appeared that either the rumors and the press conference were part of a major angle, or that Manson changed his mind before signing a contract as he returned to AAA in February.[8] Manson returned to the ring on February 15, 2009 during a television taping to help El Mesias as he was being attacked by Konnan and La Legión.[9][10] Three days later at another television taping Manson made his in ring return, teaming with Latin Lover and X-Pac to defeat Konnan, Electroshock & El Zorro.[10] On March 15, 2009 at the 2009 Rey de Reyes Manson teamed with D-Generation-Mex members X-Pac and Alex Koslov in a losing effort against El Zorro, Teddy Hart and Jack Evans, after which Juventud Guerrera made his return to the promotion to help the faces out.[11] The storyline with El Zorro concluded at Triplemania XVII where Manson, X-Pac and Rocky Romero defeated El Zorro, Dark Ozz and Dark Scoria.[12] In the summer of 2009 the storyline between Chessman and Charly Manso that had been brewing since Manson's return in the spring finally started to build, the two faced off in several tag team matches, leading into their first one on one match at the 2009 Verano de Escandalo event. The two faced off in a Streetfight that saw Charly Manson win by submission.[13] Manson and Chessman were scheduled to face off in a Luchas de Apuesta in the main event of AAA's Heroes Inmortales III.[14] In the week leading up to the event Manson announced that he had left AAA and would not be participating in the match. On the Mexican wrestling program Tercera Caída Manson stated that he left AAA because he was not given enough dates to earn a living and unlike the non-Mexican AAA workers he did not have a guaranteed contract. He also stated that he was not offered enough money to lose to Chessman, revealing that the original ending to Manson vs. Chessman was for Chessman to win.[15] On September 24, 2009 AAA, through Marisela Peña and Joaquín Roldan, confirmed that Charly Manson had indeed left AAA.[16]

Perros del Mal and independet circuit

Following Manson's depature from AAA it was announced that he would be joining Los Perros del Mal, a Mexican independent promotion, working against the Los Perros del Mal stable.[17] After not defending the Mexican National Heavyweight Championship since September, 2009 Manson successfully defended the title against Mascara Año 2000, Jr. on December 5, 2009 making the Mexican National Heavyweight title active again after three years.[18] On February 21, 2010 at the Perros del Mal event "La Revolucion" Manson lost the Mexican National Heavyweight Title to X-Fly.[19]
