Incognito is the ring name of a Hispanic Luchador enmascarado, or masked professional wrestler, who is currently signed by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) under a development deal. Incognition has mainly worked for the professional wrestling promotion Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) in Mexico and Chikara in the US as well as working for various independent promoters along the US/Mexico border. Incognito originally wrestled under the name "Místico", making his debut under that name around the same time as the much more well known Místico of Mexico City. At times he is billed as either "Mystico" or "Mistico de Juarez". Incognito's 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

Born to Spanish immigrant parents in El Paso, Texas the wrestler who would later be known as Incognito began wrestling in Burges High School where he was an accomplished state champion multiple times. He then embarked onto a professional career, as he managed to continue working for his families funeral home and Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico in the early 2000s under the ring name "Mistico". This masked ring persona may or may not have preceded the debut of Místico in Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) around the same time period, but CMLL won the legal rights to the name "Místico" some time in 2005, forcing the Juarez version to change his name to "Mystico" or "Mistico de Juarez".[4] On February 2, 2004 he defeated Nicho El Millario to win the WWA Middleweight Championship but was stripped of the title in March when he had to stop wrestling in the Tijuana, Baja California area where the World Wrestling Association was based.[5]

Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (2004-2005)

In early 2004 he began working regularly for Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA), CMLL's main Mexican rival and had to change his name in order to avoid any type of legal problems. With minor adjustments to his mask and tights Mystico became known as "Incognito" instead, adopting the name he is best known as today.[6] While he was signed to AAA for over a year Incognito made few wrestling appearances, spending most of his time training in AAA's school to improve his wrestling skills. By 2005 he had left AAA and began working for various independent wrestling promotions on both sides of the US/Mexico border, exploiting the fact that he was a US citizen and spoke English well to get more bookings in the US than most Luchadors would be able to do.

Total Nonstop Action (2006)

Incognito first made a name for himself in the United States when he participated in the 2006 edition of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling's (TNA) World X-Cup Tournament. Incognito formed Team Mexico along with Shocker, Magno and Puma. Incognito's only match in the World Cup tournament was a 16-man Gauntlet match that included all four World Cup teams. [7] Incognito was eliminated by Sonjay Dutt. In the end Team Mexico ended up in third place, behind winners Team USA and Team Canada but ahead of Team Japan.[8]

Following his appearance for TNA Incognito began working regularly for the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), often teaming with fellow Luchador Sicodélico, Jr.. The two participated in a tournament to crown new NWA World Tag Team Champions, but lost to Joey Ryan and Karl Anderson in the final match, a match that also included Billy Kidman and Sean Waltman.[9]

Chikara Pro (2007-2008)

On September 22, 2007 Incognito made his first appearance for the Lucha Libre inspired Chikara Pro promotion when he participated in their annual 16-man Torneo cibernetico tournament. Incognito was part of an eight-man team consisting only of masked wrestlers (Equinox, Las Chivas Rayadas Lince Dorado, Los Ice Creams and Magno). The team lost to the Kings of Wrestling.[10] Incognito returned to Chikara in 2008 for a series of appearances. He teamed with El Pantera and Lince Dorada to form the team Los Luchadors de Mexico (Spanish for "the Wrestlers from Mexico") winning Chikara's 32-team King of Trios 2008 tournament when they defeated BLKOUT (Eddie Kingston, Joker and Ruckus) in the finals.[1][11] Incognito went on to win the 2008 Rey de Voladores ("King of the Fliers") tournament when he defeated Helios in the finals on May 18, 2008.[1][12]

In April, 2009 Incognito made two appearances for Ring of Honor, working on the same shows where his friend Blue Demon, Jr. worked. On April 3 he teamed with Chris Hero and Eddie Edwards to defeat Jay Briscoe, Kevin Steen and Magno and on April 4 he teamed with Hero, Edwards and Davey Richards in a loss to El Generico, Steen, Briscoe and Magno.[13][14]

World Wrestling Entertainment (2009-current)

On December 14, 2009 Incognito worked a "try out" match for World Wrestling Entertainment working without a mask, under the name Jorge Arias. Incognito worked a tag team match but never entered the ring during the match. Shortly after Incognito signed a developmental deal with WWE following his try out match and is scheduled to start in WWE's Farm League Florida Championship Wrestling.[15] His ring name is now Hunico.[16]
