***A junior at "Burbank High School" 1984 Lemus' nephew had been training during the summer at "Arena Cuatro Caminos" training facility in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Mexico. As a young kid he'd travel with his uncle all over, carrying his uncle’s bag's and learning the traditions of old Lucha Libre, he watched how other luchadores would prep themselves for battle, he learned "Respect, Honor & Responsibility"
As a teen he knew he wanted to be a Luchador, so off he ventured on his own, he did this without consent of his uncle, parents who opposed nephew/son getting involved in the cutthroat business of Lucha Libre (Mexican, Pro Wrestling) When the summer training ended in Mexico, he returned back home to San Antonio, to continue with high school & training, he was trained under the watchful eye of Luchadores "Arandu & El Horoscopo" his godfather was an old time wrestling promoter by the name of "Mad Dog Cruz" (Roberto Solloa) Roberto promoted lucha shows, ran his gym and also recruited young talent at the famed "Arena Valadez" the young student kept training until the end of his senior year, when summer hit he returned back to Nuevo Laredo for more training, some of the older luchadores would tell the uncle that he was "ready to go" with much surprise Uncle Lemus was not aware his young nephew was being trained, the old man was content but would tell the older luchadores to "stretch him" the youngster would never complain, he just wanted to learn and took it like a man, uncle was proud and happy!



(1985)Lemus at Centeno's




**Debut Match & Join The NAVY see the World**

His first wrestling name was "Lemans" & started wearing a black mask with a red "Antifaz" (Stripe) so that people would know he was related to "Lemus I" (Lemus I wore a black mask with gold antifaz)
San Antonio, TX, October 26, 1986, at the now defunct "Arena Valadez" "Lemans" makes his official wrestling debut against veteran "El Yaki" this match was not your regular four star match, it didn’t last long, the old timer would not allow young Lemans to mount any type of defense or showcase any type of skills, in short he took a beating, Yaki was dq'd for taking Lemans mask off!
This match was an “eye opener” he enjoyed the friendships, the knowledge and the brotherhood, to him the business was awesome, Lemans understood that athletes get hurt on a daily basis, he wanted a career in pro wrestling but also wanted an education just in case his wrestling career was cut short due to an injury.

December 1986 Lemans enlists in the US NAVY. Lemans was awarded “Rookie of the year” at the Arena Valadez "End of Year" banquet awards and was also a main stay in Buddy Moreno's USA Pro Wrestling!



My debut match!

While on active duty and stationed in the "bay area" San Francisco he competed in amateur wrestling, during his vacations he'd wrestle professionally. Christmas 1989 (while on leave) Uncle Lemus explained to his nephew that with a new twist and with dues paid, it was time to step up! Old Timer "Sangre Chicana" and uncle saw a youngster being responsible, showing good attitude and willingness to excel, there were many luchadores that lobbied or kissed ass to gain the name Lemus II, as a Christmas present, for all the hard work & dedication the young nephew was given the name Lemus II & even now changed his mask to Black and Gold just like his Uncle.



"Lemans"

****Note: On or around 1984, In Mexico city there was already a Lemus II, this guy was a product of up & coming luchadores out of Nuevo Laredo, so unfortunate, Juan Alvarez was a bad apple who got caught up with the wrong people & made the getaway to Mexico, Lemus I was always bailing him, out of trouble!
While In Mexico he landed a job with Empresa Mexicana De Lucha libre (EMLL) now CMLL & even tried to roll an angle where he was the only Lemus until a wire was sent from Nuevo Laredo to Mexico City & no, he was not the only Lemus, Alvarez was very shady & had a bad attitude. His claim to lucha libre fame was a trios match where he lost his mask.( El Dandy,Fuerza Guerrera, Emilio Charles Vs Vulcano, Lemus II, Tony Arce) after that, no sight, no mention!


In The 70's Andres Richardson used mask & name to become "Lemus" a year later changing the name to "Sangre Chicana" losing the mask to become an iconic figure In Mexican Wrestling. In The 80's Lemus I inherit mask & name to become a very well respected luchador. In The 90's Lemus I gives his young nephew exclusive rights to the name "Lemus II"



Sangre Chicana!!!!!





**The UWA, Discharged From Active Duty**

After being stationed in California, a small stint in "All Pro Wrestling" & experiencing the birth of "Chicano Rap" a major musical influence in who Lemus Dos is today, the next burst of opportunity is in the city of Ingleside, TX(suburb of Corpus Christi) a small town "where everyone knows everyone"

1992… The city of Corpus Christi was notorious for showcasing Live Pro Wrestling at the famed "Yellow Rose" Convention Center. Getting to know the area a young Lemus Dos tries out for the Universal Wrestling Alliance (UWA) a small time promotion run by veteran wrestler "Chuck West" It ran shows twice a month and employed a decent roster, due to Lemus' Lucha skills, West decided he'd make Lemus a "Tecnico" (Good Guy) Lemus II figured that if his mentor "Sangre Chicana" was from Chicago, why not be From L.A, On the night of his first UWA match (1992) He became "Lemus II from East L.A"
It took a while to finally step foot in a UWA ring, true fact Chuck West was fully in charge yet the one that really called the shots was an old timer by the name of "Billy Goelz" Billy was a shooter during the 50's era & could take you out in a heartbeat! Billy had “Cauliflower” ears and plenty of stories to tell, he always sat at the corner & saw everything, moves, reactions, and basically he gave the yes or no!
The Mexican community stood behind Lemus II as a "tecnico" (Face) Chuck West capitalized on a Luchador that was bilingual & personable. Venturing into American wrestling was tough especially during his debut match where the team of "Tsunami Tomayo & Lemus II face "The Badd Boys" Mark Cox & Randy Romance in the months to come & in Alice, TX during an elimination match he becomes UWA JR. hwt Champion, beating "Tsunami Tomayo"



(1992) UWA Jr Champ!



Naval base, Ingleside runs a story in their newspaper.



UWA was a learning experience & Lemus II would go on to have good matches against "Tommy Knight" "Diamond Rocket" “Lightning Mike" San Antonio’s David Cantu's Southwest Championship Wrestling II was also a Hot Spot and a skip across the border into Nuevo Laredo, Mexico this time it wasn't as a student it was as a full-fledged Luchador! Both Lemus I & II officially adopt black masks with red antifaz.
In 1996 He is honorably discharged from the Navy & joins the Naval Reserve!




**Pro Wrestling International, Titles & Good Matches**

In 1998 Los Lemus I & II began to work for "Jose Lothario's PWI (Pro Wrestling International) Jose Lothario did a good job of running the promotion, like many promoters Jose had his favorites, In reality It didn’t matter whether the small (B)list killed themselves (Chief Battu, El Latino Lemus2, Tommy Gunn, Rayo De Tejas, Mombassa, Tito Sanchez) The big guys of the company were always on top & got their way (Bobby Perez, Rudy "Boy" Gonzales, Ken Johnson, Judge Doom, Pete Lothario) As much as Los Lemus gave their 100%, it was always about politics and money, it really didn't matter if the place was packed, the select few "were going to get paid" everything was OK until Shawn Michael's stepped in.

Michael's' vision was to create a wrestling school & invade the small cities yet when it was time to get paid "forget about it" Michael's was very brute in taking care of the boy's & believed everything Rudy Gonzalez & Jose told him!
At one time Michael's began to draw a roster of PWI wrestlers that he'd include in the infamous TWA project Lemus2 & El Latino included, however, again Michael's believed everything Rudy & Jose told him and made sure that the only legit PWI wrestler's they'd keep was "Pete Lothario" and “Ken Johnson”

Despite good crowds, press coverage, favoritism, politics PWI became (TWA) Texas Wrestling Alliance. The TWA was a televised show with its own stars, comprised of the student's, Paul London, Spanky, Bryan Danielson, Shawn Hernandez, Ruben Cruz etc.
The PWI era was filled with plenty of controversy yet a decent run was enjoyed, a notable match was in 1999 "Rudy Boy & Chief Battu" face the team of "Lemus I and II" In the months to come TWA became a novelty it was being televised from” Cowboys Dance Hall” yet Michaels paid for everything and once the project didn’t pay off, Michaels shut down the project, left for WWE and Rudy Gonzalez took over and named the company TWE Texas Wrestling Entertainment.

At the end of 1999, Lemus II becomes part of (UTW) Underground Texas Wrassling & Jack Armstrong’s (STEW) South Texas Extreme Wrestling, where he had caliber matches against; Reno Hall, Eddie Atlas, El Latino, Sicodelico Jr, & Bull Ramos (RIP) months later he takes out Reno Hall to become UTW Champion!

In 2007 PWI resurfaced once AGAIN this time a new roster, a rash of American Wrestling & Lucha Libre, The faction of “Chief Battu & Lemus II” capture PWI Tag Team Titles in a final elimination match against Tommy Gunn & Mr. Muerte!




"Lemus2 & Chief Battu" PWI Tag Team Champions!

In 2009 He captures the PWI US title from "Draven" one month later losing it to "Wallace Gordon" At PWI's 2009 "Slam & Jam" he wins it again, making him 2 time champion!




**Finding A Girl Named Lucha**


You learn how to be a Luchador but end up working the American style of wrestling, what can you say tired of the bullshit politics "The Menace from East L.A" finds his roots & jumps to a smaller time Lucha Libre promotion!
LLM (Lucha Libre Mexicana) run by veteran luchador "Salvaje Anguiano" was home to Lemus II, the truth, it was an ugly beat up promotion, its luchadors didn't know how to work crowds much less grab a microphone & use it properly, the crowds were no more than 20 as for the pay, and you lucky you got ten bucks! So why you ask? Because these guys had heart, they were all about Lucha Libre,even though they didn't understand Psychology, they were serious & dedicated, it was back to basics.

Refresher training with Veteran "El Horoscopo" was awesome, much dedication many 3rd matches and a semi main event on July 2001 "Lemus2 & Super Black" Face the Team of "Avispon and Atrevido" in the Main Event!
For simplistic & easy going, Lemus would gain the respect of all Luchadores because of his good attitude, respect for the business & always wanting to work out, although there are 1 or 2 haters but what can I say only when their drunk they start smack!
Unfortunately there are some Texan luchadores that carry the bad habit of drinking before their shows & then they wonder why they don't draw; really it's due to bad attitude & not wanting to train. They don't understand that in the wrestling business it's all individual effort, what you put into it is what you get out of it!
Mexican lucha mentality is above & beyond, you WILL do things right, no excuse, good attitude is of essence! In 2003 Lemus II won the title from veteran "El Horoscopo" & at the LLM end of year awards, twice has won the "Rudo of the Year" Award!



(2003)LLM Heavyweight Champ!



During his stay at LLM he was also part of Marty Green’s TXW (Texas Extreme Wrestling) In Corpus Christi, TX with a new twist and a different roster Lemus II captured the TXW Light Heavy Weight Title.

Two notable matches in TXW a 3 way dance "Lemus II Vs Jeremy Lopez Vs Don Juan" & the other, tag team match "Jeremy Lopez And Reno Hall" Vs "Lemus II And Chavo Guerrero"





**Texas Wrestling Entertainment, The Jump To Mexico**


In Late 2004 Lemus II is part of (TWE) "Texas Wrestling Entertainment" One of the most important matches in his tenure At TWE was a "Mask Vs Mask" match where he unmasked "El Crazzy"

Meanwhile in he’s a mainstay In "Division Del Norte" in Nuevo Laredo; it took Lemus years to finally wrestle in Mexico & in the big arenas alongside his brother and of course finally "Lemus I & Jr”
A notable match was at the now defunct “Arena Siglo 21” Main Event, Friday July 8, 2005, Lemus II Vs Krazzy Soul Vs Mr Nuclear, in the finals; Lemus II unmasks "Krazzy Soul"








**Putting in some Work**


2006 Mexican American Wrestling, (MAW) is established, this promotion is all about Lucha Libre, every other Friday on Poplar St. more than 200 fans could be seen watching Lucha Libre, MAW brass was all about bringing luchadores from all over Mexico & showcasing the best in Mexican Indy wrestling.

In three occasions he was MAW Champion. Despite political, venue & booking hang ups through the years In 2015 Mexican American Wrestling has established itself as leader of Lucha Libre in SA, CEO Chief Battu has done his best.
On October 19, 2015 Lemus Dos becomes 4 times MAW champion after taking out "Alamo Kid" and "Porky USA" after an elimination match!



"Mexican American Wrestling Champion"



In 2007 Lemus II was scouted by "Texas Wolverine All Stars" to be part of its Lucha Libre Roster, now part of the TWA roster and "PIONEER" of this new company, Lemus would become TWA's most hated “Rudo” he was on the quest to excel and give the fans their money's worth, a year later 2008 Lemus II is crowned TWA Lucha Libre Champion knocking out "Black & White & again in late September taking out "Piloto Suicida" making him 2 time champion, becoming a mainstay in the roster!!

Into 2009 and now TWA American Wrestling, Lemus saw high caliber matches against Vince Vile, Ken Johnson, Draven, Lunar Eclipse (The List Goes On) due to the Old School mentality, good attitude & a willingness to succeed at all costs!

On May 28, 2010 he becomes TWA Champion beating "Alex Drazen" He had awesome matches against Bubba Dumplings, Gabe "The Babe" CJ Xavier, The Smurfs.



(2008)TWA Lucha Libre Champion!



In Feb 2010, Modern Era, Old School Lemus Dos & El Resplandor become "Los Luchas Locos" Tough & Texas Wrestling (TNT)believe in diversity "Los Luchas Locos" are respected & loved by Mexican fans, being the only masked luchadores in TNT! With flashy outfits, they get introduced in Spanish by white boy announcer, front man spokesman "Lemus II" tells it like it is!
On October 15, 2010 "Los Luchas Locos" win The TNT Tag Team titles from El Latino and Kvn Knight!





**Number#1 Midcard Heel, Hitting H-Town**

Three years before as Southern Championship Wrestling (SCW) “The big time” becomes a legit promotion, there was no way a chance that Lemus2 would ever be considered a main stay due to its then brass, the company suffers hardships & as the year 2010 emerges, Don Holding takes command of his company and new faces appear in SCW & the rivalry Between Lemus2 & his brother El Latino becomes a big fixture leading to "CAGEFEST" onto 2011!

Lemus2 becomes SCW's #1 mid card heel, the show of shows & because the company had vision it made Lemus Dos! SCW had a roster of main eventer's "One Man" Mike Dell, ACH, Dick Dallas, Spiro, Franco DeAngelo, Vance Archer, a roster full of dedicated talent, SCW becomes the hottest show every other Saturday, Lemus Dos becomes the only Luchador on the roster & hated by the fans, for always talking ugly smack, he faces tough opposition, Dick Dallas, Bubba Dumplings, The Smurfs & The rivalry between him & his brother leads to a match in early June "Career Vs Career"
Successes in SCW lead to shows in Houston, Tx for Jaivos Wrestling Promotion (JWP) where he defends his JWP Lucha Libre title.
The company has problems with the building and is forced to close down, however on the last show, June 25, 2011 Lemus Dos faces WWF legend The "Honky Tonk Man"











**Refuge & Success on The Road**


Texas Wrestling Federation (TWF) was a step up for Lemus Dos, talk about road trips, classy venues where people pay a ticket, no nonsense, no bullshit, Beeville, Cuero, Lulling, Lockhart, Victoria, Seguin, Alice, Gonzales, San Marcos the list goes on! It was a great ride from one end to another; Lemus Dos became TWF's Number#1 Heel, The fans hated but respected the menace anywhere he went, Lemus Dos ALWAYS came ringside and announced himself in Spanish.
January 1, 2014 in a span of 3 years and 3 times tag team champion, Lemus Dos was a true company man with a drive to excel and a business mindset.
He had awesome matches against Thunder Jett, Alex Drazen, Javier Vega, Ben “New Style” Galvan, Robbie E, El Latino, Vance Archer, Kvn Knight!

TWF’s CEO Jimmy Perez became shady with money, which at the present moment he owes everyone and has garnered a bad reputation.
