Disco Machine[2][4] ( born Michael Mondragon ) is an American former professional wrestler. He was one of the six founders of the Southern Californian independent promotion, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla.[4][5][6]

Professional wrestling career[edit]

Disco Machine kicked off his wrestling career working for Revolution Pro, a prominent SoCal promotion, in 1998. In 2003, he became one of the six owners of brand new SoCal promotion Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, collectively known as the "PWG Six". In 2005, he teamed with Excalibur, Kevin Steen, and Ronin as the new S.B.S., after he and Excalibur turned on Super Dragon. Disco and Excalibur also provide commentary on most of PWG's DVD releases (along with their occasional partner, TARO). He was featured in a multiple page article about Pro Wrestling Guerrilla in FHM magazine's March 2006 issue.

In 2007, Disco Machine appeared with Wrestling Society X, a short-lived promotion produced and broadcast by MTV, where he teamed with Joey "Magnum" Ryan as "That '70s Team".[1]

Disco Machine retired from wrestling in 2012.
