Juan Aguilar Leos (born July 31, 1984) is a Mexican luchador, or professional wrestler, best known under the ring name El Texano Jr. Aguilar is the son of Juan Conrado Aguilar Jáuregui, who wrestled under the name El Texano; Aguilar also has several uncles and cousins that are professional wrestlers. Aguilar has mainly worked for the Mexican professional wrestling promotion Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) throughout his career, but has made several tours of Japan for New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) from 2005 until 2007. In November 2011, Aguilar left CMLL to join Perros del Mal Producciones and Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA), where he went on to win the AAA World Heavyweight Championship in December 2012.
Professional wrestling career
Aguilar made his professional wrestling debut in 2001, working as an enmascarado (masked wrestler) under the ring name Kempo Kid. Aguilar worked as the Kempo Kid to gain experience without having the pressure of his father's name. After working as Kempo Kid for approximately 2 years, Aguilar lost a Luchas de Apuestas match, a "bet match" where the loser had to unmask, to Stuka Jr. After being forced to unmask and reveal his name per Lucha Libre traditions he was acknowledged as the son of El Texano and soon after began working as El Texano Jr.
Since he changed his ring name to El Texano Jr. Aguilar has been a regular wrestler for Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL), the world's oldest and Mexico's largest wrestling promotion. From 2005 until 2007 Texano Jr. has also made several tours of Japan, working for New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW), primarily teaming with Lizmark Jr. or Negro Casas. On October 7, 2005 Texano Jr. won his first professional wrestling championship when he teamed up with El Sagrado and Máximo to defeat Pandilla Guerrera (Spanish for "Gang of Warriors"; Sangre Azteca, Doctor X and Nitro) to win the Mexican National Trios Championship. Over the next 569 days Texano Jr., Sagrado and Máximo defended the Trios title against teams such as Danger, Infierno, Magnum; deposed champions Doctor X, Nitro, Sangre Azteca and the team of Arkangel, Doctor X and Misterioso II. On April 29, 2007 the team lost the Mexican National Trios Title to the Los Perros del Mal ("The Evil Dogs") faction of Mr. Águila, Damián 666 and Halloween. The title change was facilitated by El Texano Jr. turning on his partners mid-match, giving Los Perros an easy victory. Not long after turning Rudo (the Lucha Libre term for heel, or villain) Texano Jr. joined Los Perros del Mal and began teaming with El Terrible on a regular basis.
On June 13, 2008 Texano Jr. participated in the main event of CMLL's annual Infierno en el Ring show, a multi-man Steel Cage Match where the last man in the ring would have his hair shaved off. The match involved Los Perros del Mal, represented by Texano Jr. Damián 666, Mr. Águila, El Terrible and Perro Aguayo Jr. while the tecnico (Face or good guys in wrestling) was represented by Alex Koslov, Marco Corleone, Shocker, Negro Casas and Heavy Metal. The match ended up with Texano Jr. and Heavy Metal being the last two in the ring, Texano pinned Heavy Metal forcing him to have his head shaved bald after the match. On August 26, 2008 Texano Jr. and El Terrible defeated Sagrado and Rayman to win the Occidente Tag Team Championship, a regional tag team title defended mainly in Guadalajara. In late 2008 Perros del Mal leader Perro Aguayo Jr. decided to leave CMLL taking with him most of the Perros del Mal group, only El Texano Jr. and El Terrible decided not to leave CMLL.
When Averno and Mephisto formed the group Los Hijos del Averno (The Sons of Hell) both Texano Jr. and El Terrible joined the group. On March 8, 2009 Texano Jr. won his second big "Luchas de Apuestas" match, defeating former team mate Máximo, forcing him to have his head shaved. Texano Jr. continued to be successful as he won his first singles championship, the NWA World Light Heavyweight Championship from Atlantis on April 5, 2009. Holding the NWA Light Heavyweight Championship qualified Texano Jr. for the "CMLL Universal Championship" tournament, a single elimination tournament for all male CMLL endorsed champions. El Texano Jr. won block A on June 5 defeating El Hijo del Fantasma (CMLL World Trios Champion), Black Warrior (Mexican National Trios Champion) and La Sombra (CMLL World Tag Team Champion) to qualify for the final. Texano Jr. was defeated by Último Guerrero in the finals of the tournament on June 19, 2009. On July 24, 2009 El Texano Jr. made his first successful NWA World Light Heavyweight Title defense, defeating former champion Shocker. In the fall of 2009 Texano Jr. and El Terrible became involved in a long running "Mexico vs. Japan" storyline that had been going on since the summer as they began working with the Japanese duo No Limit (Yujiro and Naito). On December 4, 2009 Terrible and Texano Jr. defeated No Limit in a Luchas de Apuesta hair vs. hair match that was the main event of CMLL's Sin Salida show. After the match both members of No Limit had their heads shaved completely bald per Lucha libre traditions. On February 14, 2010 Texano Jr. and Terrible travelled to Japan to challenge No Limit for the IWGP Tag Team Championship, but were not able to defeat No Limit in their home country. By virtue of holding the NWA World Light Heavyweight Championship El Texano Jr. participated in the 2010 Universal Championship tournament. He was part of "Block A" that competed on the July 30, 2010 Super Viernes show. He co-won the eight-man seeding battle royal, and then won his first round match by defeating Ephesto. The second round was a rematch from the previous year's tournament, only this time La Sombra eliminated El Texano Jr. and not vice versa. On August 12, 2010, El Texano Jr.'s NWA World Light Heavyweight Championship was replaced with the new NWA World Historic Light Heavyweight Championship. In October and November 2010, El Texano Jr. and El Terrible took part in New Japan's 2010 G1 Tag League. After victories over Takashi Iizuka and Toru Yano and No Limit, Texano Jr. and Terrible finished fifth in their block and didn't advance to the semifinals of the tournament. On December 14, 2010, El Texano Jr. lost the NWA World Historic Light Heavyweight Championship to Shocker. In April 2011, Texano Jr. and El Terrible left Los Hijos del Averno to form a new group with Rey Bucanero. The following month, the group was named La Fuerza TRT.
On November 22 it was reported that El Texano Jr. had left CMLL and joined Perros del Mal Producciones. On November 24, El Texano Jr. appeared at a press conference, where he was officially presented as the newest member of the promotion, appearing alongside his brother Super Nova, who also works for the promotion. On December 8, El Texano Jr. and Toscano appeared at another press conference, where it was announced that they were also joining CMLL's rival promotion Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA). Later that day at an International Wrestling Revolution Group (IWRG) event, both El Texano Jr. and Super Nova joined the Perros del Mal stable. El Texano Jr. made his AAA debut on December 16 at Guerra de Titanes, forming the stable El Consejo ("The Council") with former CMLL workers Toscano and Máscara Año 2000 Jr. On January 21, 2012, Mortiz and Semental joined El Consejo, which quickly established itself as a force opposing both tecnicos and rudos of AAA. On February 10, El Consejo was joined by Argos. El Consejo's first big match in AAA took place on March 18 at Rey de Reyes, where El Texano Jr., Máscara Año 2000 Jr. and Toscano defeated AAA representatives Dr. Wagner Jr., Electroshock and Heavy Metal, following interference from the stable's newest member, El Hombre de Negro. On May 19, El Texano Jr., Máscara Año 2000 Jr. and Toscano defeated Los Psycho Circus (Monster Clown, Murder Clown and Psycho Clown), following another interference from El Hombre de Negro, to win the AAA World Trios Championship. On June 16, El Hombre de Negro unmasked and revealed himself as Máscara Año 2000. On October 7 at Héroes Inmortales, El Texano Jr. won the sixth annual Copa Antonio Peña, scoring the last elimination over AAA World Heavyweight Champion El Mesías. However, afterwards the cup was taken away from El Texano Jr. when referee Copetes Salazar found out that he had eliminated El Mesías after a low blow. With a shot at the AAA World Heavyweight Championship in his future, El Texano Jr. formed an alliance with Dorian Roldán, bringing El Consejo under the umbrella of his La Sociedad stable.
On December 2 at Guerra de Titanes, El Texano Jr. defeated El Mesías to become the youngest AAA World Heavyweight Champion in history. On February 18, 2013, El Consejo lost the AAA World Trios Championship back to Los Psycho Circus, when Toscano turned on El Texano Jr. On March 17 at Rey de Reyes, El Texano Jr. successfully defended the AAA World Heavyweight Championship against Blue Demon Jr., who afterwards challenged him to a Mask vs. Hair Lucha de Apuestas. On June 16 at Triplemanía XXI, El Texano Jr. successfully defended his title against Heavy Metal. On September 3, El Texano Jr. became the longest reigning AAA World Heavweight Champion in its history, shattering Jeff Jarrett's record of 274 days. On June 7, 2014, at Verano de Escándalo, El Texano Jr. successfully defended the title against Psycho Clown, after former CMLL referee Rafael el Maya turned rudo and joined El Consejo. The rivalry between El Texano Jr. and Psycho Clown culminated on August 17 at Triplemanía XXII, where Psycho Clown was victorious in a Lucha de Apuestas between the two, forcing his rival to have his head shaved. After a two-year reign, El Texano Jr. lost the AAA World Heavyweight Championship to El Patrón Alberto on December 7, 2014, at Guerra de Titanes, ending his record 735-day reign..
