The Lucha Brothers, also known as The Lucha Bros., are a professional wrestling tag team consisting of brothers Pentagón Jr. and Fénix. They currently compete in the United States for All Elite Wrestling (AEW), Major League Wrestling, and Impact Wrestling where they are the current Impact Tag Team Champions. In addition, they also wrestle on the American and Mexican independent circuit and have held numerous titles in both countries including the Major League Wrestling World Tag Team Championship, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla Tag Team Championship and The Crash Tag Team Championship. Their real names are not a matter of public record, as is often the case with masked wrestlers in Mexico, where their private lives are kept a secret.

Personal lives[edit]

Pentagón and Fénix are real-life brothers. Their father and another brother are also professional wrestlers; their father worked as Fuego, while their brother performs under the ring name Niño de Fuego.

Professional wrestling career[edit]

Not much is known about the brothers' previous history beyond what has been revealed by themselves, which is traditional in Mexican professional wrestling (Lucha libre).[2] Both Pentagon and Fenix began training in professional wrestling on the same day, and debuted on the same day.[3]
