Jesús Reyes González (born March 10, 1958) is a Mexican Luchador, or professional wrestler, best known under the ring name Máscara Año 2000 or Máscara Año Dos Mil. His ring name is Spanish for "Mask of the year 2000", originally referring to the mask Reyes wore while wrestling. Reyes was forced to unmask when he lost a Lucha de Apuesta (bet match) to Perro Aguayo in 1993. Throughout his career Reyes has often teamed with his two brothers Carmelo, who wrestles as Cien Caras and Andrés, who wrestles as Universo 2000, the three are collectively known as Los Hermanos Diniamita ("The Dynamite Brothers") or Los Capos ("The Bosses") when they team with Apolo Dantés.[4] Reyes has earned the nickname "El Padre de más de 20" ("Father of more than 20") by wrestling commentators even though he does not quite have 20 children.[5]

Professional wrestling career[edit]

Jesús Reyes was the second of the Reyes brothers to take up professional wrestling, making his debut in 1977, only a few years after huis older brother Carmelo Reyes González who wrestled under the ring name "Cien Caras".[4] Reyes took the name Titán, an enmascarado, or masked, ring character. He would later change his ring name to "Máscara Año 2000", "The Mask of the year 2000", a name he would be best known under.[4]

Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre[edit]

Both Reyes brothers worked regularly for Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre (EMLL) from the early 1980s and they also brought in their younger brother who worked as Universo 2000 to form a trio billed as Los Hermanos Dinamita ("The Dynamite Brothers"). On April 16, 1986 Máscara Año 2000 and Cien Caras defeated Rayo de Jalisco and Tony Benetto to win the Mexican National Tag Team Championship.[6] They held and successfully defended the title for almost a year before losing it to Los Infernales (MS-1 and Masakre) on March 26, 1987.[6] Universo 2000 was originally chosen to be the wrestler to unmask the legendary Aníbal, who had returned for the big payday a mask loss is. But during the buildup promoter Benjamin Mora, who was bitter at EMLL for not working with him, revealed several of EMLL's plans including who was going to unmask Aníbal. CMLL decided to change their plans and in the end it was Máscara Año 2000, that was given the victory over Aníbal.[7] In late 1990-early 1991 EMLL changed their name to Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL). On August 11, 1991 Los Hermanos Dinamita won the Mexican National Trios Championship when they defeated Los Movie Stars (Atlantis, Máscara Sagrada and Octagón) to win the title.[8]

Asistencia Asesoría y Administración[edit]

In mid-1992 then CMLL booker Antonio Peña decided to break away from the promotion and form his own promotion called Asistencia Asesoría y Administración, wanting to produce his own style of wrestling shows that differed from the very conservative way CMLL ran things.[9] Among the people that left CMLL to join AAA were the Reyes brothers, who took the Mexican National Trios title with them, this was made possible by the fact that CMLL did not outright own the championship but were given the rights to book the championship by the Mexico City Boxing and Wrestling Commission who actually owned all of the Mexican National wrestling championship. The Commission allowed Peña's promotion to take control of the titles after its creation in 1992.[8] Máscara Año 2000 had begun a feud with Perro Aguayo while both still worked for CMLL and the storyline tension between the two continued as they both jumped to AAA. The two faced off in the semi-main event of the first ever Triplemanía in a Lucha de Apuesta, mask vs. hair match. The show saw Aguayo defeat his longtime rival to unmask him.[3] Los Hermanos Dinamita held the trios championship until July, 1993 when Los Infernales (Satánico, Pirata Morgan and MS-1) defeated them.[8] Los Hermanos Dinamita regained the belts in late 1993 or very early 1994 by defeating Los Infernales.[8] In the spring of 1994 Los Hermanos Dinamita began a feud with the Rudo (bad guy) trio Los Payasos, a trio of masked "evil clowns" (Coco Rojo, Coco Verde and Coco Amarillo) who underneath the clown costumes were very accomplished wrestlers. The two trios met in a match at Triplemanía II-A on April 24, 1994 where Los Payasos won the Trios title from Los Hermanos Dinamita.[10] A few weeks later, at Triplemanía II-C Los Hermanos Dinamita gained a measure of revenge when they defeated Los Payasos in a Steel Cage Match.[11] One of Universo 2000's last matches in AAA took place at Triplemanía III-C where Los Hermanos Dinamita teamed up with Jerry Estrada and Fishman to defeat Konnan, La Parka, Máscara Sagrada, Latin Lover and Perro Aguayo.[12]

Return to CMLL[edit]

By mid-1996 Los Hermanos left AAA and returned to CMLL where they would become regular competitors for the next decade. The trio began working regularly with Apolo Dantés, forming a group called Los Capos ("The Bosses"), a rudo group that were heavily featured in CMLL's heavyweight division. Around 2000 Los Capos began a long running feud with Perro Aguayo, a storyline that would later include Aguayo's son Perro Aguayo, Jr. as well. On March 30, 2001, in the main event of CMLL's Juicio Final, Universo 2000 faced Aguayo in a Lucha de Apuesta match where Aguayo risked his hair and Universo 2000 risked his mask. Universo 2000 won, with a little help from Los Capos, and shaved Aguayo bald after the match. Four years later Aguayo and his son defeated Cien Caras and Máscara Año 2000 in a Lucha de Apuesta, hair vs. hair match, in what turned out to be the last headline match of the feud between the Reyes and the Aguaryo families.[13] Máscara Año 2000 remained with CMLL until some point in 2007 or 2008 where he left the promotion and began working on the independent circuit.

Los Invasores and independent circuit[edit]

Main article: Los Invasores

Máscara Año 2000 currently wrestles select dates on the independent circuit, occasional appearances for International Wrestling Revolution Group (IWRG), often teaming with his brother Universo 2000 or his sons Máscara Año 2000, Jr. and El Hijo de Máscara Año 2000. On May 10, 2010, during a match between Los Independientes and CMLL wrestlers, Máscara Año 2000 and Universo 2000 ran in to help Los Independientes beat up on their opponents. The two sided with Los Independientes (Later renamed Los Invasores) in the storyline between independent wrestlers and CMLL.[14][15]

Return to AAA[edit]

On March 11, 2012, Máscara Año 2000 made his return to AAA, working as the masked "El Hombre de Negro", an accomplice of the rudo stable El Consejo, which also included his son Máscara Año 2000, Jr.[16] After months of helping members of El Consejo win matches, including one for the AAA World Trios Championship, El Hombre de Negro unmasked and revealed his true identity on June 16.[2] On August 5 at Triplemanía XX, Máscara Año 2000 accompanied his son to a match, where he lost his mask to Dr. Wagner, Jr.[17]

The Reyes wrestling family[edit]

Jesús Reyes González Reyes is the second youngest of the Reyes brothers to turn professional, his older brother Carmelo Reyes González wrestled as "Cien Caras" for many years and retired in 2005. His younger brother Andrés Reyes wrestles as Universo 2000 and two of his sons wrestle as Máscara Año 2000, Jr. and El Hijo de Máscara Año 2000.[4] Despite using the names El Hijo de Cien Caras ("The Son of Cien Caras") and Cien Caras, Jr. neither wrestler actually are related to the Reyes family but have paid them for the rights to use the ring characters and masks.[5] The Mini-Estrella Pequeño Universo 2000 is also not a Reyes family member but a Mini who was allowed to use the name and mask some years ago when Universo 2000 still wrestled in CMLL and continues to use the character to this date.[5] Máscara Año 2000 is nicknamed "The father of more than 20", although it's not certain if that name has any hold in real life.[5]
