William Arturo Muñoz González (born September 29, 1988) is a Mexican luchador or professional wrestler, better known by the ring name Rush. Muñoz's father Arturo Muñoz is also a professional wrestler, currently working for CMLL under the ring name Pierroth, while two of his brothers also currently work for the promotion under masks and the ring names Místico and Dragon Lee.

After originally starting his career in 2007, working for various independent promotions under the ring name Latino, Muñoz was signed by Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) in 2009 and given the ring name he currently performs under. Working as Rush, he is a former CMLL World Light Heavyweight Champion, CMLL World Tag Team Champion, CMLL World Trios Champion and two-time Mexican National Trios Champion.

Personal life[edit]

William Arturo Muñoz González was born on September 29, 1988, in Tala, Jalisco, Mexico, the oldest son of Arturo Muñoz Sánchez, a luchador, or professional wrestler, who is best known under the ring names "Toro Blanco" and "Comandante Pierroth".[6] William Muñoz has at least two younger brothers who also became professional wrestlers, Carlos (born 1991) better known as the second Místico and Dragon Lee (born 1995, first name not confirmed).[7][8]

Professional wrestling career[edit]

International Wrestling Revolution Group (2008–2009)[edit]

Muñoz made his debut for International Wrestling Revolution Group (IWRG) in October 2008, performing under the ring name Latino.[4] He would wrestle midcard matches for IWRG for eight months, before making his final appearance on June 7, 2009.[9]

Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre[edit]

Early years (2009–2011)[edit]

During the summer of 2009, Muñoz was signed by one of Mexico's top promotions, Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL), and given the new ring name Rouge, which was soon afterwards tweaked to its current form, Rush. He would make his debut for the promotion on August 9, teaming with Mictlán and Stuka Jr. to defeat Hooligan, Loco Max and Pólvora in a six-man tag team match.[10] Rush would spend his first year in the promotion wrestling tag team and six-man tag team matches, often teaming with Máximo, Mictlán, Metro and Toscano. Despite being booked as a técnico (fan favorite), Rush would often show rudo (villainous) tendencies during his matches.[11] During the summer of 2010, Rush entered a feud with Loco Max, which culminated on August 15 in a Hair vs. Hair Lucha de Apuestas match, where Rush was victorious, thus forcing his adversary to have his hair shaved off.[12] On November 25, Rush won CMLL's Bodybuilding Contest in the advanced category.[13] With his win, Rush gained the new nickname "Mr. CMLL".[11] On January 2, 2011, Rush, Ángel de Oro and Diamante defeated Metal Blanco, Palacio Negro and El Sagrado in the finals of a two-week-long tournament to become the number one contenders to the Mexican National Trios Championship.[14] On January 9, the trio defeated Delta, Metro and Stuka Jr. to become the new champions.[15] On February 15, Rush teamed with Máscara Dorada and La Sombra against the team of Averno, Dragón Rojo Jr. and Ephesto and managed to win the match for his team by pinning the CMLL World Light Heavyweight Champion Ephesto, afterwards challenging him to a match for the title.[16] The title match took place on February 22 and saw Rush defeat Ephesto to become the new CMLL World Light Heavyweight Champion.[17][18] In response to the backlash over his sudden push, Rush acknowledged his many detractors by posting a list of the various moves he could do in the ring, while also promoting his youth, strength and physique.[19] After successfully defending the CMLL World Light Heavyweight Championship against Rey Bucanero and Psicosis, Rush was granted a shot at the CMLL World Heavyweight Championship, held by Último Guerrero.[20][21] The title match took place on June 12 and saw Guerrero retain his title two falls to one.[22][23] Afterwards, Rush began feuding with Japanese wrestler Yoshihashi, which led to the two agreeing to face each other in a Hair vs. Hair Lucha de Apuestas.[24][25] On August 1, Rush defeated Yoshihashi two falls to one to win his second Hair vs. Hair match.[26][27] On August 23, Rush made his third successful defense of the CMLL World Light Heavyweight Championship by defeating Mr. Águila.[28] On September 20, Rush, Ángel de Oro and Diamante lost the Mexican National Trios Championship to Los Invasores (Olímpico, Psicosis and Volador Jr.).[29]

El Bufete del Amor (2011–2013)[edit]

On November 13, Rush successfully defended the CMLL World Light Heavyweight Championship against El Terrible.[30] The following month, Rush teamed up with Máximo and the returning Marco Corleone to form La Tercia Sensación,[31] later renamed El Bufete del Amor.[32] On December 25, Rush and El Terrible survived a torneo cibernetico match used to determine the two competitors in a match for the vacant CMLL World Heavyweight Championship.[33] On January 1, 2012, El Terrible defeated Rush two falls to one to win the CMLL World Heavyweight Championship.[34] On January 21 and 22, Rush took part in the CMLL and New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) co-produced Fantastica Mania 2012 events in Tokyo, teaming with Máscara Dorada losing to the team of Hirooki Goto and Kushida on the first night and losing to Goto in a singles match on the second night.[35][36] On February 19, El Bufete del Amor defeated Los Hijos del Averno (Averno, Ephesto and Mephisto) to win the CMLL World Trios Championship.[37] Also in February, Rush teamed with El Terrible in the National Parejas Increibles tournament, where teams were made up of rivals. Rush and El Terrible eventually made it to the finals of the tournament on March 2, 2012 at Homenaje a Dos Leyendas, where they were defeated by the team of Atlantis and Mr. Niebla.[38] Two days later, Rush successfully defended the CMLL World Light Heavyweight Championship against El Terrible, the reigning CMLL World Heavyweight Champion.[39] In May, Rush started feuding with New Japan Pro Wrestling representative Yujiro Takahashi, which built to a match on June 5, where Rush successfully defended the CMLL World Light Heavyweight Championship against his rival.[40] On July 8, New Japan Pro Wrestling announced Rush as a participant in the 2012 G1 Climax tournament.[41] Rush returned to the promotion on July 29 at Last Rebellion, where he, Karl Anderson, MVP and Shelton Benjamin defeated Suzuki-gun (Minoru Suzuki, Lance Archer, Taichi and Taka Michinoku) in an eight-man tag team match.[42] Rush opened his G1 Climax tournament on August 1 with a win over Hirooki Goto, avenging his loss from Fantastica Mania.[43] After three wins, one over IWGP Heavyweight Championship contender Tetsuya Naito,[44] and five losses, Rush was eliminated from the tournament on August 11,[45] eventually finishing last in his block.[46] Upon Rush's return to CMLL, he continued his rivalry with El Terrible going into the 2012 Universal Championship tournament, where he made it to the finals of his block, before losing to El Terrible, after which he was attacked by both El Terrible and his stablemate Rey Bucanero.[47][48] On September 9, Rush defeated Bucanero in a steel cage match to retain the CMLL World Light Heavyweight Championship.[49] Rush's rivalry with El Terrible culminated five days later in the main event of CMLL's 79th Anniversary Show, where Rush was victorious in a Hair vs. Hair Lucha de Apuestas, forcing his rival to have his head shaved.[50][51]

On November 11, NJPW announced that Rush and Diamante Azul would team up under the name CMLL Asesino (CMLL Assassins) for the 2012 World Tag League, that takes place from November 20 through December 2.[52][53] Rush and Diamante ended the tournament on November 28, 2012 with just four points after victories over Tencozy (Hiroyoshi Tenzan and Satoshi Kojima) and Complete Players (Masato Tanaka and Yujiro Takahashi),[54][55] finishing in the last place in Group B, after losses to the teams of Chaos (Takashi Iizuka and Toru Yano),[56] K.E.S. (Lance Archer and Davey Boy Smith Jr.),[57] Muscle Orchestra (Manabu Nakanishi and Strong Man),[58] and finally Black Dynamite (MVP and Shelton Benjamin).[59] Rush scored both of his team's pinfall wins and was not pinned or submitted in any of the losses.[54][55][56][57][58][59][60][61][62][63][64][65] Rush and Azul finished their tour with a pay-per-view on December 2, losing to Jado and Yoshi-Hashi in a tag team match, with Azul once again being the one pinned for the win.[66] On January 15, 2013, Rush gave up the CMLL World Light Heavyweight Championship to get another shot at El Terrible's CMLL World Heavyweight Championship.[67][68] On January 18, Rush returned to Japan to take part in the three-day Fantastica Mania 2013 event. During the first night, he defeated former rival Yoshi-Hashi in a singles match.[69] The following night, Rush was pinned for the win by Rey Escorpión in a six-man tag team match, where he, Hiroshi Tanahashi and La Máscara faced Escorpión, Kazuchika Okada and Volador Jr.[70] During the third and final night, Rush defeated Escorpión in a singles match.[71] Back in Mexico on January 22, Rush failed in his CMLL World Heavyweight Championship challenge against El Terrible, after being struck with a kick to the groin.[72][73] In March, Rush and El Terrible teamed up for the 2013 Torneo Nacional de Parejas Increibles like they had for the 2012 tournament, but the team lost in the first round to Dragón Rojo Jr. and Niebla Roja.[74][75] Two weeks later they were on opposite sides of a six-man tag team match at the 2013 Homenaje a Dos Leyendas show, where Rush, Rayo de Jalisco Jr. and Shocker defeated El Terrible, Mr. Niebla and Universo 2000 by disqualification.[76] In May, Rush, Marco Corleone and Máximo were stripped of the CMLL World Trios Championship, when Corleone was sidelined with a knee injury.[77] On June 9, Rush earned a big win over NJPW representative Shinsuke Nakamura in a main event singles match.[78][79] On June 30, Rush won the Mexican National Trios Championship for the second time, when he, La Máscara and Titán defeated Los Invasores (Kráneo, Mr. Águila and Psicosis) for the title.[80][81] On August 23, Rush entered the 2013 Universal Championship tournament, defeating El Terrible, La Máscara and Rey Escorpión to win his block and advance to the finals, to be held two weeks later.[82][83] On September 6, Rush was defeated in the finals of the tournament by NJPW representative Tanahashi.[84]

"The most hated wrestler in CMLL" (2013–2014)[edit]

In mid-2013, Rush once again began teasing a possible rudo turn as the crowd reaction to him grew more and more negative.[85][86] Despite officially being a técnico, Rush was now referred to as "the most hated wrestler in CMLL".[87] On September 13 at CMLL's 80th Anniversary Show, Rush pinned Negro Casas to win a six-man tag team match, while holding the ring ropes, a move commonly associated with rudos.[86][88][89] On October 8, Rush and La Máscara defeated Atlantis and La Sombra in the finals of a tournament to become the number one contenders to the CMLL World Tag Team Championship.[90][91] On October 18, Rush and La Máscara were awarded the CMLL World Tag Team Championship, when Rey Bucanero, one half of the previous champions, was unable to defend the title due to an injury.[92][93] Rush then began feuding with one half of the previous champions, NJPW representative Tama Tonga. After losing to Tonga in a singles match on November 1,[94] Rush and La Máscara successfully defended the CMLL World Tag Team Championship against Tonga and El Terrible on November 8, after Rush faked taking a low blow from Tonga.[95] On November 12, Rush received another shot at the CMLL World Heavyweight Championship, but once again failed in his attempt to dethrone longtime rival El Terrible.[96] Rush then resumed his rivalry with Negro Casas, pinning him following a low blow in a six-man tag team match on November 15, after which he accepted Casas' challenge for a Hair vs. Hair match between the two.[87][97] In January 2014, Rush returned to Japan to take part in the five-day Fantastica Mania 2014 tour.[98] For the entire tour, Rush feuded with Shinsuke Nakamura, culminating in a singles rematch between the two at the fourth event on January 18, where Nakamura was victorious.[99][100] Back in CMLL, Rush started another rivalry with Shocker, a longtime técnico, who turned rudo just so he could go up against Rush.[101] On February 18, Rush, La Máscara and Titán lost the Mexican National Trios Championship to La Peste Negra (El Felino, Mr. Niebla and Negro Casas).[102] Rush, Casas and Shocker had agreed to a three-way Lucha de Apuestas, but Casas was forced to pull out of the match, set for March 21, declaring that he would face the winner at a later date.[103] On March 21 at Homenaje a Dos Leyendas, Rush defeated Shocker for his fourth Lucha de Apuestas win.[104]

Los Ingobernables (2014–present)[edit]

The following month, Rush formed a new partnership with La Sombra. Now referred to as the two most hated men in CMLL's recent history, the two effectively became rudos, though they refused to acknowledge themselves as such, instead calling themselves "técnicos diferentes".[105] The two were eventually also joined by La Máscara, who adopted their técnico diferente attitude, forming a stable originally called Los Indeseables ("The Undesirables"),[106] but later renamed Los Ingobernables ("The Ungovernables").[107] On June 13, Rush and La Máscara lost the CMLL World Tag Team Championship to Negro Casas and Shocker.[108] On August 1 at El Juicio Final, Rush defeated Negro Casas for his fifth Lucha de Apuestas win.[109][110] Rush announced Casas' hair as the last hair he wanted to take, saying that he now wanted to wage his hair against masks.[111] In November, Rush was sidelined from in-ring action, after breaking two bones in his ankle.[112] He made his return from the injury on February 27, 2015.[113]

On May 15, it was reported that Muñoz was in legal trouble after allegedly punching an Arena México security guard, who had denied his wife entry to the arena. The security guard reportedly received a third degree cervical sprain, a concussion and a possible fractured vertebra in the incident, which took place on April 7. Afterwards, CMLL reportedly tried to keep the security guard from releasing the story to the media, while pulling Muñoz from all Mexico City events for three weeks. Following the story going public, Muñoz was also pulled from that week's CMLL events.[114][115][116] On July 21, Rush and La Sombra were involved in an incident in Guadalajara, where the two attacked fans who were throwing beers at them.[117] The following day, Jalisco's Boxing and Wrestling Commission suspended the two from wrestling in the state for three months.[118] While the commission only suspended them from wrestling in Jalisco, CMLL decided to pull both Rush and La Sombra from their Super Viernes show three days later. CMLL did not offer an official explanation for the change.[119] In early November, Rush and La Sombra began having issues with each other, which led to a singles match between the two on November 13, where Rush was victorious. After the match, the two founding members of Los Ingobernables made peace with each other.[120] It later turned out that this was La Sombra's final CMLL match as on November 19 it was announced that he had signed with WWE.[121] On March 18, 2016, at Homenaje a Dos Leyendas, Rush won his sixth Lucha de Apuestas, when he defeated Máximo Sexy with help from Pierroth.[122] On May 13, Rush and Pierroth, now acknowledged as his real-life father, turned on La Máscara.[123] Rush and La Máscara eventually reconciled the following September.[124][125]

On November 18, Rush returned to NJPW as the surprise tag team partner of Los Ingobernables de Japon leader Tetsuya Naito in the 2016 World Tag League.[126] Rush and Naito finished the tournament on December 7 with a record of four wins and three losses, failing to advance to the finals due to losing to block winners Tama Tonga and Tanga Loa in their final round-robin match.[127]

On December 22, 2017, Rush won the 2017 Leyenda Azul tournament.[128]

Also getting a big push is Mexican national light heavyweight champion, Rush, who on 2/22 at Arena Mexico defeated Ephesto to win the CMLL light heavyweight title using a double foot stomp followed by a Saito suplex.
