Ohio Valley Wrestling (1999–2011)
Barela debuted in 1999 for Ohio Valley Wrestling with Raul LaMotta as the tag team Los Locos (Ramón and Raúl Loco). The team won the OVW Southern Tag Team Championship twice, but eventually split, after which Barela adopted the new ring name Low Rider. As Low Rider, Barela portrayed a hot headed crowd favorite who would mix his interviews with bits of Spanish. Barela eventually worked to main event status, winning the OVW Heavyweight Championship twice through victories over Apoc and James "Moose" Thomas.
Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (2011-2012)
Barela made his debut for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) on March 13, 2011, at the Victory Road pay-per-view, where he appeared as a planted fan and interfered in a First Blood match between Hernandez and Matt Morgan, helping Hernandez pick up the win. On the following edition of Impact!, the alliance of Hernandez, Sarita and Rosita, known collectively as Mexican America, faced Morgan, Angelina Love and Winter in a six-person street fight, after which Barela once again entered the ring and attacked Morgan. On the March 24 edition of Impact!, Barela was officially presented as the newest member of the anti-American group and was given the ring name Anarquia. On the July 14 edition of Impact Wrestling, Anarquia and Hernandez defeated The British Invasion (Douglas Williams and Magnus), with help from Rosita, to become the number one contenders to the TNA World Tag Team Championship. They would receive their shot at the TNA World Tag Team Championship on August 7 at Hardcore Justice, but were defeated by the defending champions, Beer Money, Inc. (Bobby Roode and James Storm). Two days later, at the tapings of the August 18 edition of Impact Wrestling, Anarquia and Hernandez defeated Beer Money, Inc. in a rematch, following interference from the "Mexican Heavyweight Champion" Jeff Jarrett, to win the TNA World Tag Team Championship. On September 11 at No Surrender, Anarquia and Hernandez successfully defended the title against D'Angelo Dinero and Devon, following interference from Rosita and Sarita. Later that month, Mexican America began feuding with Ink Inc. (Jesse Neal and Shannon Moore), stemming from their match at Sacrifice in May, where Hernandez had legitimately injured Neal. On October 16, during the Bound for Glory Preshow, Mexican America successfully defended the TNA World Tag Team Championship against Ink Inc. The following month at Turning Point, Anarquia, Hernandez and Sarita defeated Ink Inc.'s Jesse Neal, Shannon Moore and Toxxin in a six-person tag team match to retain the TNA World Tag Team Championship. On the following edition of Impact Wrestling, Anarquia and Hernandez lost the TNA World Tag Team Championship to Crimson and Matt Morgan. On the following edition of Impact Wrestling, Hernandez and Arnaquia failed to regain the title in a rematch. On December 6, it was reported that TNA had sent Barela back to Ohio Valley Wrestling, which had recently become the promotion's new developmental territory. After spending three months off television, Anarquia returned on the March 22, 2012, edition of Impact Wrestling, when he and Hernandez unsuccessfully challenged Magnus and Samoa Joe for the TNA World Tag Team Championship. Anarquia's last appearance was on the April 26 episode of Impact Wrestling, losing to Kurt Angle via submission. The following day, Barela's profile was removed form TNA's official website. His departure from the promotion was confirmed four days later.
Independent circuit (2014–present)
After two years of inactivity, Barela began taking independent bookings back under the ring name of Low Rider. He made an appearance for Inspire Pro Wrestling on January 5, 2014, teaming with Sammy Guevara to defeat Barrett Brown and Bolt Brady.
Barela appeared in the comedy/action film Overtime alongside OVW trainer Al Snow and fellow OVW wrestlers Rudy Switchblade and Ted McNaler.
