Miguel Aarón López Hernández (born November 9, 1988) is an American luchador enmascarado, or masked professional wrestler, best known under the name El Hijo de Rey Misterio. His ring name is Spanish for "The Son of the King Mystery" or more correctly "The Son of Rey Misterio". He is the nephew of the luchador Rey Misterio Sr. He is also the cousin of Rey Mysterio, who started his career as "Rey Misterio Jr." He mainly works on the independent circuit in the United States, especially in California and in Mexico, especially in Tijuana, Baja California.
El Hijo de Rey Misterio grew up in a wrestling family with both his uncle and his cousin being very well known Luchadors. Despite the ring name, in an interview on YouTube he revealed Rey Misterio is actually his uncle. At the age of 13 he began training with his uncle Miguel Ángel López Díaz who wrestles as Rey Misterio (Sr.) at his uncle's wrestling school in Tijuana. He made his professional wrestling debut in 2006, initially working under the ring name Diablo. By the end of 2006 his uncle gave him permission to use the "Rey Misterio" name and he became "El Hijo de Rey Misterio". The name has led to some confusion, especially when wrestling in the United States where a lot of fans have mistaken him for the son of Rey Mysterio, but Mysterio is actually his cousin. Some promoters have actively sought to exploit this confusion by neglecting to bill him as "El Hijo de" and just billed him as Rey Misterio. In one controversial case a Bolivian promoter used World Wrestling Entertainment footage of Rey Mysterio to promote a tour by El Hijo de Rey Misterio, when Hijo de Rey Misterio found out he cancelled his tour. When El Hijo de Rey Misterio cancelled his tour the Bolivian promoter had someone else wrestle under the mask, pretending to be El Hijo de Rey Misterio.
Since adopting the "Hijo de Rey Misterio" name he has been working mainly for Pro Wrestling Revolution (PWR) in Northern California, shows in Tijuana and made various independent wrestling promotion appearances in America. His stint in PWR saw him team with his uncle on several occasions, the two won a tournament to become the first PWR Tag Team Champions when they defeated the Border Patrol (Oliver John and Nathan Rulez) on May 31, 2008. The duo defended the title a couple of times during 2008 but were forced to vacate the title in June, 2009 as Rey Misterio, Sr. suffered a serious injury. He has stated that while he likes working in the United States he really wants to focus on a wrestling career in Mexico, hoping to work for Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) or Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA), Mexico's two largest professional wrestling promotions. In October 2009 it was reported that El Hijo de Rey Misterio had been working at CMLL's wrestling school in Mexico City, Mexico to train for his future CMLL debut. He would, however, never make an appearance for CMLL, before suddenly announcing his retirement from professional wrestling in early 2011. On May 27, 2011, a new El Hijo de Rey Misterio, presented by both Rey Misterio, Sr. and Konnan, made his debut in Tijuana. The original El Hijo de Rey Misterio returned to professional wrestling in November 2011. On December 25, 2011, he defeated Mortiz and Mr. Tempest in a ladder match to win the Baja California Championship, joining Los Perros del Mal in the process.
El Hijo de Rey Misterio is part of an extended family of wrestlers, his uncle Miguel Ángel López Díaz is best known under the ring name Rey Misterio (Sr.), his cousin Oscar Gutiérrez, worked for World Wrestling Entertainment as Rey Mysterio. His other cousin is a wrestler known as Metalika and his uncle, Juan Zezatti Ramírez, is better known as Super Astro.Pro Wrestling Revolution
