Hijo del Signo (born April 30, 1987), also known as Signo Jr., is a Mexican luchador enmascarado, or masked professional wrestler currently working for the Mexican professional wrestling promotion Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) portraying a rudo ("Bad guy") wrestling character. Hijo del Signo's real name is not a matter of public record, as is often the case with masked wrestlers in Mexico where their private lives are kept a secret from the wrestling fans. His ring name is Spanish for "Son of the Sign", based on the ring name of his father El Signo.

Personal life

Hijo del Signo's full name is not publicly known, which is traditionally the case in Lucha Libre when a wrestler has never been unmasked, but it is known that his paternal last name is Sánchez, revealed when his father Antonio Sánchez Rendón, best known under the ring name El Signo, was unmasked.

Professional wrestling career

Hijo del Signo made his professional wrestling debut in early 2008 after training under his father as well as Gory Cortes, Bestia Magnifica, Viento Negro and Black Terry He was victorious in his first match, defeating a Mexican wrestler called Maytor.

He competed for the 2009 Toryumon Mexico's Young Dragons Cup, losing to eventual tournament winner Trauma II. Hijo del Signo became an International Wrestling Revolution Group (IWRG) regular, working their 2010 Torneo Relampago de Proyeccion a Nuevas Promesas de la Lucha Libre ("Projecting a new promise lightning tournament"), a tag team tournament where a rookie teams up with an experienced wrestler. Hijo del Signo was teamed up with Dr. Cerebro for the tournament, defeating Imperial and Rocket in the first round and then Guizmo and Ultraman Jr. in the second round. The team continued their success by defeating Oficial 911 and Comando Negro in the finals to win the tournament.

Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (2011–present)

CMLL introduced Generacion 2011 in early 2011 which a group of young wrestlers who all made their debut around the same time, they were not considered an actual group, more of a graduating class of the CMLL wrestling schools. Generacion 2011 included Hijo del Signo., Magnus, Dragon Lee, Enrique Vera Jr., Super Halcón Jr., Hombre Bala Jr. and Booby Zavala. Hijo del Signo made his CMLL in ring debut on December 28, 2010, teaming with Puma King and Tiger Kid, losing to the team of Enrique Vera Jr., Metal Blanco and Palacio Negro. Hijo del Signo entered the 2011 Torneo Gran Alternativa, teaming up with the veteran Mr. Niebla. In the first round they defeated Ángel de Plata and Blue Panther, in the second round they lost to Diamante and La Sombra. CMLL held a Forjando un Ídolo (Spanish for "Forgin an idol") tournament in April and May 2011, with the purpose of identifying which of the 16 "Rookies" in the tournament would move up the ranks of the promotion. The tournament consisted of two rounds, first a round-robin group round, with the top 2 in each of the four groups competing in an elimination tournament. Hijo del Signo defeated Puma King and Hombre Bala Jr., only losing to Diamante in the first round, earning him six points, enough to advance to the second round. In the elimination round Hijo del Signo was defeated by Pólvora. He also appeared on the CMLL 78th Anniversary Show, CMLL's biggest show of the year, in an unsuccessful bid to win the 2011 Leyenda de Plata ("Silver Legend") tournament. Hijo del Signo was one of 18 wrestlers competing in the Mexico City version of the 2012 Reyes del Aire ("Kings of the Air") tournament, but did not win it. CMLL held a 16-man tournament focusing primarily on rookies called Torneo Sangre Nueva ("The New Blood Tournament") in March 2012 which saw Hijo del Signo. among the participants. The second block competed on March 13, 2012 and included Disturbio, Hombre Bala Jr., Raziel, and Tritón team up to face Robin, Bronco, Hijo del Signo and Super Halcon. Jr. Raziel took the victory, eliminating Tritón to end the nearly 25 minute long match to move on to the finals. Hijo del Signo competed in the 2012 Torneo Gran Alternativa, a tag team tournament that sees a rookie randomly teamed up with an experienced wrestler for a tournament, in this case Hijo del Signo teamed up with El Felino, losing in the first round to Raziel and Volador Jr. The Mexico City Boxing and Wrestling commission endorsed a number of tournaments over the summer of 2012 to crown a number Distrito Federal (Mexico City) Championships. On April 15, 2012 Hijo del Signo defeated Tritón in a tournament final to win his first wrestling championship, the Distrito Federal Middlweight Championship.

In early 2013 Hijo del Signo became involved in a storyline feud against the veteran tecnico ("good guy" character) Metálico, a storyline that saw Hijo del Signo cheat more than once to defeat Metálico in various six-man tag team matches. The two found themselves on opposites sides of a match at the Arena Coliseo 70th Anniversary Show on April 7, 2013 with Metálico teaming up with Hombre Bala Jr. and Super Halcón Jr. while El Hijo del Signo teamed up with Nosferatu and Taurus. The storyline between Hijo del Signo and Metálico took center stage during the match as most of the action centered around the two. In the second fall Hijo del Signo pulled Metálico's mask off, hoping to use the distraction to gain a pinfall, but instead he was disqualified when the referee saw the blatant rulebreaking by El Hijo del Signo. The storyline between the two was also featured a number of other shows throughout March and April, including a one-on-one match on CMLL's Super Viernes show, their main weekly show and an indicator that CMLL is escalating the storyline between the two. At the Arena Mexico 57th Anniversary Show Hijo del Signo teamed up with Los Guerreros Tuareg (Arkangel de la Muerte and Skándalo) to defeat Metálico, Sensei and Soberano Jr. with El Hijo del Signo scoring the deciding pinfall on Metálico.
