Super Muñeco (Real name unrevealed; born April 10, 1962) is a is a Mexicanmarker Luchador enmascarado, or masked professional wrestler. Super Muñeco is Spanish for "Super Toy", a comedic ring character based on the clown. Super Muñeco is best known for having the second highest number of Luchas de Apuestas "bet match" wins having won the mask or hair of over 100 wrestlers.

Super Muñeco is the son of deceased professional wrestler El Sanguinario (the Bloodthirsty) and initially worked as "Sanguinario, Jr." before changing his ring persona to Super Muñeco. Muñeco's brothers wrestle or have wrestled as Sanguianrio, Jr. and Sanguinario, Jr. III, while a third brother wrestles as "Super Muñeco, Jr.". Super Muñeco was one third of the team Trio Fantasia along with Super Ráton and Super Pinocho, a trio with ring personas geared towards the kids in the crowd.

Professional wrestling career

Muñeco made his professional wrestling debut on March 22, 1982 working under the name "Sanguinario, Jr." named after his father "El Sanguinario". Initially he teamed with his father, but did not make much headway under the "Sanguinario, Jr." name. One day in late 1983 Muñeco's girlfriend commented that it was odd he played a bloodthirsty Rudo (a villainous character or Heel) when it was so unlike who he really was. The comment set off an idea, based on a famous Mexican "Tramp Clown" called "El Tramposo", he developed a "wrestling clown" ring character called "Super Muñeco" (Super Toy in Spanish), complete with a mask that looked like a smiling clown face. With the Super Muñeco character he quickly became a Tecnico (a good guy or Face), especially popular with the kids. While the ring persona was popular with the kids, the other wrestlers did not like the comedic persona nor did they like to work with and lose to "a clown" causing them to work "stiff", by actually punching him or twisting joints a bit harder than necessary to show their displeasure. After showing everyone that he was more than just a kids gimmick and that he could actually wrestle he began earning the respect of the other wrestlers, allowing them to work matches without actually harming each other. In the mid-1980s Super Muñeco worked mainly at "Pavillón Azteca" and became one of the main attractions on their weekly shows. He became one of the first television stars when Lucha Libre returned to regular television in the 1980s, helping the show Super Lunes (Super Monday) attract good ratings and drawing a full crowd whenever he was on the Pavillón Azteca shows.

Super Muñeco teamed up with Super Ráton (a wrestler using a Mighty Mouse ring persona) and Super Pinocho (Based on the character Pinocchio) to form Trio Fantasia, a comedy trio that through a combination of skill, charisma and looks became popular both with children and adults. Together Trio Fantasia won the Districto Federal Trios Championship and the AWWA Trios Championship. The team also worked against other teams with similar kid-oriented comedy themes, drawing full houses for their storyline feud with Los Tortugas Ninja (four men wearing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costumes), the storyline even saw Trio Fantasia team up with "Coliseo 2000" to defeat Los Tortugas in a Luchas de Apuestas, mask vs. mask, match. Trio Fantasia would also unmask Los Thundercats (a trio wrestling as Leono, Panthro and Tigro from the ThunderCats cartoon). In the early 1990s Trio Fantasia began working for Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA), a professional wrestling promotion with a reputation of using ring personas that were more kid friendly, such as "Los Power Raiders" (A group of Power Rangers imitators). In AAA Super Pinocho intentionally unmasked La Parka so that a photographer could get a picture of his face; This action caused him to be very unpopular with both wrestlers and promoters that he was forced to retired from wrestling. Super Ráton left AAA not long after leaving Super Muñeco as a singles competitor.

Muñeco began working a storyline against Los Payasos (The clowns), a group of Rudo clowns that was the complete opposite of everything Super Muñeco stood for. On May 22, 1994 Muñeco, Ángel Azteca and El Hijo del Santo teamed up to win the Mexican National Trios Championship from Los Payasos. The makeshift due would hold the title for four months before losing them to Los Payasos. On April 15, 1995 Super Muñeco, Rey Misterio, Jr. and Octagón defeated Los Destructores (Tony Arce, Vulcano and Rocco Valente) to win the Mexican National Trios Title; Holding it for three months before losing the belts to Fuerza Guerrera, Psicosis and Blue Panther. After losing the Trios title Muñeco worked more as a singles wrestler, focusing on winning Luchas de Apuestas, adding mask and hair wins to his already then impressive list of wins. Currently he works on the Mexican Independent circuit, making appearances for various smaller promotions. Over the years he has won over 100 Luchas de Apuestas with over 80 mask wins; the most notable being the masks of rivals Coco Rojo and Coco Negro of Los Payasos, Medico Asesino, Jr. and el Hijo del Huracan Ramírez. Super Muñeco's Apuesta record is only surpassed by Estrella Blanca who has over 200 confirmed Luchas de Apuestas wins.

Private life

Super Muñeco is the son of Hebert Alejandro Palafox Montiel, who wrestled as El Sanguinario. One of his brothers currently works as Sanguinario, Jr., the third to actually use the name, another brother used the name as well but now works as "El Tramposo", a "clown tramp" gimmick. The wrestler working as "Super Muñeco, Jr." is not, as the name would otherwise suggest Muñeco's son but a third brother who uses the name. Muñeco has been married for over 20 years, it was his wife's (then fiancee) suggestion that sparked the idea for Super Muñeco. Together the couple have at least one kid.
