Ave Rex is an independent luchador, and armchair cultural critic. His blog chronicles his adventures in the ring, but more often he analyzes representations of race, class, sex, gender, and sexual orientation within professional wrestling.
Ave Rex was trained by maestro José Luis Gómez, and debuted in August 2011 under the name "El Fénix." He has also trained with maestros Sepulcro, Skayde, and Pequeño Pierroth in Mexico City. When he is not revolutionizing the academy or dominating in the ring, Rex also dabbles in critical theory, percussion, philosophy, tequila, and partner acrobatics. He loves bad 80s music, spending time with his 13 year-old puppy, and riding his bicycle. In the future he hopes to help develop a lucha libre gym/physical-fitness based program for underserved youth.
He doesn't speak Spanish very well.
