Blue Demon, Jr is the first masked Mexican wrestler to win the NWA World Heavyweight Championship. The win was also the first time the title changed hands in Mexico. He is the alleged adopted son of the original Blue Demon, but of course as with anything in pro wrestling there is controversy around that claim. Irregardless, he has made his way in the business to become an international star, winning titles throughout Mexico, and easily one of the biggest names in Lucha Libre.
On a personal note, this painting was very exciting for me as it was my first to be shown in California, as part of the HeART of Lucha show at The Spot in San Diego. I’m hoping to have more shows on both coasts and throughout the Midwest in the months to come!
