Carmelo Reyes González is a Mexican pro wrestler, better known by his ring name, Cien Caras ("Hundred Faces"). He is best known for his appearances with the Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre.
After training under Diablo Velasco and Pantera Negra, Carmelo debuted in 1974 under the ring name "Mil Caras", but due to the confusion with Mil Máscaras, he dropped 900 units to become "Cien Caras". Caras was initially a técnico, but quickly developed a more violent wrestling style, and became a rudo. He lost his mask in the culmination of a feud with Rayo De Jalisco.
On June 24, 1987 in Nezahualcóyotl, State of Mexico, Caras defeated MS-1 for the NWA World Light Heavyweight Wrestling Championship. He held the title until March 20, 1988, when he lost to Lizmark in Mexico City, Mexican Federal District.
On August 18, 1991 in Monterrey, Caras defeated Konnan to become the second ever CMLL World Heavyweight Champion. He held the title until leaving the CMLL in May 1992, vacating the title in the process. Caras followed Konnan to the newly formed Asistencia Asesoría y Administración, where he continued his feud. At the inaugural TripleMania event on April 30, 1993, Caras defeated Konnan in a two out of three falls retirement match by count-out after Jake "The Snake" Roberts interfered on his behalf. Caras remained in the AAA for several years before returning to the CMLL.
In CMLL, Caras is a member of the stable Los Capos ("The Bosses") with his two younger brothers, Mascara Año Dos Mil 2000 and Universo Dos Mil (Los Hermanos Dinamita—"The Dynamite Brothers"), and Apolo Dantes. In 2004, Caras and Mascara Año Dos Mil were defeated by Perro Aguayo, Jr. and El Terrible in a hair versus hair tag team match, with Caras and Mascara having their heads shaved . Caras and Mascara fought Aguayo, Jr. and his father, Perro Aguayo, in a second hair versus hair match in February 2005, with Caras and Mascara losing once again. The match was billed as Caras's retirement match, but he continues to wrestle in secondary CMLL venues.
