Dos Caras Jr., Dos Caras (meaning "Two Faces" in Spanish), is a Mexican Professional Wrestler and Mixed Martial Artist. He was born in San Luis Potosí, San Luis Potosí, Mexico.

Made his pro-wrestling debut on October 11, 2000, teaming with his father Dos Caras to defeat El Azteca and Chiba, in an event promoted by the Japanese independent promotion Pro Wrestling Kageki. This card was held in Shimonoseki and reports said that the junior looked very good for a rookie.

Before turning pro, Caras Jr. was a member of the Mexican national team in Greco-Roman wrestling for five years, and he placed third at the World Junior Championships in 1997 (held in Czech Republic), won the Central American and Caribbean Games three times and also won a medal at the Pan American Games. He was looking forward to compete in the Sydney 2000 Olympics, but due to lack of support, politics and government problems Mexico could not send any representatives to the Olympic wrestling competition so he turned pro instead.

Made his AAA debut on 9/4 when he ran-in during a match involving his father, that was getting beat up by Texano, Pirata Morgan and Espectro Jr., but his first actual match was on September 29, 2000, in AAA's "Verano de Escándalo" supershow. He teamed with Alebrije, Sangre Chicana and La Parka Jr. to beat "Los Consagrados" (Pirata Morgan, Espectro Jr., El Texano and El Cobarde).

During his first months he has feuded with the veteran stable of "Los Consagrados" and on January 21, 2001, he failed (teaming with his father) to conquer Texano and Pirata Morgan's National Tag Team Titles.

Dos Caras Jr. has been pushed as a top heavyweight tecnico since joining CMLL, but he lacks a notable feud at the moment. He's had mini feuds with Ultimo Guerrero, Universo 2000, Kenzo Suzuki and Mark "Marco Corleone" Jindrak, formed a team with Lizmark Jr. and Rey Bucanero, and done some work as a trio with Dr. Wagner Jr. and Mistico, but really hasn't had a monumental feud.
Dos is always on the side of good, and pushed as an agile guy for his size. Dos has also done some MMA fighting - sometimes with his mask and sometimes without - for DEEP promotions in Japan and for PRIDE, his MMA training included training at Marco Ruas gym. He's incorporated submissions to his fighting style. He's still an unfinished guy in lucha libre - and in MMA too -, but he's likely the best of guys in CMLL his size and his age.
Dos comes from a family of Wrestlers, he is a worthy heir of a dynasty of great wrestlers: His father Dos Caras Sr., uncles Sicodelico and Mil Mascaras, and his cousin Sicodelico Jr. are World-Wide Superstars as professional wrestlers.
Dos is a graduated of the UNAM where he earned a degree in architecture.
