Jose Munoz, known by his ringname Apolo Dantes, is an Mexican professional wrestler who has been a longtime mainstay of Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre throughout the 1990s. The son of Alfonso Dantés, himself a legenday luchadore during the 1960s and 70s, Munoz has toured Japan and often teamed with El Hijo del Santo and Dr. Wagner, Jr. in six-man tag team matches against The Headhunters during the late 1990s. He has also appeared on WWF Super Astros.
As of 2006, Apolo Dantes is mostly inactive as in-ring wrestler. Instead, he's running the weekly Tuesday and Saturday CMLL shows at Arena Coliseo Guadalajara. He'll work the occasional DF show as a member of the Capos or to fill out a rudo side, and the odd Guadalajara area show.
