Sangre Chicana

Sangre Chicana (Spanish for Chicano Blood) is the ring name of Mexican professional wrestler Andrés Durán Reyes. Born November 30, 1951 in Paredón, Coahuila, he currently works for the Mexican promotion Asistencia, Asesoría y Administración (AAA).

Reyes made his professional debut in 1973 wearing a red mask with a gold stripe (Antifaz) and calling himself Lemus. A year later, still wearing the same mask, he decided to change names and became Sangre Chicana. He first gained fame in an infamous triple threat mask vs. mask match, against El Cobarde and Fishman. As the rookie, Chicana lost his mask that night, but rose to fame after unmasking other wrestlers and winning numerous championships. Also, he was one of the very few to work for both Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre (EMLL) (now known as Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL)) and Francisco Flores' promotion Toreo Cuatro Caminos Independants. In the following years the Chicana family grew as "Lemus I" debuted in the 1980s as well as "Lemus II" in the 1990s. In the year 2000, both "Lemus Jr" and "Sangre Chicana Jr" made their pro wrestling debut.
