Sugi Sito

Sugi Sito (born Francisco Javier Mar Hernández) is a Mexican professional wrestler. He was born in León, Guanajuato to a Mexican father and Chinese mother.

In November 1949, Sugi Sito defeated Jacobo Macías on an Arena Mexico card. Sito then left Mexico and gained a measure of great success wrestling in Houston. Danny McShain suffered a skull fracture during one of his matches against Sugi Sito due to Sito's stiff strikes to the head.

In the early 1970s, Sugi Sito and Chin Lee worked for Stu Hart's Stampede Wrestling as a tag team. Sugi Sito later returned to Mexico where he became a promoter.

Sugi Sito was part of a large lucha libre family. His three brothers (Huroki Sito, Panchito Robles and Manuel Robles) were all luchadores, as with his son-in-law (El Mexicano), nephews (Black Cat, El Jabato and Pánico) and even his daughter La Briosa.
