Luchador Ricky Banderas has worked for wrestling promotions not only in Mexico, but North America and Puerto Rico as well.

He was born Gilbert Cosme on May 25, 1976 in Bayamón, Puerto Rico.
Ricky began his wrestling career in the International Wrestling Association (IWA) in Puerto Rico.
While he was there, he won the IWA Hardcore Championship nine times, the IWA Intercontinental Heavyweight Championship twice, the IWA World Heavyweight Championship five times and the IWA World Tag Team Championship five times (three times with Gran Apolo, once with Glamour Boy Shane and once with Cruzz).

Ricky left IWA in 2006 and went to Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) in Mexico.
There he wrestled as Muerte Cibernetica.
In November 2006 he went to MTV's Wrestling Society X, where he was the second and last wrestler to win the WSX Championship before the company folded.
Ricky went back to IWA, then returned to AAA as Mesias.
There, he became the first wrestler to win the AAA World Heavyweight Championship.
During that time, Ricky hooked up with the American wrestling promotion Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) and debuted with them as Judas Mesias in September 2007.
In March of 2008 his run with TNA came to an end and he went back to focusing his time on AAA.

His ring name "Ricky Banderas" is a fusion of Latin musician Ricky Martín and actor Antonio Banderas.

Besides the titles in IWA, WSX and his AAA World Heavyweight Championship, Ricky has held the GPCW Super-X Monster Championship and the IWC World Heavyweight Championship.

In the beginning, while doing his wrestling training in Puerto Rico, Ricky attended the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico in Bayamón, and completed two years of study in computer technology.

Besides Ricky Banderas, he has wrestled under the ring names Asesor Cibernetica, El Mesias, Judas Mesias, Muerte Cibernetica.
