My tribute to the late Mexican luchador (professional wrestler) and lucha film star, better known under the ring name Rayo de Jalisco ("The Lightning Bolt from Jalisco"). He is considered to be one of the best wrestlers of his generation. Linares' son followed in his footsteps and is working under the name Rayo de Jalisco Jr., wearing the same distinctive black mask with silver lighting bolt on it when wrestling. One of Linares' grandsons is also a wrestler, known as "Rayman".
During his career, Linares held the NWA World Middleweight Championship on three occasions as well as the Mexican National Tag Team Championship with lucha libre icon El Santo. He was inducted into the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Hall of Fame in 1996 and the AAA Hall of Fame in 2014. Linares worked for Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre for a large part of his career and was honored by them in 2013 as part of their annual Homenaje a Dos Leyendas show.
