Cassandro El Exotico  

A Celebration of Exotico 

It’s often the story in the world of pro wrestling that a wrestler plays a character to perform in front of the crowd.

But there are the occasional times where the person is not playing a  character.

Another perfect example would be Saúl Armendáriz, better known to the  world of pro wrestling, more specifically Lucha Libre, as “Cassandro el  Exotico” 

Before discussing Cassandro’s stellar career, let’s take a quick detour towards the history of the exotico gimmick in Mexico.

Going back to the 1940s, Mexico took an early turn towards having their  luchadores wear amazing costumes, from masks to robes and everything  in-between.

They worked together during their rookie years but went their separate ways on foreign excursions.
