What's the deal with these guys. I always assumed they were some sort of faction in Mexico, but now I'm having my doubts. I've been playing EWRevenge and it includes Villanos IV and V. They aren't grouped in a tag team so this got me to wondering a few things. Are they a faction in Mexico? Or are they more like the Tiger Mask, where a lot of different guys have/are playing The Villano character. I know that they were a tag team in WCW, but that was WCW. Also are any of them any good and what IS the grand total on the Villanos?

The Villanos are the five sons of Ray Mendoza, a famous older Luchador.

Villano 1- Died January 4th, 2001 of a heart attack. Was 49.

Villano 2- Died April 17th, 1989 under mysterious circumstances. Apparently hung himself because of the pain he'd incurred while wrestling was too much to take.

Villano 3- Lost his mask last year. Still wrestles on occassion. Is 50, so...

Villanos 4 & 5- WCW's Villanos. Both active, but since I can't follow Lucha, not real sure if they're currently teaming or not.

III, IV and V wrestle in CMLL (the show I recap!), and show up periodically on TV, but not that much lately. Their most recent angle was a reprisal of an old fued against the Brazos - it's the 15th anniversey (a year early!) of a famous lucha match where Villanos I, IV and V beat the Brazos in a All Losers Must Unmask match, and there still was some harsh feelings about how that went down.

They're good, but IV and V just weren't the flashy highspots artists like the guys who did caught on - they're more gorounded based brawlers who didn't really fit into the mode WCW was looking for, assuming they were looking for any luchadors.

FWIW, they go from oldest to youngest, I to V.

La Arena - Click Here - has good bios on I, II, and Mendoza, as well as information about the other 3.

The Villanos wore black and red masks, black and red leotards. Each of them also had the appropriate Roman numeral on their tights-- at least, the only two that I ever saw.

IV and V were the guys in WCW who routinely cheated by doing the old “switcheroo”. One of them would be outside the ring while the referee was distracted, and pull his partner out, substituing himself in his place. The Villanos' opponent, not realizing the switch had taken place, would drag the downed man to his feet, only for him to pop up and attack.

Almost never worked, though-- the Villanos were definitely a jobber tag-team in WCW.

Kind of funny that the referees and the other wrestlers can't read Roman numerals.

Villano III lost the WWF Light Heavyweight Title to Wild Pegasus in Japan, and regained it from him about a year later. Villano III won about eight Light Heavyweight Titles or so.

Ofcourse they are also well known for being the victim of a botched move by Raven & Kanyon when their neckbreaker combo went wrong and one of the Villano's ended up screwing up his neck.

Which is funny, since a good portion of the Villanos' gimmick involves them wearing some degree of pink in their outfits and coming to the ring to Henry Mancini's Pink Panther theme.

I know of Japanesse and NA wrestling, but my lucha is sadly lacking. Can you define these terms for me please?

I'm not familiar with the term "mat hog", either, but:

Rudos = heels
Technicos = faces

I believe it was Villano IV that took the botched powerbomb neckbreaker from Raven and Kanyon, but don't hold me to that.

I have a video clip of the incident, but I can't see the Roman numeral.

It was Villano IV who injured his neck during the Raven/Kanyon incident. Villano V hung out with the lWo while his brother was out.

Okay, how the hell can we go 15 posts deep about the Villanos and not have a single Hyatte reference? Sometimes I get very disappointed in the Wiener community. ;)

Well, one could assume that people were generally intersted in the Villanos and not running jokes.

Really? I can't imagine the few people who actually like lucha would want to discuss it, here amongst discussions about crappy WWE booking, Molly Holly's behind or the evil that is Vince Russo. :>

Since I don't think it's been mentioned, Villano III had the 2000 match of the year with Atlantis, in their msacara contra mascara showdown.
