Rey Bucanero, the King of Pirates

Guest Author - Vance Rowe

Arturo Ortiz was born in 1974 and debuted in professional wrestling in 1991. He was trained by Pirata Morgan, Hombre Bala and Verdugo for wrestling and spent many years wrestling in undercard matches for CMLL, Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre. It wasn’t until 1996 when he started to receive more important matches and became more popular with the fans. It was then that he won the Gran Alternativa tournament with his partner, Emilio Charles, Jr.. It wasn’t until 1997 when Ortiz one his first title. That was the CMLL World Trios Championship with Satánico and Emilio Charles. However, the group was intermediary champions to take the Trios championship off of Héctor Garza, who was preparing to leave the promotion at the time.

After that, Ortiz began to work for the WWE’s Telemundo venture, Los Super Astros where he wrestled as Rey 'Pirata' Ortiz. In 1999, Ortiz went back to work with CMLL and began feuding with a wrestler named Olimpico. And the feud eventually led to a mask vs. mask match between the two. However, Ortiz began teaming with another rudo (heel) named Shocker. They teamed together in a tournament that was known as Ruleta de la Muerte. This is a tournament where the losers advance and the final losing team have to wrestle against each other and the loser of that match gets the mask of his partner. Shocker won and got Bucanero’s mask. It was about this time that Rey Bucanero began teaming with Ultimo Guerrero and they were recruited by Satánico to join his new group. In 2000, Bucanero and Guerrero won the vacated CMLL World Tag team Championship.

It was in 2001, when Ortiz and Guerrero turned on Satánico and cost him to lose a match with Tarzan Boy. Ortiz, Guerrero and Tarzan Boy went on to form the trio of Los Infernales. Not to be outdone, Satánico teamed up with Averno and Mephisto and began using the Infernales name as well. The teams feuded over who could use the name and Bucanero’s team eventually lost a seven man tag team cage match and began using the name Los Guerreros del Infierno. Rey Bucanero has gone on to win the CMLL World Tag Team Championship on three different occasions, the CMLL World Trios Championship one time and is the current CMLL World Light Heavyweight champion. Most recently, Rey Bucanero teamed up with Ultimo Guerrero to defeat Team Japan in the first round of the TNA World X Cup tournament. Bucanero has also wrestled for such companies as New Japan Pro Wrestling, Frontier Martial Arts Wrestling, Toryumon and Dragondoor.

At 5’10” tall and weighing around 210 pounds, he may not be one of the biggest wrestlers around today, but Rey Bucanero is certainly one of the quickest and one of the most exciting luchadors to watch.
