Solar Jr. originally began his career wrestling under the name of Balam, a “jaguar” figure from pre-Colombian mythology. His professional debut was in August 2008 in Aguascalientes. Solar Jr. was trained by among others, Platino and by his father, Solar. He has had rivalries / feuds with Fishman Jr. and with the Traumas. In 2009, he and his father decided it was time to switch to the character of Solar and thus he became Solar Jr. He is college educated and holds a degree in clinical psychology. Like many masked wrestlers, he has a dual life, one as a luchador and one in a separate career. He continues to pursue both careers vigorously. Photo by Cuauhtemoc Garcia.
