 Professional wrestling career

Jiménez was born in a small village named Nuevo Padilla, located in the town of Tula, Tamaulipas, but while he was still a child, his family moved to Tampico, where he grew up.[1] After Jiménez’s brother Adolfo Tapiahad become famous as La Parka, he decided to follow in his footsteps and become a professional wrestler.[1] After being trained by his brother and El Salsero, Jiménez made his debut under a mask as “Frankenstein”, working for El Salsero’s promotion in Guadalupe, Nuevo León.[1] In 2001 he began wrestling under the ring name “Suplex” and acknowledged publicly that he was the brother of Adolfo Tapia.[7] He worked as Suplex on the Mexican Independent circuit for four years without much success, after which his brother decided that he needed a makeover in order to gain success.[1]

In 2005 he bought the rights to use the ring name “El Hijo de Cien Caras” (“The Son of Cien Caras”) and took the ring character of the son of Cien Caras, teaming up with Cien Caras, Jr. (who was also not related to Cien Caras).[1] Together the team became known as Los Junior Dinamitas (After their “Father’s” group Los Hermanos Dinamita). On December 11, 2005Los Junior Dinamitas defeated Flash I and Flash II to win the Occidente (western states) Tag Team Championship on a show in Guadalajara, Jalisco.[8] Los Junior Dinamitas held the Occidente Tag Team Championship for 546 days in total, making sporadic title defenses in that time.
In 2007 Los Junior Dinamitas began working for International Wrestling Revolution Group (IWRG), with the group being expanded with Máscara Año 2000, Jr. and El Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, who were actually the sons of Máscara Año 2000 (Cien Caras’ brother). On May 31, 2007 Hijo de Cien Caras and Máscara Año 2000, Jr. defeated the team of El Pantera and El Felino to win the IWRG Intercontinental Tag Team Championship.[8] El Hijo de Cien Caras’ run as double champion lasted under two weeks before losing the belts to the team of El Sagrado and Rayman on June 10, 2007.[9] Following the loss of the Occidente Tag Team Championship Los Junior Dinamitas featured the team of Hijo de Cien Caras and Máscara Año 2000, Jr. more than the other two members as the team quickly established themselves as the most dominant IWRG Tag Team Champions as they held the title for 801 days and made 11 successful title defenses, although they did have a long period of inactivity as a team in early to mid 2009 due to Hijo de Cien Caras not working regularly for IWRG.
During the time period the two had successful defenses against such teams as Electroshock and El Hijo de Anibal, Pierroth and El Hijo de Pierroth, El Hijo de Solitario and El Hijo de Anibal, Rayo de Jalisco, Jr. and El Hijo de Anibal, Dr. Wagner, Jr. and Silver King, Silver King and El Dandy, El Fantasma and Fantasma, Jr., Scorpio, Jr. and Zumbido, Arlequin and Hijo de Pierroth and The Headhunters.[9] Hijo de Cien Caras participated in the 2008 IWRG Rey del Ring tournament on July 24, 2008 and was the 29th, and last wrestler eliminated, only outlasted by the winner Scorpio, Jr.[10][11] On August 9, 2009 Los Junior Dinamitas marathon reign ended when the team of Ricky Cruzz and Scorpio, Jr.[11]

During an IWRG show on April 29, 2010 Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) wrestler Silver King showed up for the show, allegedly to promote the movie “Nacho Libre II” but ended up starting an interpromotional feud between AAA and IWRG.[12] Los Junior Dinamitas quickly came to the defense of IWRG, wrestling against Silver King and other AAA representatives such as Alex Koslov, Chessman and Cibernético.[13][14] During AAA’s TripleMania XVIII Los Junior Dinamitas made a surprise appearance moments after Silver King and Último Gladiador won the AAA World Tag Team Championship to challenge the new champions. This marked the first time IWRG wrestlers appeared on AAA television.[15] On June 20, 2010 Máscara Año 2000, Jr. and El Hijo de Cien Caras defeated Los Piratos (Pirata Morgan and El Hijo de Pirata Morgan to win the IWRG Tag Team Championship for a second time.[16] On November 14, 2010, Los Junior Dinamitas lost the title back to Los Piratos.[17]

Park) and nephew of Ramón Ibarra Banda (Super Parka), Johnny Ibara, King Balam and Desalmado as well as the cousin of Volador, Jr. the son of Ramón Ibarra.[7] His family outside of wrestling included his brothers Ulises, Alejandro, Gabriel and a sister named Georgina.[1] Despite using the name “Son of Cien Caras” he was not in any way related to Cien Caras, real name Carmelo Reyes González or the González wrestling family. Jiménez, like many other luchadores, kept his private life a secret and his real name was not a matter of public record until his death.[18]

Death

In the early morning hours of November 29, 2010, Jiménez was murdered in Coyoacán, Mexico City. According to local officials Jiménez and a female companion named Adela de Luna González were sitting in a car, when they were approached by two unknown individuals who, without saying a word, opened fire and hit Jiménez once in the neck and Luna five times in the chest and neck, before fleeing the scene in a black Dodge Neon. Paramedics pronounced both Jiménez and Luna dead at the scene.[4][5][19][20] Jiménez was survived by his wife Maria Felix Rocha and his children Alan Eustace, Edgar Adolfo, Abraham and a newborn baby girl.[1] It was later reported that Luna, a 50 year old nightclub owner in Mexico City, and her former husband had been investigated by the Mexico City Justice Department for “shady dealings” involving smuggling goods from China and Japan.[6]

Did you know that Jesse James was one of the 10 Most Hated Celebrities of 2010?

Did you know who were the 10 Most Hated Celebs of 2010?

Number 1

 Justin Bieber – Number one is the guy you love to hate, Justin Bieber? The prep-swirl shagcut that beckons at you from every prepubescent boy at the mall? The simple and often lip synched songs? The cocky attitude that makes Kanye West look like the late Pope John Paul II?
Number 2


LeBron James  – What a bum rap LeBron James received because he left Cleveland. He went from being on top of the basketball world. This ill-fated decision changed the way NBA fans and even non-NBA fans viewed LeBron perhaps forever.  Before a televised audience of millions, he spurned his home state Cavs to take his ‘talents to South Beach.’  He had not let the Cavs know before hand about his decision. He embarrassed the Cavs franchise and a fledgling city before millions. He became the man a state turned against him. as his ‘then’  had the best record in the NBA upon entering the playoffs. 

Number 3 

Heidi Montag &  Spencer Pratt  – The most futile and irritating reality couple, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, is once again between the ten most hated celebs of the year. Heidi started the year revealing a plastic surgery makeover that completely disfigured her 24 year-old face and body, making her feel like Edward Scissorhands. Spencer, the enabler, was even accused of keeping his plastic doll imprisoned at home. 

Number 4

LeAnn Rimes  – LeAnn Rimes, was dubbed a husband stealer.  While celebrity affairs and scandal occur on the daily, it’s the Twitter declarations including her February tweet celebrating her “one year” relations with Cibrian, the public Helped her to earn a spot on the most hated  celebrity.

Number 5

Jesse James – earned his spot on the list when he became the man who broke Sandra Bullock’s heart.  I mean, what kind of guy does a thing like that? His multiple affairs (no less than seven!) with various skanky women, including Nazi Michelle “Bombshell” McGee, destroyed his marriage.  Later he had the nerve to call Sandra “the love of his life” and admit that he threw away a pretty amazing life for… what? A number 5 spot on the most hated celebrity list. 

Number 6

Miley Cyrus - dropped her good persona, and reinvented who she was with a racy new image and bad girl attitude with her re-invention album, “I Can’t Be Tamed” – from outrageous wardrobe and dirty dance moves to simulating lesbian kisses on stage and bumping and grinding with an older guy at a club. Miley’s busy year did not end before cheating on her boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, drinking some beers in Spain, her parents’ divorce, the celebration of her 18th birthday and finally being caught on camera while getting high on a salvia bong. Helped her to earn a spot at number 6.


Number 7

The Kardashians  – I guess it’s the irritating sense of entitlement or the fact that none of them seem to have a legitimate talent and are essential paid to be pretty. What do they really do besides exhaust the world’s supply of bronzer and fake eyelashes? They are good for helping their men win championships, although I am sure those cocky attitudes help them gain their spot at number 7.

Number 8

Jersey Shore Cast –The guidos and guidettes of MTV’s Jersey Shore have become household names, and there’s no stopping them now. Just when you thought the madness had ended with season 2, it appears that Snooki, JWoww, Sammi, Angelina, Pauly D, Vinny, Ronnie, and our favorite. Hey do they have black people in Jersey?

Number 9

Kanye West – Kanye West said in an interview he’s the Michael Jordan of music and the voice of our generation – I’m not the type to hate (okay, so I’m lying), but when you start making comments like that, someone needs to shoot him down. He thinks he’s the voice of the people. He thinks he’s a trendsetter. He somewhat is, but not a positive one. I can’t stand his belligerent arrogance and hate how he is nothing more than a whiny crybaby who plays the victim in everything. I am surprised with his great attitude that he did not rank higher…

Number 10

Ke$ha (15 votes) – Ke$ha is one of those girls that seems to get away with anything and everything. She reminds me of a young Lady Gaga. We all know that time and time again we hate her. The way she dresses the way she wants and does what she wants. And we can’t forget that naked picture scandal that Ke$ha got involved in. Is love her drug?

Phenylpropanolamine (PPA) has certain ingredient that is causing strokes and seizures in children:

I would like to thank those of you who expressed condolences on the recent passing of my mother. She suffered a hemorrhagic stroke while she was driving home from my house at 7:30 and passed away at 8:30.

My mother’s stroke and passing was an enormous shock to my family because she did not have any symptoms or risk factors for a stroke. Just the week before she had gone to her doctor for a check up and received a clean bill of health.


She did, however, develop a cold while she was visiting me and had taken Alka Seltzer Cold Plus for 3 days Since her passing, we have learned that Alka Seltzer is one of the many cold medicines that contains Phenylpropanolamine (PPA) which can cause hemorrhagic stokes or cerebral bleeding even with the first use. I am forwarding a list of other medications that currently use PPA. These medicines are supposedly being recalled but my mother just purchased this medication less than two weeks ago. Pharmaceutical companies have known about this danger for years, we unfortunately, did not. 

I urge you to review the list of medicines with PPA and avoid these medications. All drugs containing

PHENYLPROPANOLAMINEare dangerous. You may want to try calling the 800 number listed on most drug boxes and inquire about a REFUND. Please read this CAREFULLY. Also, please pass this on to everyone you know. STOP TAKING anything containing this ingredient. It has been linked to increased hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding in brain) among women ages 18-49 in the three days after starting use of medication. Problems were not found in men, but the FDA recommended that everyone (even children) seek alternative medicine.

The following medications contain Phenylpropanolamine:

Acutrim Diet Gum Appetite Suppressant
Acutrim Plus Dietary Supplements
Acutrim Maximum Strength Appetite Control
Alka-Seltzer Plus Children’s Cold Medicine Effervescent
Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold medicine (cherry or or ange)

I just found out and called the 800#on the container for Triaminic and
they informed me that they are voluntarily recalling the following medicines
because of a certain ingredient that is causing
strokes and seizures in children:

Orange 3D Cold & Allergy Cherry (Pink)
3D Cold & Cough Berry
3D Cough Relief Yellow 3D Expectorant

They are asking you to call them at 800-548-3708  800-548-3708 with the lot number on
the box so they can send you postage for you to send it back to them, and
they will also issue you a refund. If you know of anyone else with small children,

PLEASE PASS THIS ON. THIS IS SERIOUS STUFF!

The Key is to… look before you leap

One Light Bulb at a Time:
A physics teacher in high school, once told the students that while one grasshopper on the railroad tracks wouldn’t slow a train very much, a billion of them would. With that thought in mind, read the following, obviously written by a good American ..
 Good idea .. . one light bulb at a time . . . .

Check this out .

 I can verify this because I was in Lowes the other day for some reason and just for the heck of it I was looking at the hose attachments . They were all made in China .

 The next day I was in Ace Hardware and just for the heck of it I checked the hose attachments there. They were made in USA .

Start looking … In our current economic situation, every little thing we buy or do affects someone else – even their job . So, after reading this email, I think this lady is on the right track .. Let’s get behind her!

My grandson likes Hershey’s candy . I noticed, though, that it is marked made in Mexico now.. I do not buy it any more.

My favorite toothpaste Colgate is made in Mexico … now I have switched to Crest.. You have to read the labels on everything ..

This past weekend I was at Kroger. I needed 60 W light bulbs and Bounce dryer sheets . I was in the light bulb aisle, and right next to the GE brand I normally buy was an off-brand labeled, “Everyday Value . ” I picked up both types of bulbs and compared the stats –
they were the same except for the price ..  The GE bulbs were more money than the Everyday Value brand but the thing that surprised me the most was the fact that GE was made in MEXICO and the Everyday Value brand was made in – get ready for this – the USA in
a company in Cleveland , Ohio .

So throw out the myth that you cannot find products you use every day that are made right here ..

So on to another aisle – Bounce Dryer Sheets . .. . yep, you guessed it, bounce cost more money and is made in Canada . The Everyday Value brand was less money and MADE IN THE USA ! I did laundry yesterday and the dryer sheets performed just like the Bounce Free I have been using for years and at almost half the price!

My challenge to you is to start reading the labels when you shop for everyday things and see what you can find that is made in the USA – the job you save may be your own or your neighbors!


If you accept the challenge, pass this on to others in your circle to  start buying American, one light bulb at a time! 

Stop buying from overseas companies!

Let’s get with the program . . . .. help our fellow Americans keep their jobs and create more jobs here in the U . S . A ..

To understand the deep meaning of it, you must read it first

They are like the ten commandments to follow in life all the time. 

1] Prayer is not a “spare wheel” that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a “steering wheel” that directs the right path throughout. 

2] So a Car’s WINDSHIELD is so large & the Rear view Mirror is so small? Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. So, Look Ahead and Move on. 

3] Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write. 

4] All things in life are temporary.  If going well enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong don’t worry, they can’t last long either. 

5] Old Friends are Gold! New Friends are Diamond! If you get a Diamond, don’t forget the Gold! Because to hold a Diamond, you always need a Base of Gold! 

6]  Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says, “Relax, sweetheart, it’s just a bend, not the end! 

7] When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when GOD doesn’t solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities. 

8]A blind person asked St. Anthony: “Can there be anything  worse than losing eye sight?” He replied: “Yes, losing your vision!” 

9] When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them, and sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you.

10] WORRYING does not take away tomorrow’s TROUBLES; it takes away today’s PEACE.
