The Mystery of Mixtape//

While Mixtape’s enigmatic lucha mask shrouds his face in shadows, it’s nothing compared to the mystery of his past.  Rumors of growing up in Brooklyn, or possibly Tokyo, have never been confirmed, but he first appeared in Tijuana in the late nineties with a crate full of records and clothesline that could almost take a man’s head off. 

Adding to the mystery is the fact that nobody has ever heard the bastard speak since he showed up on the scene.  Typically behind his trusty turntables, he communicates strictly through record scratches and audio samples, generally able to get his point across effectively. 

While a widely feared rudo in the ring, his DJ service’s Yelp review is currently only 2 and a half stars due to a tendency to only play Wu-Tang regards regardless of the clients requests.  As Ultimate Carlos began assembling his army of lucha thugs, he needed a giant bruiser and someone to coordinate entrance theme music.  In Mixtape he had found both.
