Jesus Rodriguez

Head Trainer

Jesus “Ricardo” Rodriguez has over 16 years of experience in the international professional wrestling world. Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Rodriguez began his training in a backyard in Van Nuys, CA. Under the guidance of his original trainer, Latino Blanco (White Whip), he learned the Mexican style of professional wrestling known as Lucha Libre. Dawning the name of "Chimaera", Rodriguez traveled throughout the United States, Mexico, and Europe for approximately four years on the independent wrestling circuit before receiving a try-out at the Staple Center for the largest professional wrestling company in the world, World Wrestling Entertainment. Rodriguez made his WWE debut as Ricardo Rodriguez, the personal announcer to Alberto Del Rio. He took on several behind the scenes roles for the WWE including backstage interviewer and on-screen commentator with the English and Spanish teams. Rodriguez would go on to wrestle in his Chimaera mask on a regular basis under the name 'El Local". After leaving the WWE, Rodriguez traveled to India to operate the Great Khali's CWE Academy. At the CWE academy Rodriguez helped many aspiring wrestlers achieve their dreams, including giving some the knowledge they needed to reach the WWE. He also trained at schools in Los Angeles, CA and Orlando, FL. Rodriguez often spent summers on the popular “summer camp” circuit in England entertaining youth all around that country. In March 2022 Rodriguez found his way to Lancaster, PA, where he has now made his home.‍
