Former WWE superstar Ricardo Rodriguez and indie wrestler Renee Michelle discuss their wrestling journeys during a Coastal Championship Wrestling show on Cinco de Mayo (May 5, 2016) at COYO Taco, 2300 NW 2nd Ave., Miami.

Ricardo Rodriguez, now known as Jesus Rodriguez, met one of his luchador idols at the CCW show. He grew up interested in pro wrestling and graphic design, earning degrees in both. An all-around wrestling talent, Rodriguez is wrestling on indie shows nationally and internationally as well as training aspiring wrestlers at the Team Vision Dojo in Orlando, his current home.

Renee Michelle has come a long way since debuting in 2013. Not only is she beautiful but she can bring it, learning from her training and experiences, especially wrestling in Japan. Launching her unexpected wrestling career via Maryland Championship Wrestling, Renee is very proud of her Native American heritage, which is symbolized on her ring attire. A former South Florida resident, she is also a college grad.

Michelle wrestled young up-n-comer Rachael Ellering, and Rodriguez battled Lost Soul Ricky Rush of New Blood Rizing with The Prodigy J-Dawg Brooks. Later, Rodriguez teamed with the Guadalupe Brothers (Julio and Stefan) against New Boold Rizing (J-Dawg and Rush) and Tony DaBlack.

The main event focused on the lucha libre style with world renowned Mexican legend Blue Demon Jr. teaming with Mascara Sagrada against Black Taurus and Pablo Marquez.

Also, Chelsea Durden and Rachael Freeman competed in a mixed tag match. Dan Evans was the ring announcer. Speedy was the official photographer, and your referees were Josh Colon and Angel Crush.

The night before the show, world-renowned Mexican wrestling legend Blue Demon Jr. conducted an open seminar for aspiring and indie wrestlers at the Main Even Training Center in Oakland Park/Fort Lauderdale. Run by former ECW and WWE talent Pablo Marquez, the seminar also featured former WWE superstars Gangrel and Ricardo Rodriguez.
