Latin Lover (wrestler)

Latin Lover (wrestler)

See Latin Lover (TV series) for the Spanish language series.

Victor Manuel Resendiz Ruiz (born October 25, 1967 in Monterrey, Nuevo León) is a Mexican actor and former professional wrestler wrestling for Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) in Mexico. He is better known by his ring name Latin Lover. He was sometimes criticized by Hispanics who watched a translated rerun of WWF Monday Night RAW on Telemundo, to be the Mexican ripoff of Shawn Michaels' in-ring persona as a heel. This is mainly because of his nickname, as they're related in some way, and because they both use the same finishing move. In 2005, he competed in and won Bailando por un Sueño. He announced his retirement on January 26 after a serious injury requiring surgery.
