El Hijo del Pierroth
La Nazi/La Comandante
2013 (Comando Caribeño)
Los Boricuas (Spanish for the Puerto Ricans) was a Mexican Lucha Libre (Professional wrestling) stable or group in Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL), one of Mexico's largest and the world's oldest professional wrestling promotions. The concept of the group was that a union of people born in Puerto Rico or in storyline terms "emigrated" to Puerto Rico, denouncing their Mexican heritage and embracing the Puerto Rican culture. The group was founded and led by Pierroth in 2000 and was together until the end of 2003 where it disbanded. In 2013 CMLL brought the concept back when they announced that a new Comandante Pierroth was putting together a new group of Boricuas, known as Comando Caribeño ("The Caribbean Commando"). The original team name referred to the Puerto Rican people, even though most of the wrestlers were not actually from Puerto Rico.
Los Boricuas (2000–2003)
In 1999 Pierroth Jr. returned to the Mexico City-based Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) promotion after an extended stay in Puerto Rico. Upon his return Pierroth Jr. declared that he was a Boricua, or Puerto Rican, declaring the superiority of the Puerto Rican people. He began teaming up with Gran Markus Jr. who also adopted the "Boricua" loyalty. Within weeks the duo became known officially as Los Boricuas and started to grow from a two-man team to a multi-man stable when they added the masked La Boricua and later on Veneno. At this point Pierroth Jr. took the nickname "El Comandate", acting like a dictator over the group, adding the female La Nazi as his personal body guard. In mid-2000 they added Violencia to the group, replacing El Boricua. At that point in time Los Boricuas began a storyline feud with Los Capos (Cien Caras, Máscara Año 2000, Universo 2000 and Apolo Dantés), by June 2001 the group added Poder Boricua ("Puerto Rican Power") to the group, as well as veteran wrestler the Killer and Mini-Estrella Pequeno Violencia to the group to strengthen their numbers.
At the CMLL 68th Anniversary Show the team of Gran Markus, Jr., Poder Boricua and Violencia unsuccessfully challenged for the Mexican National Trios Championship, losing to champions Mr. Niebla, Olímpico and Safari In the months following the 68th Anniversary show Gran Markus, Jr. left the group with the storyline being that he was tired of being under Pierroth's command. In leaving the group Gran Markus began working opposite Los Boricuas as the storyline developed. To fill the gap Pierroth introduced Nitro to the group, a CMLL wrestler who had previous worked as Filoso. On March 27, 2002, as part of CMLL's Homenaje a Dos Leyendas: El Santo y Salvador Lutteroth show Gran Markus Jr. defeated Veneno in a Lucha de Apuesta, or bet match, forcing Veneno to unmask as a result. In subsequent months Poder Boricua left the group as well, changing his name to "Poder Mexican" ("Mexican Power") and began working opposite the rest of Los Boricuas. On July 14, 2002 Poder Mexica and Mr. Mexico lost a Luchas de Apuestas match to Veneno and Violencia and as a result Poder Mexica was forced to unmask. The storyline feud between Los Boricuas and those that defected from the faction continued as Gran Markus Jr. won a Luchas de Apuestas match in November, 2002 forcing Veneno to have all his hair shaved off. The culmination of the storyline between Los Boricuas and the defectors came on March 21, 2003 as Pierroth Jr. and Gran Markus Jr. faced off in main event of that year's Homenaje a Dos Leyendas show. In the end Pierroth defeated Gran Markus and as a result Gran Markus Jr. was shaved bald afterwards. The last remaining storyline for Los Boricuas saw Violencia leave the group, which at the time was basically himself and Pierroth and had Pierroth unmask Violencia at the CMLL 70th Anniversary Show. In subsequent months Pierroth began teaming on a regular basis with Vampiro and Tarzan Boy, ending the Los Boricuas faction in CMLL.
Comando Caribeño (2013–present)
On May 9, 2013 CMLL introduced a new Comandante Pierroth, a character based on the original Pierroth around the time he formed Los Boricuas in 2000. The new Comandante Pierroth was announced as the leader of a new version of the Los Boricuas faction, called Comando Caribeño ("The Caribbean Commando"). The team included members of the original Pierroth's Los Boriquas; Pequeño Violencia, Pierrothito, and La Comandante (formerly "La Nazi"), and added Zeuxis to the group as well. With no other members competing in the regular men's division the group had very little presence during CMLL's shows, occasionally Pierrothito and Pequeño Violencia competed wearing the red, white and blue Puerto Rican inspired wrestling gear, but La Comandante and Zeuxis did not team up on a regular basis. In late 2014 Comandante Pierroth began teaming with Misterioso Jr. and Sagrado, although they were not officially members of Comando Caribeño at that time. In early 2015 it was officially acknowledged as working under the name La Comando Caribeno with both Misterioso, Jr. and Sagrada adopting the imagery of the Puerto Rican flag in their ring gear. On February 28, 2015 Misterioso Jr. and Sagrado defeated Delta and Guerrero Maya Jr. to win the CMLL Arena Coliseo Tag Team Championship for the first time.
