[NOAH Update] Following the news last week about the grandson of El Santo coming to train in Pro Wrestling NOAH, NOAH has in turn released the information themselves as well as an actual picture of El Santo’s grandson.
Neitodel Santo[pictured left] is the son of El Hijo del Santo [pictured right]. Neito stands 174cm and weighs in at 95kg, and in standard lucha fare his age has not been disclosed. Nieto hopes to become a world-class wrestler over just another luchador (lucha libre style wrestler). I have also noticed that Nieto has experience in Jujutsu and that will certainly aid him in better learning the Japanese styles of take-downs and holds and even break falls as well.
Neito is expected to join the NOAH Dojo in May, though NOAH has not released any of the specifics as of yet.
[NOAH News] News that is making press in Japan is that one of El Santo’s grandson’s, the son of El Hijo del Santo, will be heading to Japan to become a trainee in Pro Wrestling NOAH. Apparently an agreement was made for El Hijo del Santo’s son to come to Japan as he aims to become a world-class wrestler. ニエル・デル・サント (Nieru Deru Santo / Nieto del Santo) stands 174cm and weighs in at 95kg, his age has not been disclosed. He will begin his training this May. He will remain in Japan for 3 months then he will head back to Mexico to make his official debut. The early word is that he would then be open to return and compete in NOAH soon following.
He will join the ranks of many multi-generation wrestlers who have trained in Pro Wrestling NOAH. From Ross & Marshall Von Erich who are currently training and competing in NOAH to even current WWE superstars in Ted DiBiase Jr. and Richie Steamboat.
El Hijo del Santo’s son is already making news in another way as he will be the first trainee to be masked as he trains and stays in Japan. [El Hijo del Santo in the picture standing below a statue of El Santo]
