April 30, 2015 – San Diego, CA

On March 21 the lucha libre world lost one of it’s biggest and brightest stars in Hijo Del Perro Aguayo.  A main event wrestler of every major wrestling promotion in Mexico, founder of his own in Perros Del Mal and beloved by fans around the world, this son of one of the biggest lucha legends of all time had truly become a legend in his own right. The outpouring of love for Perrito has been overwhelming and appreciated by his family, both by blood and by the bond of Perros Del Mal.  

In order to pay tribute to Aguayo, Masked Republic teamed with artist Jeffrey Everett ( to create a tribute piece which was displayed at the lucha libre themed La Bulla art show and experience on April 11th in Los Angeles.  Masked Republic founder and CEO Ruben Zamora presented a canvas print of the piece to La Bulla co-founder Dan Madigan.  The canvas is currently on display as part of the La Bulla exhibit at Plaza De La Raza Arts & Cultural Center in LA, and will remain at the center permanently after the exhibit officially closes.

Aguayo family member and business manager of the Perros Del Mal brand, Kahn Del Mal, was appreciative of the piece and brought it to the attention of other family members.  Kahn and Zamora, who had met prior at a Tijuana lucha libre event, began discussing Perros Del Mal and Masked Republic working together in order to officially distribute company merchandise around the globe. With the family’s blessing, it was decided that the first collaboration would be officially releasing the tribute piece as a t-shirt.  

“I am very glad to have been able to meet and spend time with Kahn as we tried to come up with a way that Masked Republic could pay tribute,” said Zamora. “Not only was I a big fan of Perrito in the ring and as a larger than life lucha libre personality, but he was directly instrumental with the launch of our Viva La Lucha pay-per-view series that aired nationally in the U.S.  We will forever be in his debt and are very happy to be able to pay our respect to him in this manner while allowing his legions of other fans do so as well in a way that is officially licensed and endorsed by his family.”  

The Everett art piece is available for a limited time in four different colors on multiple apparel items including t-shirts for men and women and tank tops at  Additional announcements about Masked Republic produced and distributed Perros Del Mal related merchandise are expected shortly.
