López is a former soccer player. He used to be one of the Five Soldiers of the Aztec Sun, the group of 5 midfielders and forwards of Mexico Youth, along with Saragosa, Suárez, Alvez and García. The 5 have their own way of playing soccer, the aerial Lucha Soccer Style, combining Mexican wrestling and soccer.


Battle of World Youth ArcEdit

Along with Ricardo Espadas, the quintet spent their childhood in poverty. During those days, Espadas and the quintet once attempted to steal soccer balls and equipments from a store. However, they were badly beaten up by the guys that the store owner hired. The turn of events was, coincidentally, that very same day. A charitable institution of Japan came and donated some toys, including soccer balls and equipment. The six of them had been practicing with the ball they were given since then.

Lopez, along with the rest, eventually become part of the Mexican youth team, participating in the World Youth. At some point before the tournament, Mexico had a training match with Uruguay, in which they lost 1-5.

World Youth Tournament

Mexico faces Japan as their first opponent in the group stage. The Five Soldiers have some chances, but because of Jun Misugi's offside traps, Ken Wakashimazu's saves, and mainly the Tachibana twins' Skylab techniques, their aerial Lucha Soccer Style is rendered ineffective.

The first half ends 0-0. The situation remains the same for most of the second half, until the 75th minute, when Garcia purposely injure the twins and receives a red card in return. Without the twins, the four remaining Soldiers successfully reach the goal with their aerial technique, and even though Wakashimazu repels Lopez's shot, Espadas manages to follow and score with a trick shot.

Japan ultimately scores 2 goals during the last minutes however, reversing the score. After that, with a draw against Italy and another loss against Uruguay, Mexico is eliminated.

Rising Sun ArcEdit

Like Garcia, Lopez and Alvez had also retired from soccer to become luchadores. However, the three of them still help Espadas, Suarez and Saragosa with some special training.

Later, when Tsubasa Ozora falls ill and has to be hospitalized, Garcia, Lopez and Alvez visit the hospital to deliver Espadas' message to Tsubasa and give him a special soup to recover.
