Ohio Valley Wrestling
Raul LaMotta grew up in Anaheim, California. He broke into the business in 2001 for APW. He traveled the Southern Californian territory which eventually led him to Mexico City and wrestled in the world famous Arena Mexico. After accomplishing all he could there, he made his way east to Louisville, KY and Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) where he met up with the "Lowrider" Matt Barela and formed the tag team of "Los Locos". Together they captured the OVW Southern Tag Team titles as well as non-televised matches for WWE. After a falling out between the two, Raul tried his luck at singles wrestling only to suffer an almost career-ending shoulder injury. After surgery and extensive rehab, Raul has since made his way back to the OVW roster and is now currently on the fast track to the top once again.
