Jean Carlos Baez, better known as Jay Money, is a professional wrestler currently working for Xtreme Wrestling Alliance (XWA).

Career

History

Growing up in San Sebastian, Puerto Rico, Jay was always fascinated with wrestling. He grew up watching the likes of Carlos Colon, Invader #1, Huracan Castillo and El Super Medico, among other famous Puerto Rican wrestlers in WWC. He was also a Japanese wrestling fan, and his favorite wrestler has always been The Great Muta. By the age of 15, he joined his school's amateur wrestling team. Just a year after joining the team, he got into a car accident which injured his right knee and back/neck. After he finished High School, he went to college for a year, but then dropped out as he wanted to go to a cooking school. Jay always liked cooking meals for friends and family, especially around the holidays. His father, after winning the local lottery, sent him to a well-known Puerto Rican Cooking school. After finishing, he opened up a small restaurant place called 'La Borinqueña.' Jay and his father continued to build more and more, until they finally had their very own 3-Star Restaurant, which is still growing. One day, an old friend of his who was working on New Wrestling Stars, told to him audition and see if the owner (Emmanuel Bonilla) would consider adding him to the roster. He did so, and Emmanunel was impressed. Few weeks later he got a call from Emmanuel to join up. On his first match, Jay faced a former WWC Caribbean Champion, Vengador Boricua. He lasted over 5 months on the roster, until a knee injury. After some time, NWS released him from his contract. He healed pretty quickly, and now looking for another fed that would take him. After being signed with XWA, he now hopes to make an even bigger impact in wrestling now that he's with the 'Top Dogs.'

On the King of Kings Tournament PPV, he won his first title, The XWA Cruiserweight Championship from then-champion, Sparx.

He lost the title to Joe Roberts in a Triple Threat Japanese Rules match against both Roberts and Alex Rothschild.

On his spare time, not only does he have his own local restaurant, he also writes a small column every now and then on the local Newspaper called Siglo XXI and is co-owner along with his dad of the San Sebastian Patrulleros, his town's baseball team.
