Genaro Vázquez Nevarez (born September 18, 1960) is a Mexican professional wrestler and trainer, best known under his ring name Blue Panther. He made his in-ring debut in 1978 and has since then worked for most major Mexican professional wrestling promotions such as the Universal Wrestling Association (UWA), Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) and Asistencia, Asesoría y Administración (AAA) during his career. He was one of the first wrestlers to leave CMLL for AAA when it was created in 1992, but returned to CMLL in 1997 where he has competed ever since. Vázquez's two oldest sons, known as Blue Panther Jr. and Black Panther, are also professional wrestlers, working for CMLL since 2013. A third son referred to as El Hijo de Blue Panther has been introduced to the audience but has not made his in-ring debut. He was the first CMLL World Middleweight Champion and has won the Mexican National Middleweight Championship twice, the CMLL World Trios Championship twice and the Mexican National Trios Championship. He also won the 1999 Torneo Gran Alternativa and the 2000 Leyenda de Plata tournaments. In his career, he has won the mask of such notable wrestlers as Black Man, Lizmark Jr. and Love Machine. In 2008, he lost his own mask to Villano V and has since had his hair shaved off as a result of losses to Averno and Sam Adonis. Vázquez opened his own gym in the early 1990s, where he was one of the first Mexican professional wrestling trainers to train both men and women.
