Manuel Cota Soto (June 5, 1954) is a semi-retired Mexican luchador, or professional wrestler best known under the ring name Mocho Cota. Mocho is Spanish for "Blunt". In his career, that began in 1979, Cota has held both the Mexican National Welterweight Championship and the NWA World Welterweight Championship. Cota worked mainly for Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre / Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (EMLL / CMLL) throughout his career. Cota's brother wrestles as Guero Cota and his two sons wrestle as Tigre Cota and Zayco.

Professional wrestling career

Manuel Cota made his professional wrestling debut in 1979, choosing to wrestle under the ring name "Mocho Cota", a name he would use for his entire career. On November 12, 1982 Cota won the Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre (EMLL) promoted Mexican National Welterweight Championship by defeating Talismán for the title. The title change set off a long running storyline feud between Mocho Cota and Talismán that saw both men win Luchas de Apuestas against each other, seeing their opponents shaved bald after the matches. Cota's Mexican Welterweight title rein lasted for 265 days until he lost the title to Chamaco Valaguez on August 4, 1983. On January 27, 1984 Mocho Coto defeated Américo Rocca to win the NWA World Welterweight Championship. Cota's title reign lasted until July 26, 1984 where he lost the title to Chamaco Valaguez.
