Ruben Carbajal Lopez was a Mexican Luchador, or professional wrestler who is best known under the ring names Adorable Rubí and Rubi Rubalcaba / Rubi Rubalcaba. As Adorable Rubí he was one of the pioneers of the Exótico wrestling style, mixing Cross-dressing with wrestling to create a type or wrestling character that was more sexually ambiguous and self-obsessed. The "Adorable Rubí" character was inspired by Dizzy Gardenia, the first successful Exótico character to compete in Mexico. During his career he won the Mexican National Cruiserweight Championship, Mexican National Middleweight Championship and NWA World Light Heavyweight Championship. While he played an effeminate, self-obsessed character where it was implied he was homosexual, it was never revealed if that was Carbajal's personal sexual orientation as well.
