The older of the Alvarez Brothers, Nicolas surely has to show his younger brother who's boss every now and again. But in all seriousness, this guy is a true stud. He works hard in school, and he works hard on the mat. Following his advice that 'Hard Work Wins' is a true testament to how much Nicolas loves the sport and how good he is at it. He rocked the HERO Quest, and we are sure that this season and the many season's to come will be a huge success for Nicolas.
