Roberto Soto (born September 12, 1948) is a Puerto Rican professional wrestler, better known by his ring name, Invader II. Soto was one-half of the tag team "The Invaders" with Invader I.

Professional wrestling career

Although competing primarily in the Puerto Rican-based World Wrestling Council with José González, Soto would also wrestle in International World Class Championship Wrestling and Continental Championship Wrestling during the 1980s.

In 1988, he was among those present when wrestler Bruiser Brody was stabbed to death by Soto's tag team partner González while at a WWC event in San Juan, Puerto Rico and interpreted for American wrestlers after police officers arrived on the scene.[1]

Competing in Japan during the 1990s, he would later return to the WWC teaming with Invader III in a feud against González . However, their alliance was short-lived, with Soto eventually defeating Invader III in a mask vs. mask match at WWC Anniversary on August 1, 1998.
