LUCHA LIBRE
Lucha libre, or freestyle wrestling, is a very popular spectator sport in Mexico and features comical masked wrestlers who often become larger-than-life figures. In any fight there will be a goodie (“técnico”) and a baddie (“rudo”) and the action consists of spectacularly acrobatic leaps and throws, and pantomime violence. These wrestlers are so popular that they often feature in special wrestling magazines, as well as on television and radio. The most famous of all was “el Santo” (The Saint), who always wore a distinctive silver mask. He appeared in dozens of films and is still remembered with affection despite his death in 1984.
