Here is some of the footage I got last night from Lucha Libre Mexicana. Lucha Libre means "Free Fighting". This fight features the very popular Mascarita. I am sorry I have lost track of the other wrestlers name but am hoping someone will let me know over at my YouTube page.
Mascarita Sagrada is a Mexican midget wrestler who made his professional debut September 22, 1989 in Mexico City against Espectrito. He is highly regarded as the most popular and skilled Mexican mini-wrestler of all time and has performed for WWF / WWE, WCW, AAA, CMLL TNA and Lucha VaVoom among others. He has also been featured in several films and marketing campaigns, including an uncredited cameo in the film My Giant with Billy Crystal and an ad campaign for Virgin Mobile. From Wikipedia.
Lucha Libre events are a great way to promote products and services to the Hispanic community. Our events are family oriented, in the crowd you can can find from young kids to veteran followers of this colorful mexican tradition.
After soccer, wrestling (Lucha Libre) is the second most popular sport in Mexico, with thousands of people visiting the arenas every day of the week. Here in the United States, the weekly 3 hour Lucha Libre shows in “Galavision” are the Spanish cable show with the largest audience. In fact, over twenty million Americans are wrestling and lucha libre fans. From the website of Los Gladiadores Del Ring.
