Lucha LIbre

A luchador at the antiguo Gigante in San Miguel

Lucha Libre (meaning free fighting), or Mexican Wrestling, appeared at the old Gigante in SMA this last weekend. These events are inventive, intentionaly comical, and enormous fun to watch and hear– the crowd goes nuts cheering and booing. Of course the other fascinating aspect are the masks and costumes, this luchador displaying somewhat minimalist gear compared to some of his over-the-top colleagues.
