I really wish that Nacho Libre had never come out. Because in all honesty, the Mexican Wrestler is a fantastic subject of study. A small excerpt showed me this:
In 1942, lucha libre would be forever changed when a silver-masked wrestler, known simply as El Santo (The Saint), first stepped into the ring. He made his debut in Mexico City by winning an 8-man battle royal. The public became enamored by the mystique and secrecy of Santo’s personality and he quickly became the most popular luchador in Mexico.
Basically since 1942 we’ve seen a rise in masks and insanity in the Mexican wrestling genre. We’ve also seen an increase in men being out of shape and dressing as overweight women as part of their regimen.
These guys are nuts and way more entertaining than our WWE guys.
