Twice a week, fans gather at the Arena Mexico, known as the “Cathedral of Lucha Libre,” to cheer-on
their favorite wrestlers. Lucha libre, which literally translates to ‘free fighting,’ has been a part of
popular Mexican culture for over a century. With their colorful costumes and high-flying acrobatics,
luchadores are able to combine the narrative of theater with the athletic virtuosity of sport to create a
spectacle that is undeniably breathtaking.
