Activities, sports and leisure Mexico
Catch - Lucha libre
Introduced through deromaine during the French occupation in 1863, Mexican wrestling has now achieved its acclaim. After a few years of neglect, the lucha libre, a great popular tradition par excellence, has made a comeback. Mexican wrestling differs from American wrestling by its more aerial style. In the ring, the luchadors, masked malabars, dressed in a mega kitsch costume, fight in the name of Good and Evil, each wrestler embodying one of these eternal forces.
It's always the good guy who wins, while the bad guy must leave the ring with boos. The hero is certainly victorious, but after having received many blows and suffered spectacular catches.
The wrestlers have names evoking their supernatural origin. For these heroes from another age, the mask is essential.
The crowd is jubilant. Tickets are cheap. It is the typically popular spectacle, which attracts all generations.
