Lucha Libre / by Vikram Valluri

Watching Mexican wrestling has on the top of my list awhile now. Unfortunately during my visit in Oaxaca the Lucha Libre tour was taking place in Mexico City.

A few days after I returned to the Bay Area, I saw a flyer for a Lucha Libre in San Jose. Naturally, I had to go and see what it was all about.

Everything was predetermined, from stunts to the winners. The storyline echoed the current political climate which was unexpected. One of the fighters wore a boarder patrol costume which stirred up the audience. I found this aspect of the event intriguing and quite entertaining.
