Lucha Libre: Mexican Wrestling in Miami

Lucha Libre: Mexican Wrestling in MiamiSunday, October 16, 4pm-6pm - Bank Unided Cener, 1245 Dauer Dr, Coral Gables

Action-Packed, High-Flying Mexican Wrestling will be fighting in Miami on October 16th at Bank United Center. Come see the amazing “Lucha Libre” presented by Warrior Fight Federation (WFF). This is a Pro Wrestling event for the entire Family.

“La Lucha Libre” is characterized by colorful masks, rapid sequences of holds, maneuvers and unparalleled acrobatic skills. It is similar in many ways to the form of wrestling that inspired it — American professional wrestling. Both forms are full of colorful characters and outlandish story lines, and the rules in both types are very flexible and loosely enforced. In fact, lucha libre translates to “free fighting.

The most obvious thing that sets lucha libre apart is that almost every major Mexican wrestling star wears a mask and doesn’t use his real name. “La mascara” plays an important part of the storyline, and can also provide some anonymity in a country enthralled by the sport of Mexican wrestling. Therefore its following, both in Mexico and other countries, has made it the most popular sport after soccer in a country of 100 million people, and an integral part of pop culture. #LuchaLibreEnMiami @MexicanosenMia
