As Mexicans, we grew up not only watching but also feeling and most importantly loving Lucha Libre. Going to the Arena was a ritual full of expectations and emotion. Being there with our parents, brothers/sisters and friends, surrounded by strangers, all of us supporting our own particular idol, it didn’t matter if he was “Rudo” or “Tecnico”, good or bad, El Santo or Blue Demon, it was, along with soccer, our favorite weekly passtime for children and adults. The best way to forget our problems and fight boredom and for those two hours feel free and happy.
Going to a Taqueria before every match is a very important part of the ritual. These places are full of smells, flavors and colors where people gather to eat tacos and wait for the time to go to the Lucha Libre.
