There is nothing similar in action Friday night at the Arena México. This historic landmark in the center of Mexico City is the place to see one of the most dramatic sporting events of the country, lucha libre. The version of Mexican professional wrestling (the term literally means wrestling) is one of the largest business audience today in Mexico, only eclipsed in popularity by football. Characterized by colorful masks, fiery personalities and a bunch of Spandex, it's a show like no other and a unique experience not to be missed. The origins of the lucha libre: Lucha libre is a unique pop-culture phenomenon date back to 1863 when a Mexican wrestler, Enrique Ugartechea, first developed the art of the fight "free-style" based on Greco-Roman traditions . A few decades later, in the early 1900s the popularity of the fight began to grow when two Italian businessmen have begun to promote the fighting. The rules of lucha libre echo those of the American pro-wrestling; two or more wrestlers face each other in a ring and try to pin their opponent (s) for three seconds over the three rounds. And, much like pro-wrestling north of the border, the stories and stunts are carefully choreographed every game. Ask a luchador, and he will say that Mexican wrestling requires much more athletic ability; the emphasis in lucha is the spectacular aerial maneuvers rather than just muscle and brute force.
