La Esquina del Dolor...
This is a lucha libre / wrestling page, made to keep an eye in mexican lucha, and most important, in its luchadores, wheter they work in Mexico, or outside of it... not only mexican born luchadores will be present in this page, but any foreing wrestler who has made an impact in the local scene
What is lucha libre?Wrestling was introduced in Mexico more than 60 years ago by american wrestlers, soon, mexican wrestlers emerged and the sport adapted to the county's culture and physical characteristics of its people, and thus, Lucha Libre was born. The Lucha style is more acrobatic and 'choreographed' than the US wrestling, mexican 'luchadores' combine olympic, amateur and greco-roman style wrestling, with acrobatics, martial arts and regular 'wrestling'.
What about the masks?The masks were also introduced in Mexico by american wrestlers, but unlike in the US, in Mexico the mask became HUGE. I could go to do an anthropologyst impersonation and said they come from the aztecs or something, but I'm not an anthropologyst and I don't think the masks are related in any way to that aspect, or at least not very importantly related.
