The build up to this was years in the making.
I guess it started on my first trip to Mexicali. I think I was in the 4th grade. I remember we were walking to the market place, and we passed these posters glued on to the walls of these masked men. They were professional wrestlers. Flash forward to Freshman year of high school, when my brother Cameron’s best friend was into WWF. He would come over, what seemed like every morning, and give us the breakdown on all of the drama of the world of pro wrestling. Then, in 2006, Nacho Libre clinched it. I wanted to go to see a Mexican Wrestling match. We found out this event was in Provo a couple of years ago. We have wanted to go, and even once drove by and saw the event happening and couldn’t make it. Finally, we were trying to go and see a Mexican Wrestling match while we were in New York, and weren’t able to make it work out.
It was on the Provo City Court house steps.
This is what we discovered…
The best part of it was the characters:
Le Mirgra, I think.
El Azteca was the hero, I mean he threw a piñata into the crowd.
(He ended up hitting a baby in the face, but the baby loved it.)
Guess who won?
Next was El Seceleto:
Yeah he was the villan. He was yelling at little kids.
The good guy, whose name I never caught.
Muscles, I feel. All I remember his muscles.
It didn’t got well for El Seceleto…
Then there was this young man…
It got a little homoerotic.
And really crazy. These two were probably the most fit of anyone else we saw so their stunts were nuts.
On top of it all, I saw this girl:
A Hernandez girl. Whose name is Jessica? I know she didn’t know my name either.
But it was fun to see her.
Another this checked off of my bucket list.
