AND MTV TR3S THIS SUMMER!

Featuring amazing aerial acrobatics and elaborate masks, Mexican Lucha Libre is a significant part of the country’s culture and is the best-attended live sporting event after soccer, which is the national sport. For the first time ever, Mexican-Americans will see their beloved traditional sport make the crossover from Latin television to the American mainstream media.
