The Most Famous Masked Luchadores in Mexican Wrestling
Lucha Libre or ‘free fighting’ is a cultural spectacle of professional wrestling in Mexico. This sport is popular not only for the high-flying maneuvers of the competing wrestlers, but also for the mystique of their personas. Masks is an important part of Lucha Libre’s tradition. They are symbolic of the figure that the wrestler is portraying — from animals to mythical beings to old heroes. For many decades, patrons have been entertained by the wrestling matches of legends like Blue Demon, Rey Mysterio, La Parka, Santo, Mistico, Mil Mascaras and many others.
