Gran Apache and Alfa are at the stands, with Alfa thanking Gran Apache for his help earlier. Gran Apache thinks that Alfa should go and marry Fabi, but Alfa isn’t so sure that it’s going to work, but Gran Apache thinks he should keep trying. Don’t worry I’m not talking you through the latest happenings from some obscure soap opera, I’m actually talking about Mexican Wrestling! Lucha Libre is a serious sport here, with the unmasking of a wrestler being a heinous dishonour!

In case you haven’t picked up on it yet, Mexican wrestling is pretty flamboyant and it is this flamboyance that makes it so entertaining and a unique side of Mexico to see. With the wrestlers being cruiserweight level, jumps and aerial maneouvures are all part of the fun as wrestlers swarm round the ring like those little Mexican ticks in A Bug’s Life. It’s quite odd watching such a silly spectacle in the throngs of a serious crowd who wait with baited breath as to how the match will be resolved but it’s an experience that’s definitely should be close-lined and put into submission!
