Lucha Libre (which is Spanish for wrestling) is a term used mostly in Mexico
to describe a form of wrestling using techniques mostly popular in Spanish cultures. Lucha Libre is professional wrestling throughout Spain
, Mexico, and most spanish speaking countries. Lucha Libre garnered attention in the United States when ECW hired several luchadores, including Rey Mysterio (originally Rey Mysterio, Jr.), La Parka, and Psicosis. WCW Monday Nitro would later feature many of the same luchadores on their program.
Lucha Libre style is most known for its fast-paced, rapid move sequences, a variety of holds, and great high-flying maneuvers. The easiest way to recognize lucha libre are the colorful masks worn by Luchadors, those who perform lucha libre.
Recently, lucha libre has been becoming more popular worldwide in pop culture. Jack Black
starred the the popular movie Nacho Libre, which told the story of a Mexican monk seeking to become a luchador.
The luchador masks were a collectible item in the game No More Heroes
