The fourth of seven wrestlers in our Lucha Libre collection.
Lucha libre (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈlutʃa ˈliβɾe], meaning “Free fight”) is a term used in Mexico for a form of professional wrestling developed in the country. Although the term nowadays refers exclusively to professional wrestling, it was originally used in the same style as the American and English term “freestyle wrestling“, referring to an amateur wrestling style without the restrictions of Greco-Roman wrestling.
Lucha libre wrestlers are known as luchadores (singular luchador) (“wrestler(s)”). They usually come from extended wrestling families who form their own stables. One such line integrated to the United States professional wrestling scene is Los Guerreros.
