Now famous the world over, Lucha Libre is a one-of-a-kind experience of jaw-hanging, riotous fun that once seen, is never forgotten. Translated as “free fighting”, Lucha Libre is a Mexican style of wrestling where fighters enter the ring dressed in flamboyant capes and outlandish suits, wearing mythical and colourful masks, and performing acrobatic moves and flying from spectacular heights. Traditionally divided into Rudos, who use underhanded tactics and break the rules, and Técnicos, who play by the rule book and use more complex and spectacular moves, each Luchadore has his own distinct character. More than just regular wrestlers, Luchas are regarded as iconic legends and the superheroes of Mexico.


Throughout the events spectators can enjoy delicious and authentic Mexican street-food and feisty agave cocktails and tequila shots courtesy of Jose Cuervo. Don’t miss out on the chance to see Lucha Libre London, book your tickets today.
