Lucha Fantastica AND Day of the Dead Fiesta - Canberra are proudly present for the very first time in Canberra: LUCHA LIBRE (Mexican Wrestling) WHAT IS LUCHA LIBRE? Spanish for "Free fight" - LUCHA LIBRE is a term used in Mexico for a form of professional wrestling developed in the country.
Mexican wrestling is characterized by colorful masks, rapid sequences of holds and maneuvers, as well as "high-flying" maneuvers. The wearing of masks has developed special significance, and matches are sometimes contested in which the loser must permanently remove his mask, which is a wager with a high degree of weight attached
