After a quiet January, we were excited to see posters advertising another lucha libre event coming up on 21 February.
There was plenty of time to get the word out to friends and post details on the forums, with the result that more than 20 of our friends turned up at the Cancha German Evers in time for the proposed 7:30pm start. A large array of masks were on sale outside.
Quite a few children were wearing masks, and I even saw a young La Fantasma (the Phantom) in the crowd.
Eventually, a little after 8pm the luchadores for the first bout came in and presented themselves to the fans.
El Angel argued with fans after slamming the athletic Mercuris Boy on the floor.
Furia Extrema was popular with the fans.
Oops! Furia Extrema has got into a bit of trouble here!
Referee La Loca Lencha had his shirt ripped off after an unpopular decision!
Referee El Shaggy awards the bout to Wilber, Sparta and Sangre Maligna.
Rosabel was the hit of the evening. She danced erotically with her boa, lapdanced with a fan and poked fun at the macho luchadores.
Sargento Negro was working over Serpiente Marina against the rails outside the ring, when a fan offered him a metal chair.
Then Black Ninja took a turn at dishing it out to Serpiente Marina.
Black Ninja leapt onto the already downed Iroman.
Depredador posed for fans between bouts.
Spiderman and his sidekick worked together to crush Deprededor.
Iroman finally drew on his reserves of strength to pin Black Ninja to the floor.
This clinched it for the team - Iroman, Serpiente Marina and Spiderman were awarded the win.
Popular bad guys Depredador and Black Ninja posed for the ladies beside us after the bout.
The next bout started with a blaze of fire - Fire in the Ring! - from Black Abyss and Histeria, whom we remembered from last time.
In this bout, the referees were to attach "Bull Terrier" chains to pairs of luchadores. Mario Mora was the first to receive his and before long ended up in a bloody state. He repeatedly had his face smashed into a metal chair.
More punishment meted out by Histeria to Mario Mora. This time - the choke!
Meanwhile, Black Abyss was trying to break El Tiger's fingers.....
The bout dragged on and on, till underdog Mario Mora made a last effort to overturn the favorite and win.
Then it was time for the main bout. Relampago, the local hero, received accolades from the fans.
El Perico did a little dance to amuse the crowd.
El Hijo del Fantasma gave El Terrible a spanking!
At the end, Relampago posed for a photo before signing autographs for the fans.
