We went for a wander downtown a bit north of the Zocalo on Sunday as well, arguably into a not *quite* as touristy neighborhood (as one might have extrapolated from the pairs of cops standing at each intersection we walked through). But one bonus find on our excursion was the OTHER Lucha Libre venue, Arena Coliseo. We were momentarily tempted by an offer of front row seats for a pretty sweet line up (Dos Caras Jr., Maximo the gay luchador, AND girl fights), but instead decided to continue exploration. BUT, not until after getting a pic of me with two of the best luchador mascaras I’d seen as of late.
For those interested in a Lucha Libre match at Arena Coliseo in Mexico City, the fights are only on Sundays. The address is Republica de Peru #77, and the closest metro stop is Allende. If walking from the Zocalo, take Avenida Republica de Brazil north. However, I make no guarantees of finding kick-ass lucha-pigs like these.
