Lucha Libre in Mexico City

It turns out there are two places to see lucha libre in Mexico City: Arena Mexico, which was blogged about here, and Arena Coliseo.  Arena Coliseo, it turns out, seems to be a much better venue for las luchas that Arena Mexico; it’s smaller and places you a bit more on top of the “action,” and is cheaper, too, with the “best” seats going for about $10/140MXN.  Now, of course, it’s lucha libre, so it’s silly, over-the-top on the melodrama, and impossible to follow, but for the price, it makes an interesting excursion for visitors.  Plus, the beers are cheap.

Matches are usually held Tuesdays at 7:30pm, Fridays at 8:30pm, and Sundays at 5pm (and as they’re on TV, they last exactly two hours).  The matches vary between the two locations here, so, before going, it’s best to check it out here: http://www.cmll.com/ (en español).
