Smack Down!

19 March 2008

From Latin Americanist:

Super Mojado introduced himself yesterday as a hero for Southern California’s immigrant community. A local wrestling promoter said that Super Mojado will star in a charity bout this weekend with proceeds going to illegal immigrants who were detained in a recent raid.

I take it Super Mojado will be a tecnico. Will the rudo be “la Migra” or “Lou Dobbs”? Now that would be TV worth watching!

There’s a long tradition in luche libre of political and social activism. Previously, I’ve written on Father Sergio Gutierrez Benitez (aka Fray Tormenta) , and the transvestite gay-rights luchadores, Mi Flores and Po lvo de Estrlla.
