Very cool and fun show. We bought advance tickets for an event on Friday to guarantee our seats, but when I got there I saw that it was still possible to buy tickets on the spot. The only cons is that from the beginning to at least 1h of duration, it is common for people to spend the whole time passing in front of you blocking the view, either because they arrived late or because they are going to buy some food. They don't allow you to bring a bottle of water and the beer inside cost about 100 pesos (glass of about 430ml)

La Lucha Libre - what a blast! We took a group of 6, including a 4 year old and 6 year old, and everyone had so much fun! The two kids both called it the highlight of their trip to Mexico City. It has everything you could want: athletics, showmanship, and all sorts of drinks, snacks, and concessions roaming the aisles.

We did buy our tickets ahead of time from Ticketmaster Mexico because I wasn't sure what availability would be like. There was a will call window right in front of the arena (even labeled in English) where we just had to show the confirmation number, photo ID, and credit card used to purchase to pick them up. We did this about 10 min before the scheduled start time.

My advice after visiting though would be to not buy ahead of time. There were tons of empty seats available even after the start. Don't pay a tour group or Ticketmaster markup. Just show up in an Uber and buy your tickets right there. The line was simple to find even if you don't speak Spanish, and not very long; the will call line actually wasn't much shorter. After the show, the street directly in front of the arena is pretty hectic, so walk a block down to a cross street and call your Uber from there. The one mistake we did make: they don't allow large cameras, so we had to check ours at the door. Best to leave them at home. Cell phones and small cameras were fine. Our camera was easily retrieved from the checked items window after the show though, no big deal.

I do not like the American version of wrestling at all. This on the other hand was a blast! The Lucha libre wrestlers are super entertaining and the atmosphere is all around fun. Don’t worry about taking a tour or buying your tickets ahead of time. Just go to the stadium about an hour before the show starts, buy your tickets at the ticket window then check out all the vendors selling merchandise outside the stadium. Lots of great deals to be found including some really cool shirts. We were about five rows away from the ring and near the aisle. The seats were great but being near the aisle the vendors can be annoying at times because they constantly walk around, usually in front of you selling their items. There’s dozens of vendors selling everything inside from Ramen noodles to big cheap beers. The shows are at least two hours long. After the show there’s still vendors outside selling stuff in case you didn’t buy before hand. It’s easy to get an Uber or taxi right outside the door but Uber‘s are a lot cheaper than the taxis. The area is very safe at night too so don’t worry. We had a great time and would highly recommend coming here for some fun entertainment.

I was privileged enough to be in town and see a lucha show here. It was a dream come true. Everything was super easy and convenient. Only issue is inside, ushers only exist at the entrance, so finding seats is difficult and if they show you where your seats are you must pay them. It's really absurd. Otherwise its a great place to see lucha. Concession prices are fair.

With little or no interest in wrestling, my daughter and I decided "When in Mexico, do what the Mexicans do" and we decided to visit the Arena Mexico. We purchased our tickets a few days prior, directly from the office box at the arena. I paid MX$600 for two tickets and we had great seats, close to the action and with unimpeded view of the entire arena.

The atmosphere truly was electric. People were shouting, clapping, booing and cheering as if rehearsed like the wrestling itself. There was a lot of noise, music, announcements and, most of all, LOTS of action.

There were only downsides to our experience, both are easily avoided with a little knowledge. Firstly, arrive early. There was a very large crowd at the entrance and security were checking bags and patting people down. Because of the physical contact, they split the entrance lines into male and female groups so you were patted down by the appropriate security person. The second issue was getting beer. I walked from our seats to a bar I had seen upon entering the arena. They had a menu of Clamatos, Chilada's, Michelada's etc. The line moved slowly, mostly because of the disorganised groups of tourists in front of me. The good news is they were making every drink to order and there was a choice of beers. Our drinks were fantastic and we enjoyed them. Upon returning to our seats I discovered there are people who will get your drinks for you. They can be identified by their white shirts and wearing a yellow card with a number on it.

I recommend this activity for all. Lots of action and harmless fun. By your tickets early because they will sell out.

This is so much fun. Splurge on seats close up (still not very expensive) and just enjoy the show. We loved the theatrics and the whole scene. The skills of the wrestlers are uncanny, you won't believe your eyes. I'm not usually into stuff like this but I loved it. We were a group of 14, age range from 70 to 13 and everyone had a blast.

Arrived to mexico arena on my own 45 minutes before the show and managed to find row 1 tickets for 250 pesos. The show is fun, but the vendors pushing sales of beer and drinks and food and screaming passing up and down just be a nuissance. Finally everyone was using their mobiles taking photos and videos but for some weird reason i specifically got targeted by a security guy and he kept mollesting me checking me up all the time if i was gonna take the phone out of my pocket. I told yhe guy look at the other side all are rexording on the phone what,s your problem ? He really spoiled it foe me and i left early. Security are rude and aggressive for some reason.

Lucha libre is such a fun experience- definitely one of the highlights of our trip. The lucha libre matches are held Tuesday and Friday nights. We were concerned about whether we needed to book through a tour group or buy tickets beforehand on Ticketmaster, but definitely no need to do this. We arrived at the arena about 45 minutes early and with our limited Spanish skills, were able to buy great seats with no issues. Spent about 225 pesos for great seats in the 4th row. The lucha libre wrestlers are hilarious and you find yourself picking favorites and cheering (or booing), and definitely laughing throughout the whole night. This is a must-do event while in Mexico City and so much fun!

Lucha Libre is a must-see in CDMX. I prefer Arena Naucalpan - it's smaller and older, but so much the better. The action is up close and the experience is undeniably in your face.

Buy your tickets through a tour company (there are several companies that specialize in tourist group visits - they lay on a bus and take care of the tickets: all the action, none of the hassle) or at the door (in my experience friendly helpful people who speak little English but will make it all work).

Avoid Ticketmaster at all costs. Terrible website, horrendous service, big service charges.

We wanted to experience as many different activities as possible while in Mexico City so along with the more high brow cultural stuff, took in Lucha Libre. It was super fun. Great excuse to yell, boo, clap, cheer- the works. People watching as much fun as watching the wrestlers. You can get tickets the day of and don't need to go with a tour unless you want to. If you can get the tickets before the show it will be less crazy. We got them just before the show started and it is noisy, and the ticket boots are really dark so you can't see the agents or exactly where the seats are. Our seats weren't that great but we still had fun. Rows 4- 10 are probably the best, and not on the sides as the vendors will block your vision at times.
