This is one of the most authentic shows you will see in your life. Just keep in mind that Lucha Libre is not Wrestling. There is a wider context deeply embedded within the Mexican idiosyncrasy. Added to this, also keep in mind that Lucha Libre, Wrestling and Catch as Catch C. are SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT!
It won't be fancy, but it sure is entertaining! One of a kind!

We wanted to try the "Luche libre" which is like American pro-wrestling. Our biggest problem was trying to communicate with the attendant at the ticket office near the main entrance. You can talk to him but he was no where in sight. Better study the website and know what kind of seats you want to ease the interface problem. The location is not the greatest neighborhood but we did not have any problem.

Mexicans seem to really like this show. Lots of yelling,booing and everyone having fun. It should be more fun coming in a group. Plenty of beer sellers!

Not being used to this, we got bored after 15-20 minutes. Many good-looking ladies as presenters and later, as wrestlers!

Overall, worth experiencing it.

We went there on a Friday night to watch a Lucha Libre event. It was super entertaining. It was a rather large group of us, I believe it was a total of about 16. We're not from there and there were originally trying to charge us about 200 pesos per person for mid range seats. Luckily, we were with a couple friends that are from the city and they saved us from being jibbed - they went back up to the gentleman selling the tickets and told him it was outrageous and brought it down to 90 pesos per person, BIG difference. Lesson learned, always have someone that knows the city with you.

That incident is the only reason I giving this attraction 4 stars and not 5.

Other than that incident everyone was really friendly and it was an absolute blast!

Arena México is the place to see and enjoy one of the most popular and cherished mexican traditions, the Lucha Libre. Deeply rooted in the mexican culture, the luchadores are real superstars and superheroes for the mexican children and adults. The luchadores have starred movies and tv series. The plan is quite familiar, one can see families with kids since 5 or 6 years, fiancés in weekend plan. Outside the Arena there are a lot of stalls selling the most popular luchadores masks. The show includes at least five figths in triples or doubles, some female luchadoras that have becoming greatly popular in the last fortress of the most radical latino Machismo. Great experience, great show, full of enjoyment.
