Lucha Libre USA: Masked Warriors Live
Mainstream America was long ago introduced to Mexican-style masked wrestling, better known as lucha libre. The style is known for its cartoonish characters — yes, even for wrestling — and extreme focus on acrobatic, superhero-esque moves. Today Lucha Libre USA is hosting Masked Warriors Live, a spectacular card for Houston fans. World-famous bad guy Lizmark Jr. will be defending the World Championship belt against newcomer El Nuevo Macho, and former World Wrestling Entertainment stars Chavo Guerrero (two-time Tag Team Champion with his uncle, the late Eddie Guerrero) and Mark Jindrak (now performing under the name Marco Corleone) meet each other in the ring. Also on the card is Shane “Hurricane” Helms, who had a brief stint as the WWE’s resident superhero. 8 p.m. Bayou Music Center, 520 Texas. For information, call 713-230-1600 or visit www.bayoumusiccenter.com.
