According to my research -- which I guess began 25 years ago on the streets of the Mexican border town of Matamoros, Tamaulipas, when I was playing with "Santos" toys that my mom bought me -- Lucha Libre is awesome. What is essentially a telenovela with more punching, flying, muscles and masks rolls into town this Friday as the Lucha Libre USA Masked Warriors Tour makes a stop at the Bayou Music Center. I spoke to two of these Masked Warriors at the only place in Houston that I deemed worthy of their presence: El Gran Malo (2307 Ella Boulevard).
Hair Balls: Señores, Bienvenidos a Houston!
Masked Warriors: Gracias, mucho gusto.
HB: Is this your first time here in the Space City?
Lizmark: We both visited Houston back in 1998, or 1999, while we fought with the WCW (World Championship Wrestling). We fought in the Astrodome, which was really cool.
