Colón”, and "Parroquia de la Sta. Veracruz”. The ride will finish at "Arena Mexico” where you will
not only get a free mask and a shot of tequila, but you will also you live first person
and understand the culture of the wrestling art, explained by the guide.
Mexican wrestling began in 1840, one hundred years before it became an
official sport. The first wrestling’s took place in public squares, theaters, bull
rings, or any small "box ring” where fight demonstrations take place.
At the beginning of the 20th century, most of the wrestling promotor´s
were foreigners, for example the Italian Giovanni Resselech, who organized two
wrestling seasons in 1910, another example is the Belgian Constant le Marin,
who first made a presentation including a Mexican vs a Romanian wrestler in
1921. With this background and the
increasing popularity of this activity, the first wrestling function was made
on the "Arena Mexico” in September 21st of 1933, on the previously
called "Arena Modelo”
