You don’t have to be a gay dude to enjoy watching two grown, sweaty men roll all over the floor together—especially if they’re wearing angry clown masks. And that’s no slam on Mexican wrestling, which has been kicking the cajones off their international counterparts since the early 1930s with impressive aerial moves and complex submission holds—and, oh yeah, those sexy masks! In a nod to ancient Aztec culture and depicting a variety of animals, spirits and gods, the luchador mask is his prized possession, and if lost, is the greatest insult he can face, as well as a possible career-ender. So, grab a herd of screaming children and middle-aged men and find out if Misterioso Jr., Winter or Sancho Nation dares make the ultimate wager!
