MEET THE NEXT BATMAN VILLAIN: C'mon, Dark Knight vs. Mascarita Sagrada. You know you want it.

Men in Tights

By Felipe Buitrago

A FIGHT IS a fight is a fight—it's how it's done that counts. And now with an array of video games selling us the coolest way to kick ass, combat has truly become an art form. Every culture has its own way of getting the job done, and when it comes to bringing an opponent to the mat, no one can imitate the style of Lucha Libre. These luchadores are capable of the most mind-blowing acrobatics, and they'll be here to show us how it's done. The Triplemania Tour hits San Jose with a fight card bringing your favorite luchadores to your back yard. Foremost among the four events, Electroshock will battle alongside Kenzo Suzuky and El Zorro in a three-man tag team event against La Parka, Cibernético and Chessman. Fighting heroines Mary Apache and Dark Scoria faces off against Faby Apache and Pimpinela Escarlata. And what would a full on invasion of Luchadores be without the little people? Macarita Sagrada and Octagoncito battle it out with Mini Abismo Negro and Mini Charly Manson.

AAA LUCHA LIBRE TRIPLEMANIA happens Saturday, July 26, 7pm, at HP Pavilion, San Jose; tickets $30/$70. For tickets and info go to For more info on your favorite luchadores en español, go to
