Blue Demon, era yo

Hosted by

The Blue Demon is one of the most famous Mexican wrestlers ever, boasting a decades-long career in the ring. And throughout that career, he was plagued – or was it bolstered? – by his arch-nemesis and frenemy, El Santo. An introduction to the world of Mexican wrestling through a poem that explores their infamous bromance.

The poem was read by José Galván in Spanish and Mario Saavedra in English. It was written by a poet who goes by the pseudonym Sir Black Lyon, and translated for this show by Connie Alvarez.
