Lucha World at York Hall

“Because wrestling in York Hall is a once in a lifetime experience!” I protest, trying to explain why I am planning to perform at the Greatest Spectacle of Lucha Libre, then immediately flee 90 mins across London and out to Reading to play a guest show for Metal 2 The Masses.

“How many times have you wrestled here, now?” asks the promoter.

“…this will be the fifth. Even so!”

“Yeah yeah. I get it. A five-in-a-lifetime experience.”

Damn straight. I can’t see performing in York Hall ever getting old. There is just something about the place: you can almost feel the thousands of past events and fights, as if they have seeped into the wooden walls and diffuse into the air with every passing moment.

It being rammed with 700 screaming lucha libre fans certainly helps, too…

So it was, with my Lucha Britannia brothers and sisters, we opened two more shows at York Hall for the Greatest Spectacle of Lucha Libre, and challenged our Mexican brothers to tag team competition, too.
