The card for a full night of matches.

When it comes to the storyline of lucha libre, it basically boils down to the age-old battle between good and evil. One one side, you’ve got the técnicos (good guys) who follow the rules and are loved by the crowd. On the other, you’ve got the rudos (bad guys) who often cheat and attempt to unmask their opponents. Most matches are de dos a tres caídas (2 out of 3 falls) and involve multiple competitors. There are parejas (2 on 2), trios (3 on 3), and atomicos (4 on 4) tag team matches in lucha libre.

The action is generally quite fast-paced, with plenty of high-flying aerial maneuvers. As far as the rules go, it’s quite similar to professional wrestling in the US. Matches end by pinning your opponent’s shoulders to the mat for a 3-count or making them submit. Sometimes, a match ends in a count out or disqualification.
