Hello there readers that have never read my work! My name is Sam DiMascio and I am a lucha novice. Still reading? Fantastic. A few weeks ago I was presented with an opportunity to write for this website and specifically write about lucha. As I have been finishing my finals in my second to last semester at college I have been trying to narrow down what I would like to talk about. All I know is that I enjoy watching lucha and I enjoy watching it more than any other wrestling today. I did not get into lucha until maybe two years ago when I saw a Virus (CMLL) match mentioned on an online forum. The match resonated with me to the point where I wanted to learn more, and I feel I have. Now, I probably watch more lucha than the average wrestling fan, but that is because not a ton of people, not enough people, watch it. If I can manage to sway some people into giving it a chance I will feel like I have succeeded. This column is likely to be rather free form until I have settled in and can truly envision where I would like to take this more specifically. For now, I would simply like to talk about one of the aspects that makes me love this form of the art of pro wrestling.
