Cholita Wrestling!

19 Aug, 2011 | Tim Deeks

On Sunday, I experience possibly the most surreal experience of my life. We had rushed back from Lake Titicaca to witness the phenomenon that is ‘Cholita Wrestling’ in El Alto. I had no idea what to expect…

Once we got over the cringe-worthily feigned nature of it all (WWF fooled me for years, but I picked up on the fact that this wasn’t real slightly quicker), we were treated to cholita-on-cholita fights, a man dressed in as a skeleton fighting a cholita and Spiderman versus a werewolf. But my personal favourite has to have been a midget and a clown fighting a hairy man from Chile with a biased referee!
