Since opening wrestling-themed watering hole El Luchador in July 2017 on the city’s South Side, its owners have wanted to host wrestling events in their parking lot — just like their predecessor did when the establishment was known as Vaqueros.

“They would have wrestling shows outside many years ago,” said El Luchador co-owner Jesse Campos.

El Luchador will get its first taste of the turnbuckle when they team up with Santa Chinga Promotions and Hood All Starz Entertainment 210 for their first-ever wrestling show, which will feature a handful of wrestlers from the San Antonio area. As exciting as it might be to see some new blood in the ring, the featured guest for the evening is professional wrestler and actor César González, who played wrestling heel Ramses in the 2006 comedy Nacho Libre. González, known among the pros as the Silver King, is the son of wrestling legend Dr. Wagner.

Although Jack Black won’t be in attendance, González (as Ramses) will go head-to-head with a Nacho Libre ringer in a fight for all of Southtown. Also on the card for the official Hardcore Main Event: Chino Reyes vs. Kaientai.

$5-$10, Sat Nov. 3, 6:30pm, El Luchador Bar, 622 Roosevelt Ave., (210) 272-0016,
