Mayan Luchadrome 2012 – El Santo Tribute
Telling stories is a rich human tradition in our Maya culture and sometimes they become very entangled with our experiences. We do not know why Lord Pakal Ahau asked us to write this post but we suspect he is evolving into an enigmatic creature with multiple memories at the end of 2012.
In the 60’s, he met a famous Mexican mask professional wrestler called El Santo, whose real name was Rodolfo Guzman Huerta. El Santo died on February 5, 1984 and both had a tremendous influence on each other. El Santo became one of the greatest legends in Mexican sports.
However, the story is more complex because Pakal became a fan of El Santo, and in his retirement on Pakal’s 32nd birthday he dedicated the event to Lord Pakal at the Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City. Santo died from a heart attack on February 5, 1984, at 9:40 p.m and as per his wishes, he was buried wearing his famous silver mask. In a same ritual as King Pakal was buried with his jade mask. We think this death wish is what made Pakal and Santo good friends forever.
The story continues with Pakal because Pakal’s body looks more and more like a young bodybuilder in his 30’s (I’m not kidding) and we think it is part of Pakal’s 2012 plan. Honestly, I’m envious of Pakal’s genetic in every sense. He is a superman gifted with a supermind. That’s why people who meet Lord Pakal become hypnotized with such human perfection.
To make this tribute short to Pakal’s friend, El Santo, we designed this t-shirt with El Santo mask but we added an unusual tattoo of the Virgin of Guadalupe in the skin body as Pakal instructed us. The model is very similar to Pakal’s body in actual age, believe it or not. To order this fantastic t-shirt, click here to go to our store.
