Wearing masks isn’t just a once-a-year occurrence for the luchadores of Lucha VaVoom, in fact these wrestlers don their masks every time they step into the squared circle. Lucha VaVoom is hosting a special event, “Night Of The Vampire,” this Wednesday at the Mayan Theater on S. Hill Street. The show is described as, “A Halloween spectacle of Mexican masked wrestling & saucy striptease.” Comedians Blaine Capatch, Bobcat Goldthwait and Dana Gould will also be on hand for comic relief breaks in-between matches. Eric Idle from the original cast of Monty Python says, “There’s no show that’s funnier, sillier or more entertaining than this one.” The show starts at 8:00 p.m. and tickets are available through the official Lucha VaVoom website.
