The new wave of Colombian wrestlers and fans

'Lucha libre' or free wrestling is not a new activity in Colombia, but recently wrestlers and fans have become the centre of the attention in the capital, Bogota.

A new soap opera called 'Pobres Rico' (Poor Rich) has revived the interest in an activity which had its golden age in the South American country between 1960s and 1990s.
