    Lucha libre :)
    We went to the Lucha Libre at the Arena Mexico in July. I was worried about safety, however it was a great experience to attend an event like the lucha. Perfectly safe. We took Uber there and back to the Condesa neighborhood We bought the cheap tickets and we were able to see perfectly.

    So much fun
    I'm not a wrestling fan, but this was really fun. We went to the 8:30 PM Friday evening show. Arrival via Uber was chaotic via streets that were packed. Make sure you allow enough time (Google maps underestimated). We waited in a very long line for ~15 minutes to purchase tickets, ignored people trying to sell tickets on the sidewalk. People in line were polite, friendly (as everywhere in CDMX). A lot of families, some children. The ticket booth was unusual. It's a mirrored window with a very small space at the bottom that you're supposed to talk through. If you don't speak Spanish, learn the phrases to order. It will make your life easier. We got SRO tickets at $50 MXN (~$3 US) each. It required that we leave the main entrance, walk around to the back, and climb a lot of stairs. Security guards hand search you, as well as any bags at all entrances. We were very high up (not as bad as US nose bleed seats), but could still see everything. The other tickets were $220 MXN (~$13 USD). If we return, I would get the $220 MXN as we had so much fun. We felt very safe throughout. We walked several blocks away to order an Uber. I would 100% go again.

    A Must-Do CDMX Experience!
    This is an incredibly fun experience regardless of how much you know about lucha libre. The immediate area around the venue is safe and lively. There's a bar across the street as well. The tickets are reasonably priced, around $35 for the closest seats. There will be about five matches, with the last one having the biggest stars. They usually wrestle in teams. Each luchador will be introduced and come down a ramp before entering the ring. Usually there are heels and heros. It's a show, not a sport so just have fun and watch the spectacle. There's some real athleticism to the moves. Inside, you'll find snacks like popcorn and chips, along with soda and micheladas. I had a clamato beer that I enjoyed as well. They take cards so you don't have to bring cash. They stop selling alcohol when the last match starts, so plan for that. It's worthwhile to shop the booths outside to buy a shirt, lucha mask, or hat. The prices are affordable and some accept cards. Just make sure if you're paying in USD they give you the right change. As other reviews have noted, you'll want to take an Uber or taxi directly to the venue and back, as it's not recommended to walk around here as a tourist.

The evening was well spent. Lots of fun!
Get tickets early and choose great seats, cheer on a favorite, and watch some solid acrobatics.
Cash is king here (2 beers were 120).

This arena seems to me it is catered for tourists, I prefer the arena coliseo as it has a better feeling of a neighborhood. This is ok if you like to experience wrestling in a touristy atmosphere.

Mission accomplished! It took me 53 years but I finally saw lucha libre at the Arena México. In 1970 an uncle tried to get me in but because I was 10 I was considered underage and kept out. I still remember that main event: Santo, Blue Demon, Rayo de Jalisco v. El Solitario, Angel Blanco, Dr. Wagner. On August 13, 2023, my wife, cousin, and I went to the 5:00pm Domingo Familiar event. Tickets were $350 pesos per person. We showed up at the box office at 4:30pm and bought our tickets. Politely ignore the people just outside the box office trying to "help" you by selling you their tickets. The lucha libre-related trinkets for sale are cool. After you pass the arena security and go inside there are people who'll show you to your seat. Say yes or no. We said yes and gave the guy a few pesos. There are clean bathrooms and food & drink vendors that come around. I was pleasantly surprised at the number of women and tourists. After 1970 I went to lucha libre in other venues in the CDMX and it was strictly men-only. The lucha libre itself was worth the 53 year wait. I know it's a show but I love it especially when the luchadores launch themselves outside the ring. And the lovely lady dancers were lovely.

Entertaining experience. A great way to experience CDMX, even if you only go once. Shows are about 2 1/2 hours long and feature 5 different matches.
Ticketmaster now offers electronic tickets, BUT if you select this option as an international traveler it is essential that you have phone service/data plan. Arena Mexico ticket agents will only accept the tickets if you are logged into the Ticketmaster app (Screen Shots or paper print outs are not acceptable).

We went to a Friday night Lucha Libre match. We knew zero about the sport, but had a lot of fun anyway. It's very different from wrestling in the US. The audience is very into the matches and that's a big part of the fun.

Our group (two adults and three teens) went to see Luche Libre on Friday, December 30. It was great fun and very easy to do on your own. We read other reviews and were planning to buy tickets at the stadium before the event. However, about a week before the event while still in the USA, on Ticketmaster saw that about the first six rows all around the stage was purchased. We went ahead and bought out tickets online. We had to choose Will Call rather than the print at home option because you had to wait 48 hours before you could print and by then we would be in México (where we did not want to hassle finding a printer). The day before the event I checked Ticketmaster and saw that all the seats on the floor and the next level up were all sold. Only the upper balcony seats were available. The early afternoon of the event, we dropped in to the Ticketmaster Liverpool Centro (C. de Venustiano, fifth floor) to get the tickets but it was closed. We were then going to get them at the arena but at around 5:30pm we read the pickup instruction and found out that you cannot pickup at the event site. We rushed over to the Ticketmaster (Calz. Gral. Mariano) and joined a long line of about 30 people. Luckily it only took about 40 minutes - you just had to show the order # and an ID. We took an Uber to the area and got there about 45 minutes before the 7:30 pm start. Lots of vendors and did not feel at all unsafe. We ended up going into the arena and getting food there. We had a someone who us to our seats and tipped them 5 pesos. You can easily find the seats yourself but we think it is better to support the locals unless you are really tight on funds. Plus a couple of times, people had to move because they were in the wrong seats. We sat in Section Ring A, Row 8 which was great. There were lots of tourists who went. I think the section facing the stage 90 degrees from us might have been even better because the wrestlers seemed to face that section most times when doing their entrances and celebrations, However, our section had fewer seats in each row so it was easier to get out for food or restrooms. You can buy all food and drinks from venders coming to your seats. Not sure if they took credit cards. We also bought food at the food stand outside of the seating area where you can use credit cards. It was great fun. Pretty over the top but entertaining. Most people were not wearing masks so don’t tell you need one. Female dancers were wearing full body suits so it it was not overly sexist. We had three teens with us who spoke Spanish and they said lots of profanity was used but the non Spanish speakers of the group were oblivious. It was loud but not overly so. Lots of families with young kids attending, Easy to get an Uber once you walk a little instance from the arena.
