Romance will be airing in downtown LA on Valentine’s Weekend and more, it’s not romance, it’s a 300-pound wrestler flying off the top ropes, when Lucha VaVoom’s annual holiday-themed Mexican wrestling match is on February 11 Back on the 12th.

Dubbed “Amor Impossible,” the Valentine’s Day-themed Mexican wrestling weekend takes place at the Mayan Theater, where professional lucha libre wrestlers will perform death-defying and deadly moves. The weekend will also include burlesque shows and live music.

But as far as wrestling goes, expect slaps, kicks, body slams, mid-air moves, choking of all kinds, more slaps and kicks, and a lot of trash talk when these luchadores unwind in the ring.

The lineup will feature more than a dozen wrestlers fighting nightly, including the main event, a duo mixed match featuring El Paso resident Magno vs. Canadian-born Taya Valkyrie against Tijuana, Mexican-native Extreme Tiger and British-born Damafina .

But don’t throw all your love on one team just yet, because you’ll want to get to know these wrestlers before joining a tag team.

Here are some stats for each wrestler in the major matches.

Magno

high: 6’1”

weight: 210 lbs

How did you get your name?

“I started wrestling when I was 14, really young. I was at school and about to make my debut, so I took a dictionary and started looking for a name, and I found Magno, which means something great, something great things. It describes me.”

What is your signature move?

“I do a lot of high-flying from the top rope. But I usually do a corkscrew. That’s when you climb on the rope and you jump to your opponent, but you spin in the air. It just smashes them.”

Why are other wrestlers afraid of you?

“Because they know who I am. I can hit hard and I never back down.”

Predictions for upcoming games?

“It’s going to be a great thing, especially since we’re back after all these pandemic issues. Everyone was doing their best that night, but yeah, I’ve been holding on for so long, so I’m releasing Beast.”

What is your ideal romantic Valentine’s night?

“I’m married and have two kids, so I just take my wife to dinner and maybe buy her perfume or something.”

Taya Valkyrie

high: 5’7”

weight:”none of your business.”

How did you get your name?

“I’m from a Norwegian background, so Valkyrie as a female warrior decides who can survive and who can die and go into Valhalla, which I think fits my role very well.”

What is your signature move?

“My Terminator is the road to Valhalla. With your hands behind your back, I hold you all the way to the top of your head, and then I put you on your face.”

Why are other wrestlers afraid of you?

“I’m a ‘guera loca’ (crazy white girl) for a good reason. I earned that name in Mexico. My skills are unexpected and when you play with me, you never know who you’re going to see. “

Predictions for upcoming games?

“In the main event, you know I’m going to raise my hand at the end. I don’t care who Dama Fina is, I don’t care who her partner is, I know I’m going to take everything to win at Lucha VaVoom.”

What is your ideal romantic Valentine’s night?

“No limit? Then my husband has a helicopter waiting for me, and we’re going to the airport, then take a private jet to Paris, have dinner under the stars, and imagine the rest.”

Damafina

high: 5’3”

weight: “You can never ask a lady her weight.”

How did you get your name?

“It’s based on a song from a band called Titan,” she said. “It’s a really great song, and one that I’ve worked hard on.”

What is your signature move?

“White thorns. I basically roll up my opponent and hit them right in the face.”

Why are other wrestlers afraid of you?

“I’m a lot smaller than all the other wrestlers, but it’s the truth, they don’t want me to be as strong and fast as me. You know what they say about the big guys, the bigger they are, the harder they fall. Once I get them to stand up , they’re finished.”

Predictions for upcoming games?

“I don’t know if they’re ready for me. All these big guys think they can throw their weight around, but I’m faster, more nimble, and as soon as they get up, I slam them to the ground, So I hope they are ready.”

What is your ideal romantic Valentine’s night?

“I really enjoy eating some good Mexican food after smashing people in the face.”

Extreme Tiger

high: 5’6”

weight: 156 lbs

How did you get your name?

“I like extreme fighting and tigers. It’s an animal I like because of its agility, which is where its name comes from,” he said in Spanish.

What is your signature move?

“I have a couple of commits, like the Tijuana lock. I grab your left arm, lock your leg with my right leg, spin with my right arm, make you roll down with me, and then I put you Locked around the neck and made you submit. It’s hard to explain, but it suffocates your opponent until they pass out or surrender.”

Why are other wrestlers afraid of you?

“Shortness and lightness helps with my speed and accurate shots. I connect fast and hard, and that’s what makes me stand out.”

Who is the best tiger? Extreme Tiger or Tiger Woods?

“Each of us is the best in our sport, but in combat, I don’t think he knows contact sports, so it’s going to be an extreme tiger.”

Predictions for upcoming games?

“The extreme tiger will win, there is no doubt about that.”

What is your ideal romantic Valentine’s night?

“I love romantic music, so have dinner at a nice restaurant listening to romantic music. Of course the Supreme Tiger is romantic.”
