Mexican wrestling began in 1840, one hundred years before it became an official sport. The first wrestling’s took place in public squares, theaters, bull rings, or any small “box ring” where fight demonstrations take place.

At the beginning of the 20th century, most of the wrestling promotor´s were foreigners, for example the Italian Giovanni Resselech, who organized two wrestling seasons in 1910, another example is the Belgian Constant le Marin, who first made a presentation including a Mexican vs a Romanian wrestler in 1921.  With this background and the increasing popularity of this activity, the first wrestling function was made on the “Arena Mexico” in September 21st of 1933, on the previously called “Arena Modelo”
