Amnesia#4 Mistico

Mistico, a luchador, raised in the notorious Tepito district of Mexico City, has risen to a saint-like superstar status in Mexico, "El Corazon desenmascarado" translates as "The unmasked heart" A parody of the Sacred Heart, which is sometimes seen in Eastern Catholic Churches as a point of controversy and is seen as an example of bastardization from Western/latin Catholic church. Here its a Mexican cultural hybrid.
