What’s a “luchador”? Here’s a definition off of Wikipedia…

Lucha libre (Spanish for “free fight”) is a term used in Mexico and other Spanish-speaking areas to refer to a certain form of professional wrestling involving varied techniques and moves. Outside of these areas, the term is synonymous with the professional wrestling performed in Mexico and other Latin American countries.

Mexican wrestling is characterized by rapid sequences of holds and moves, as well as spectacular high-flying moves, many of which have been adopted in the United States, and colorful masks. Lucha libre performers are known as luchadores (singular luchador).

Now, watch what happens when this everyday luchador’s roomie — whose name happens to be “Jesus” — comes back after break and wakes up luchador from his nap time…
