Default In Mexico, The Crowd Loves To Hate Pro Wrestler Who Plays Trump Supporter

http://www.npr.org/sections/parallel...rump-supporter


Sam Polinsky, known by his lucha libre wrestling moniker Sam
Adonis, enters the ring waving his Trump American flag and riling
up the audience in Mexico City.
James Fredrick for NPR


Quote:
In Mexican lucha libre — professional wrestling known for its masked fighters and cartoonish style — the bad guys rule. They're known simply as rudos.

"Mexican lucha libre is for rudos. We welcome any rudo who wants to come in here and be badder than the others," says Marco Espinosa, a fan, from beneath his souvenir lucha libre mask.

So it made sense for Sam Polinsky, a 27-year-old wrestler from Pittsburgh, to try his luck south of the border. He came to Mexico about nine months ago and branded himself as Sam Adonis, "El Rudo de las Chicas" or the "Ladies' Bad Guy."
The rest at NPR.
