Description
The young man knows he would be a natural at professional wrestling, and with his father's help he might even reach the same level of fame and success. But the Angel of Death, retired from the ACW and running a wrestling promotion and school, refuses to train his son for fear he will choose sports entertainment over a college degree. Jesse decides that once he gets settled at UT, he's going to look for another place to wrestle. To keep his father from finding out, he'll promote himself as a masked luchador from Oaxaca, Mexico, named M.scara de la Muerte. When no one will hire him, Jesse reluctantly considers joining a lucha libre organization, even though he doesn't speak Spanish. Will the fans and his fellow wrestlers see him as a luchador-or just a gringo with a mask?
