In the early 2000s, a Mexican professional wrestler named “Crazy Boy” took a trip to check out an extreme, violent offshoot of the sport that was blowing up in Japan. When he got back, he started working to introduce the world of “lucha libre” to a fighting style with a little more edge—where wrestlers use knives, chairs, fluorescent lightbulbs, and high-risk maneuvers to leave their opponents as bloodied as possible.
VICE Mexico met up with Crazy Boy to find out how his own league, Total Ultra-Violent Disaster, or DTU, is spearheading the extreme pastime in his home country, catching a no-holds-barred match that left the ring covered in blood and broken glass.
