No!

lf we win, we get 200 pesos!

Chancho!

Chancho!

Chancho, I need to borrow

some sweats.

Are you leaving us?

No, Chancho, I would never leave you.

I just need to borrow some sweats.

NEW WRESTLERS TOURNAMEN

His hair. We bet his hair.

What?

You can take the Stallion.

I'll take the Pony.

I can't wrestle him.

But you are tall and fast like a gazelle.

You can do it.

Pray to the Lord for strength.

I don't believe in God,

I believe in science.

You have not been baptized?

Hey. How you doing?

He's good.

Hello!

I'm talking to you. I will come.

Save me a piece of that corn.

Save me a piece of that corn for later.

Hey. Take it easy.

Come on, Esqueleto!

Okay.

No problem. We are dancing.

That didn't hurt!

And then I disappear!

Taste it. Yes! I'm going to pull you.

The shoe!

Anaconda squeeze.

Okay.

Nacho! Nacho! Nacho! Nacho! Nacho!

Semental! Semental!

Semental! Semental!

Those guys were

a couple of wussies, huh?

They scalped my hairs, okay?

-I look hideous.

-Come on, baby.

And you gave them permission

to hurt me like this.

But I couldn't have anybody see

my face, Steven, come on.

Tonight,

I felt something deep inside me,

I've never felt before.

Do you remember that one time

when everyone was shouting my name

and I used my strength

to rip my blouse?

Yeah.

And I saw them

knock you unconscious, all right?

What's this?

It's money. What did you think?

But we lost.

We all get a piece.

Listen,

the people, they like you guys.

Come back next week,

and I will get another fight for you.

Chancho.

When you are a man

sometimes you wear stretchy pants

in your room.

It's for fun.

Don't worry. I won't tell nobody.

I'm a little concerned right now.

About your salvation and stuff.

How come you have not been baptized?
