Like good poker players, good wrestlers know when to hold them and when to run, shout, and hit their opponent with a chair. Learn the finer points of the ancient sport of grappling with today's Groupon to Lucha Libre USA's "Masked Warfare" on Saturday, June 18 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Albuquerque.

Lucha Libre USA stirs American audiences with live performances bursting with staples from classic Mexican wrestling, such as luchadores who fly through aerial acrobatics, don elaborate masks, and enact spandexed drama, which can currently be seen on an MTV Networks' series. Before the nine body-slamming, chair-flaying matches, the preshow party allows spectators the chance to mingle with Lucha Libre stars, including RJ Brewer and the Right Federation, who dealt multiple-time champion Lizmark the ultimate insult when they forgot to invite him to their tea-and-biscuit discussion of The Joy Luck Club. At 6 p.m., the show begins, and MTV begins taping for its series, providing audience members the chance to appear on the famed network. VIP ticketholders sit near ringside and are invited to an exclusive meet-and-greet after the show, where stars will sign autographs, take photos, and share icepacks with VIPs.
