(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Dozens of Mexican lucha libre wrestlers donned their signature masks Thursday (August 17) for their annual pilgrimage to the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City where they paid tribute to the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Wrestlers, promoters, technicians and others associated with the "Triple AAA" professional lucha libre wrestling promotion took part in the pilgrimage to thank the saint for all she had done for their sport over the past year. Fans lined the streets of Mexico City to catch a glimpse of their favourite wrestlers including "La Parka," "Lince," "Chessman" and "Psycho" as they made their way through the city on an open top bus on their way to the basilica in the north of Mexico City. The masked wrestlers took part in a mass upon their arrival where they celebrated the 23rd anniversary of their organization and remembered members who had died over the past year.
