The year’s wrapping up, and in the world of professional wrestling, journalists, fans, bloggers, etc., will be declaring their wrestlers and matches of the year. However, here at Cheap Pop Culture, I’d rather give you a breakdown of all the times pro wrestling reared its red-headed step child head in the world of pop culture. So enjoy the second annual of The Year of Wrestling in Pop Culture.
Title: El Chavo Animado
Bio: Disillusioned with the current state of lucha libre, and the fact that he doesn’t want to end up a broken and withered old luchador, El Justiciero decides to retire. But then he returns to the ring five minutes later to retain his stronghold on the Lucha Libre Championship.
Signature Move: Retiring then returning to the ring, like most retired wrestlers.
