I, Gregorio Pech, infinitely thank the Virgin of Guadalupe for saving me from the mermaids’ charms so I was able to get back to my kids.

At the end of the year, in my lands, I met a stray dog, in which I saw bad intentions. It was approaching to bite me. As I saw its fangs, I prayed to the Lord of the Lightnings, who seeing me playing on guitar heard my prayers and protected me.

My sister Maria and I were swimming in the open sea near the beach of San Javier when suddenly the water under us became dark and enormous tentacles came out of the sea. Our anxiety began when we saw the creature they were belonged to. It grabbed us with a violent move and drowned us like rag dolls. Seeing this, I prayed very hard to the Virgin of Guadalupe for help and rescue. After we almost fainted, the beast let us go, and we could go back to the shore. I testify this miracle.

On my vacation at the Caribbean in Mexico, I was swimming when I felt something was pulling me down to the bottom of the sea. To my surprise I saw this creature pulling my by my Holy Virgin chain. I prayed the Virgin for miraculous favor and could escape without being hurt.

Thank you, Virgin of Guadalupe, for all my triumphs and for helping me remain healthy. But, above all, thanks for all my colleagues who, although I was a foreigner, supported me and made me a better person and wrestler.

Summer 1974, I was on vacation in Tokyo when something extraordinary happened. The night of July 26, an enormous monster attacked the city. A giant reptile of huge size was destroying everything on its way sowing death and terror. Seeing this, I could only ask the Virgin of Guadalupe for intervention, and some time later Godzilla got lost in the sea.

I wholeheartedly thank the Virgin of all Mexicans for being so good to me. She’s been with me in the good moments and in the bad ones protecting me from injuries and dying on the ring. Thanks for looking after me, Holy Mother.

The Carrion sisters were passing by the market when suddenly they an enormous creature appeared to them. It seems like it came from the inferno, with a red hair, big claws and teeth, enormous blue eyes filled with evil and fury. When we started to ran away and scream we implored the Brown-skin girl of Tepeyac to protect us and let us come out alive from this misfortune. That moment the beast stopped chasing us, we ran to the church doors and took shelter there. They say they call this demon chupacabra in the region.

I thank the Holy Heart of Jesus for giving me tenacity and strength to win over my opponent in the fight for the national title. Also, I thank for letting me and Broncas come out safe from the fight to go on with the most beautiful sport.

A giant spider used to build his web over my bed every night, and it looked me down with its devil eyes. At the mornings there was no spider. I cleaned up the web, but the next night it started all over again. Finally, after many prayers to Saint Barbara, I had a dream in which the saint pierced the spider with her sword. So the next night the spider didn’t come. I thank for that.

I thank the Virgin of Guadalupe for the favor she granted us the last summer when we were at the Caribbean. My children Renato and Mateo were swimming near the beach but suddenly they disappeared from my sight. In despair I implore the Brow-skin girl, and they managed to escape from the attack of monstrous octopuses.

Almost all women in our family have beards. That’s why my sister and I grew up as circus freaks and married ugly men. We got tired of our destiny and began to perform as dancers. We shaved, we divorced, and we have great success. We thank the Virgin of San Juan.

Calixto Santiago and his wife Carmencita were on their way to the town for milk when an enormous shining flying saucer came out from behind a mountain. They ran away from this big thing, but the saucer chased them and beamed them with light. They implored the Guadalupan for her intervention, and the object submerged in Zumpango lake not to come out.
