1952, I left my work. When I was walking down an alley in San Antonio neighborhood in Puebla I was attacked by a man who seemed to be crazy. I implored the Virgin of San Juan, and then the wrestler El Santo The Silver mask appeared. He saved me, and I give infinite thanks for that.

I thank you, Virgin of Guadalupe, for all triumphs you granted to my wrestling idol—El Santo, The Silver Mask. I’ll keep telling his story because the art will never die.

I give thanks to the Virgin of Guadalupe for such a big favor. She made my son Javiercito’s dream came true. He had had an accident, and he was so sad sitting in his wheelchair and watching his favorite wrestler El Santo. Suddenly the wrestler came to him and gave him one of his masks.
