Saint Teresa of baby Jesus, thank you for helping me to recover. One moths ago I was attacked by a robber on the street. I fell and injured my back. Later I was called to join the Mexican wrestling team. At the ring, I felt my spine cracking. It was so painful, and I might have remained paralyzed. But thanks to the surgery I’m good.

I thank Saint Benedict for helping me to keep my great secret. In reality it’s my wife who is the boss in our house and I’m just a henpecked husband. If somebody found out, it would damage my tough image among the fans and I’d be a joke for my fellows wrestlers. I bring this humble retablo.

I was selling cold beer at the wrestling arena. I was distracted and didn’t noticed that the wrestler Superpig jumped off the third rope on his opponents but almost fell on me instead. I thank Saint Charbel because I stepped away in time. Otherwise he would’ve squashed me and my bucket of beer.
