I’m infinitely grateful to the Virgin of San Juan for being able to participate, along with my idol Santo, the Silver Mask, in one of his classic movies “The Mummies of Guanajuato”. I was an extra and was hired to play one of the mummies. Although my face wasn’t seen because of the mask put on me and señor Santo hit me, I remained very happy for living this experience.

Give me strength, Virgin of Guadalupe, to continue with the wrestling so I can support my daughter.

The great wrestler El Santo thanks the Virgin of Guadalupe for delivering him from the evil that attacked him and wanted to take him away.

I bring the present retablo to the Virgin of Juquila thanking her for letting me dedicate my life to what I’m passion about—the wrestling. I thank for my successful career that was crowned that night when I won the mask of my arch-rival Avenger Bat Jr., earning the admiration of the audience and applause.

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