Legado Blue Demon jr by ArtBennyRGrau Legado Blue Demon jr by ArtBennyRGrau
I always liked El Santo and Blue Demon until one day I decided to see if I could find any cool B-movies with them. I stumbled uppon a talks how that had Blue Demon Jr.'s interview with El Hijo del Santo (who's a lil too obsessed with his dad, and I don't blame him). This interview made me admire the guy ( not the wrestling persona the person ) cuz of what he said about his biological dad, how he is able to forgive and forget and not hate the man despite of what he did since he did help Blue Jr meet Blue Sr and found his vocation. He survived a lot of hell in and out of the ring, like the skin grafts and several injuries sustained just to entertain the public.
I loved masked wrestling, not a big fan of the WWE though. I like "Lucha libre" but I decided I just HAD to paint him plunging into the unknown like hes gonna atomic elbow drop something fierce or something. Either way it was the coolest interview I've seen about wretsling where I was able to not snooze nor thing the guy is a douche. It was pretty hardcore what he said.
Either way from a fan of Lucha enmascarada to fans of the same.

Unfortunately, I think that El Santo was in a very, very crappy movie called something like "Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter" (I don't think that I've got the title right), which I would not recommend your watching. This is a lovely picture - a great tribute!!

that was probably his son =_=, sigh
no wonder I like Blue Demon better
the guy suffered through hell.
*beaten up and put in a box as a child by his dand and second foster dad ( Blue Demon Sr took Jr in after his friend "can you keep him?"l ike he was some pet, his mom was a complete bitch and her boyfriend wold put him in a wooden box as a kid , nails an dall when he came from school, he ran away one day covered in blood and bruises remembering where his dad Blue Sr lived and never left since. and he never hated his real dad, he thanked him cuz thanks to his choice was that he could become  amasked luchador, what he doesn't get to this day is how the hell a dad could give away a son like that I think he said " my wife is too green to raise him" something like that. He was also burned bu some dick luchador who threw chemicals and lit him on fire for a show, he had 3rd degree burns on his face, chest and arm, and a skin graft.  Blue sr suffered from a head injury, fell from a flight of stairs head first and twice he wrestled again till he died of a stroke in Bklue Jr's arms when a cop demanded he take his mask off n said "keep your daddy then".

That is an extremely touching story - he sounds like a courageous man.

Reminds me of Mil Mascaras - the wrestler in the 70s.

they have fought and worked together and vs each other :)
Mil Mascaras is still wrestling at his age, Mil mascaras also trained EL Santo's son.
:) Santo is Blue Demon's eternal rival.

they do tag teams but they don't wanna hang out with each other.
mil mascaras has a ton of masks he made them himself and designs for others.
My fave mask of his is one with an octopus featured in a movie with son of Santo.
"Enigma del mal" John Carradine hosted the movies made by Mil mascaras mostly.
