“We’re extreme fighters, but we’re not violent. We already have too much violence in this country,” said Crazy Boy, head of a company that used to be called Total Ultra-Violent Disaster, or DTU in Spanish.
The fans want to see a type of wrestling that is different from Mexico’s traditional one, in which the fights are often more spectacle that real combat. “People come here to enjoy themselves, enjoy what they see, and they’re always asking for something more,” explained Crazy Boy to Reuters.
While extreme fights have become increasingly popular in the country, DTU has a lower profile than the more famous professional “Lucha Libre” circuit and tends to book smaller venues.
