This strip exists because of a line in my notes that was a reminder to reference the awesome/annoying air horn chants that are common in Arena Mexico. If you haven’t watched any lucha, it’s worth finding some Arena Mexico (CMLL) stuff online just to hear the audience. Their chants are all accompanied by rhythmic air horn blasts that seemingly go on throughout the entire match. That felt like a very distinct lucha libre element, and I wanted to make sure it was brought up in some form during this story arc. The three key elements for this arc were a six-sided ring (a AAA thing), masks and apuestas matches, and trios matches.
