Trauma cultural, injustiça e prática de wrestling

Mexican Wrestling: Its Compensatory Function in Relation to Cultural Trauma

Abstract: The invocation of pre-Hispanic mythological deities contributes the necessary element for wrestlers to endow themselves with magical, supernatural powers with which they seek to mend injustice and defeat evil. The theory of cultural complexes described by Kimbles (Singer and Kimbles 2004) suggests a way of understanding how cultural traumas still reverberate in the cultural unconscious of Mexicans. Mexican wrestling fulfills one very special function going beyond sports; its theatrical performances symbolically compensate for decades of deep-rooted injustices.
