    Ole Lucha Libre, really?
    Ole is used in Spain
    Lucha Libre is from Mexico
    No connection whatsoever, never used in the same sentence…

    While the term “olé” originated in southern Spain as a shout of approval for excellent performance (kind of like “bravo, bravo”), its use has spread outside the Spain and bullfight contexts.

    In my opinion, the use here is simply saying “Great show, lucha libre.” It isn’t an authentic Mexican way of putting it, but simply Seth’s personal reaction, and as such seems fine to me.

    Interesting piece. Maybe I’ll need to check out the show next time I’m in Mexico City.
