La Guererra
Once a young girl, La Guererra was shaped by a county being torn apart by the bombs and blasts of an enemy military that would not cease until there was nothing left to fight for. 
Over the many painful years during which her brothers returned home from battle only to be buried, she collected an arsenal of means to challenge the ideals of such a senseless and inexorable quest for power that only resulted in blood shed.
We are all in a fight for something. Constant battles for which there is no end. Fighting for peace is a conflict in itself, but in her struggle she realized the only words her adversaries speak and the only thing they perceive is war. 
She refuses to fight on their level. Although she is angry, she does not want blood on her hands, so she takes to the ring. A place where she can fight and her message can be heard through the booming battle cry of the crowds.

LA GRANADA
La Granada is proof that the quietest ones may turn out to be the most lethal fighters.
Introverted and secretive as a child growing up in Atlanta, she loved nothing more than reading, writing and painting. While she liked playing outside with the other children, she much preferred the magical worlds of books, arts and music. (Or, avoiding them in trees.)
In her creations, she was in charge. Because of her mysterious creative talents, she was taunted by the others in school, beaten up behind buses, notebooks destroyed, sheet music torn and pencils snapped. This continued for years. Misunderstood and enraged as a teenager, La Granada took her artistic angst to the streets as a graffiti artist, with only the moon as company.
One night, as she was snaking around fire escapes onto icy brick exteriors, mapping out a new mural in her mind, she was ambushed! Attacked by the same bullies in a drunken stupor who had threatened her all those years! But this time, La Granada was ready to exact her revenge. Dodging the law, rival artists and scaling fences had made her as strong and stealthy as ever. She dished out a butt kicking that the streets had never seen before, or since. 
But she knew she knew she had to flee. Durham, NC is known around the world as a hub for creativity, and she knew she would be safe here. She is always masked, in case the demons from her childhood manage to find her.
Her signature has become a small grenade, to remind all who see that eventually, the silent and powerful ones in this world may explode and destroy us all, if someone is stupid enough to pull the pin.

LA VENGADORA de PLATA
There was once a young girl named Georgina  from the village of Taxco in Mexico. Taxco produced the finest silver in Mexico and her family the most beautiful and sought after jewelry. Georgina had three sisters and a brother who helped their parents craft the beautiful jewelry Taxco was known for. Georgi, however, loved to be outside and every day walked for miles picking wild flowers, fruit, and herbs for her family and friends in Taxco.
One day, while Georgina was out picking fruit, a band of thieves came to Taxco to steal all of their silver. The thieves were marked with a tattoo on their face and threatened her family and neighbors with death if they did not turn over all their silver, money, and jewelry. When the villagers refused, the thieves began to burn the village down. When Georgina saw the smoke rising over the trees she rushed home to find her family trapped inside. She began kicking down the door and breaking windows but when she got inside, it was too late. Georgina held her family in her arms and wept. She stayed so long amidst the flames that she was severely burned.
Georgina vowed to stop the thieves responsible. She took up a luchadora mask and a new identity: La Vengadora de Plata. Traveling to faraway lands and surviving by fighting in matches, La Vengadora de Plata searches for the thieves responsible for her family’s suffering. La Vengadora de Plata fights for her family, for justice, and for revenge.

YES YES YES! LUCHADORAS 4 IS A GO!

Durham’s original masked warriors are taking to the ring again. The luchadoras, an elite group of female lucha libre wrestlers have kicked, punched, and grappled their way into the hearts of the Triangle. This November 10 at NOON they’re bringing their biggest event yet to the Durham Armory.

Bear witness to 5 matches packed full of lucha fury as the heroic tecnicas face down the nastiest, most evil rudas ever to curse the squared circle. Kid Vega takes on La Vengadora de Plata while the Norweigian Nightmare and La Abandonada battle newcomers to the ring.

In the main event, Juicy Buns and The Scrambler trade blows in the inagural championship bout for the title of Grand Supreme Luchadoras Champion. Although two enter the ring, only one will leave with the Luchadoras’ coveted belt.

100% of the proceeds from this family-friendly event benefit the NC DREAM team and Poder Juvenil Campesino, organizations chosen for the strength of their work with North Carolina’s immigrant youth.

Captain Pancho’s Tacos will be on hand with the very best tacos, burritos and platters in the Triangle. A $13 advance ticket gets you lunch and a drink from Capt. Pancho’s, a Luchadoras sticker, and entrance to the event of a lifetime!

Tickets are available at the door or by clicking the title of the post! In-person advance tickets will soon be available in select locations in Durham and Chapel Hill. Watch our Facebook for more info!

The Luchadoras took a break from kicking butt and stopped by Pride last weekend to show the love!

JUICY BUNS

Juicy Buns had always been a good little dumpling.  She was born in a Chirba Chirba steamer basket with with 10 other bun siblings.  Juicy, however, was uglier than the rest with too little chirb to be a real Chirba dumpling.  She was constantly teased for being dry and her siblings taunted her chanting “dry buns, dry buns!” until she couldn’t take it any more.  The ugly dumpling hitched a ride on a big yellow truck, where she harnessed her chirb to master juicy bun bomb booty blasts and use her chirb for good. This November 10 at high noon at the Durham Armory, she fights her best friend turned sworn enemy, THE SCRAMBLER, for the title of SUPREME INTERGALACTIC LUCHADORAS CHAMPION.
