The first wrestling took place in public squares, theaters, bull rings, or any small box ring where fight demonstrations take place. At the beginning of the 20th century, most of the wrestling promoters were foreigners, for example, the Italian Giovanni Resselech, who organized two wrestling seasons in 1910, and the Belgian Constant le Marin, who first made a presentation including a Mexican versus a Romanian wrestler in 1921. With this background and the increasing popularity of this activity, the first wrestling function was made in Arena Mexico on September 21st of 1933, on the previously called Arena Modelo.
