¡Nacho Libre! ¡Fray Tormenta!

You may have of the film Nacho Libre. In it Jack Black plays a Mexican priest who becomes a professional wrestler in order to raise money for his orphanage. When it came out I thought it was a strange and implausible premise for a film. Little did I know. I just recently learned that it was based on a true story. The real life Reverend Sergio Gutierrez Benitez did indeed wrestle as the masked luchador Fray Tormenta (“Friar Storm”) in order to support his orphanage. I’ll probably have to go rent it now.
