Whereas his father valiantly battled mummies, vampires, and werewolves on the silver screen, Lucha Libre star El Hijo del Santo will soon be grappling with some unconventional foes of his own – namely, the mounting threats to the environment of Baja California.

Yes, like a sequined spandex-clad Al Gore, the son of legendary luchadore El Santo is teaming with nonprofit group Wildcoast to raise awareness of the contamination of the Tijuana River.

Garbage and sewage runoff from Tijuana slums have seeped into the river that separates TJ from San Diego. According to a Wildcoast study, three fourths of people who regularly swim in the ocean waters near the river basin have developed health problems, including skin and intestinal disorders.

El Hijo del Santo plans to follow up this campaign with an in-ring showdown against wrestlers disguised as various environmental threats, including the notorious and dastardly heel, SewageMan.

TheFeed hopes Santo’s crusade will serve as a springboard for other luchadores to use their assorted wrestling powers to tackle other important issues.

For starters, we can think of no one better than Rey Mysterio to help beat down the menace of securities fraud.
