Deliberate mistake: Several of the matches Nacho loses, he should actually have won. In Mexican pro wrestling, it is illegal to rip another's mask off, and results in immediate disqualification. This happens twice to Nacho, both in the fight with the midgets and in the final against Ramses.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Nacho is supposed to beat up the guys on his date with the nun, he's stretching by the wall. He sees two guys coming and jumps over to grab her.

Deliberate mistake: In the final fight, Nacho pins Ramses outside the ring. Under Lucha Libre rules, a pin must take place inside the ring to be valid, so Nacho would not have won a bout this way, and the announcer did not mention anything about there being any special rules or stipulations for the match, such as "Falls count anywhere".

Question: What is Ramses drinking at the party?

Answer: The drink Ramses is holding appears to be a dark red beverage with a white, foamy head. Granted, it could simply be a very dark beer; but there are numerous frothy drinks in Mexico, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. However, given the color of the beverage and the fact that it's a party, I believe what Ramses is drinking is called a "Mexican Cloud," which is considerably stronger and more festive than beer. The red drink itself is made with tequila, pomegranate juice, rhubarb bitters and agave syrup. The foamy head is mixed separately, made with liqueur, egg whites and lemon juice, frothed by hand and carefully poured atop the drink to create the "cloud" for which the beverage is named.
