Masks


Recommended Posts

Hi People,

 

I just watched a Best of WCW Cruiserweights tape, which of course featured many mexicans.

 

I know that the mask is something sacred in mexican wrestling, but why do they wear them? they look complete idiots, especially the masks with fake hair.

 

Now, this was not meant to offend anyone, I just wanted to know why they wear them?

 

Also, how come Juventud Guerra (SP) was frowned upon for losing his mask to Jericho?

That pretty much says it all :) And it may have been frowned upon cos Jericho isn't a mexican or something like that. I dunno

Well, you gotta say that Rey became very popular after he lost his mask (at least among the US audience), and the opposie was true of Juvi. Why was this?
