Masked wrestlers: an illustrated guide

A masked wrestler

The history of masked wrestlers goes all the way back to 19th century but masks are synonymous with Mexican wrestlers as part of the Lucha Libre circuit.

Gwendal UguenRussell Goldenberg, and Jan Diehm created a wonderful interactive for Pudding.cool detailing some of the greatest masked wrestlers from history including:

  • Blue Demon Sr
  • Abyss
  • Asuka
  • Jushin Thunder Liger
  • Super Liger
  • Mankind
  • Rey Mysterio Jr
  • Sin Cara Azul Sin Cara Negro
  • Mariposa

You can go through the illustrated list via a guided “story mode” or explore the masks by yourself. As of 11th May, there are 226 masks so hopefully more will be added.
