My favourite has to be Big Van Vader.
You're kidding right on the first one....if not that is Mil Mascaras probably one of the top three draws in Mexico all time, and a mega star in America during the mid 70's. He was an Apter mag darling. He fueded with Billy Graham for the WWF title, he pretty much owned Texas for a while, and he wreslted Mick Foley, in what Foley calls his worst match ever

The second one is Road Warrior Animal. And yes that is Dusty in paint behind him...they were the NWA six man champs for a while.

The third...i am pretty sure they were called the Mighty Yankees (?) but I am not 100% positive

And if not, can you recall wrestlers of the late 80's-early 90's that wore yellow masks?

And can you recall any managers that wore masks?

This is really bothering me because I vividly recall someone using an object in the mask to headbutt guys and I'm 80% sure it was a manager.
Well the Killer Bees of course but they were WWF faces.....

But I think I have your answer!

In the early 90's WCW did an event called Slamboree, this was their kind of tribute to the NWA old school. Some of the matches featured legends. The Masked Assasin who had just retired in 88 was brought on to announce some tv to promote the show. He was such a good heel announcer that he got a tv role as a heel manager and managed Paul Orndorff and others.....and he wore a yellow mask....!
