He is a Canadian guy pretending to be a Mexican luchadore. Thats his gimmick. Its kind of a joke gimmick but he makes it work, kinda like how only a guy like The Undertaker can make a Undead Zombie badass gimmick work for a whole career without it feeling like a joke.
i'm a little out of touch with Wrestling but he might be the best sympathetic babyface on the planet right now which is amazing concidering the fact he wears a mask that obscures his facial expressions and has to rely on body language and whatnot.
