Does anybody miss the non-Lucha masked wrestlers?

As much as I enjoy Lucha Libre, I wish we had more masked wrestlers were in the vain of The Destroyer, Masked Superstar, Mr. Wrestling and The Patriot.

Any one else miss those types of masked wrestlers?

I don't consider myself a Mark or a Smark, just a Pro-Wrestling fan.

Masked Superstar was awesome. Mased guys were a staple of wrestling back then. Liked The Spoiler quite a bit too. The Giant Machine

Ive always found The Patriot to be quite an interesting character. I think more could have probably been done with him in the early/mid 90s when unironic patriotic gimmicks still generally worked.

Re: Does anybody miss the non-Lucha masked wrestlers?

My dad talks about this a lot. It would be cool to see stuff like that again, these big guys who wrestle like power houses and such wearing mask. It wasn't much of a thing once I was older and watching wrestling, or at least from the parts I can remember, but I seen old videos and old matches, etc. So I'd love to see it again.

Kendo Nagasaki from the old WoS days always comes to mind. I still remember how it was revealed he was a guy named Pete from Shropshire.
