Ultimo Guerrero Clears Up Mask Confusion in AEW Collision Match

One big thing: Ultimo Guerrero explains unexpected mask appearance

Mexican wrestling legend Ultimo Guerrero addressed the confusion surrounding his masked appearance during the June 22 episode of AEW Collision, where he faced Kazuchika Okada in an AEW Continental Championship Eliminator Match.

The backstory:

• Guerrero lost his mask to Atlantis in September 2014 at CMLL’s Aniversario event.
• Fans were surprised to see him wrestle masked on AEW Collision.
• The match ended with Okada pulling off Guerrero’s mask before securing the victory.

What Guerrero said:

In a Facebook post, Guerrero explained:
• He arrived at the AEW taping without a mask, expecting to wrestle unmasked.
• An AEW worker quickly created a makeshift mask for him within an hour.
• Guerrero wore the mask out of respect for the worker’s effort and dedication.

Why it matters

This incident highlights the cultural significance of masks in lucha libre and the potential for miscommunication in cross-promotional events. It also demonstrates AEW’s ability to adapt quickly to unexpected situations.

Looking ahead:

• CMLL talent will participate in the upcoming AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door pay-per-view.
• Hechicero will face MJF in singles action.
• CMLL star and NJPW STRONG Women’s Champion Stephanie Vaquer will face TBS Champion Mercedes Mone in a Title For Title Match.
