Earlier this week during Monday Night Raw, Mexican superstars Sin Cara and Alberto Del Rio were involved in a wrestling match that saw Del Rio remove Sin Cara's mask.
The act was agreed to have been accidental, but some wondered if the previous "heat" between the two men had prompted Del Rio to take off Sin Cara's mask—a grave insult, given the context of the situation and both men's Lucha Libre background.
Sin Cara and Alberto Del Rio have known each other for years, having both been occasional tag team partners and opponents in Mexico, where they wrestled under the names of Mistico and Dos Caras Jr., respectively, for the country's oldest wrestling promotion CMLL.
Despite whatever backstage politics might be involved that has created some heat between the two men, Del Rio and Sin Cara usually have good chemistry in the ring.
Their matches in Mexico are exciting (and show why both men were top stars in the country), while their WWE matches still broadcast some of their previous talent.
