– To celebrate the Mexican Day of the Dead, this weekend’s episode of WWE Saturday Morning Slam looked at luchadores so WWE finally aired the Sin Cara vs. El Local match that was taped several weeks back. For those who have missed it, El Local is Ricardo Rodriguez working under a mask.
Cara and Local have been wrestling each other on WWE’s current tour of Europe as well. It’s been reported a few times over the past year that WWE officials were talking about having Ricardo wrestle more often, under a mask. Before signing with WWE, Ricardo wrestled as masked wrestler Chimaera on the independent scene.
A fan on YouTube put together the following highlight video from El Local’s WWE TV debut:
This week’s episode of Saturday Morning Slam also looked at other masked wrestlers such as La Parka and Juventud Guerrera from WCW.
