NJPW Stars Unmask in the Ring at Over The Top Rope Powerslam:
El Desperado had a big match. He was part of the Best of the Super Juniors finals and he manhandled Hiromu Takahashi in a show-stopping victory.
Desperado removed Takahashi’s mask to reveal his face, but the wrestler decided to continue the fight.
On this occasion his face was revealed to the general public for the first time, shocking many who thought his malicious persona would never be showcased.
Despite his first-ever Best of the Super Juniors final, El Desperado was able to finish second. Takahashi was able to claim his second World of Pro Wrestling tournament win with his first coming in 2018.
Whether he chooses to remain unmasked remains to be seen, but in many cases putting your mask back on is poor etiquette.
