Fenix on how he tries to be like Rey Mysterio

Sep 24, 2018 - by Steve Gerweck

“You know, Mysterio is one of my favourite luchadors”, Fenix remarked. “And of course I want to be like him. So, of course the first thing I take from him is the mask. The first time I put on my mask, it’s incredible! (It’s) almost like an explosion in your chest, and you feel like a superhero. That is how the people look at you, like a superhero.

Fenix also touched upon the importance of the mask in lucha libre, and what the mask represents.

“For luchadors, it’s very important, because in Aztec culture, the Mexican culture, the warriors, the real warriors covered (their) faces to do war. So when lucha libre started in Mexico, people started to cover their face. So you specially design your mask, and when you make this (mask), you take a lot of pride in your mask.”
