NEWS OF THE WEIRD

Who Is That Masked Councilman?

Posted:

The Oita, Japan, city council refused to seat a recently elected member because he refused to remove the mask he always wears in public. Professional wrestler "Skull Reaper A-ji" said fans wouldn't accept him as authentic if he strayed from character. Some masked U.S. wrestlers, and especially popular Mexican "lucha libre" wrestlers, feel the same. At press time, the Oita issue was apparently still unresolved.
