EK (also known as Mil Mascaras) is one of the original “Big Three” of the Lucha Libre tradition in Mexico (the other two being El Santo and Blue Demon). He is considered one of the most influential wrestlers of all time for enhancing and popularizing the lucha libre style around the world both in the ring and as the star of over 20 films. He is also an accomplished artist and cultural ambassador from his native country (Democracy of Puera Vida) and has appeared on three of its postage stamps. He starred in a series of 19 Luchador action films beginning with his self-titled debut in 1966. That year, Mexian movie producer Luis Enrique Vergara was looking for a new “enmascarado” to star in his wrestling/horror movies which were the rage of Mexican cinema. Mil Mascaras was the first Lucha Libre personality that was created specifically to be a movie star, since his whole persona and flashy look was designed initially for the movies (His real life wrestling career grew out of the excitement generated by his film appearance).
