* The mask is also closely related to the CharlieBrownFromOuttaTown angles, where a banished/disgraced wrestler returns with a not-very-disguising mask under a different name to try to "clear" the banned wrestler (ie himself)'s name. Longtime fans still debate the ''least'' effective masked identity ever: [[Wrestling/DustyRhodes The Midnight Rider]] or [[Wrestling/AndreTheGiant Giant Machine]]. [[Wrestling/HulkHogan Mr. America]] wasn't highly regarded either.
