366. Rayo De Jalisco

Before he was Rayo de Jalisco, Maximino Linares Moreno went through a few gimmicks and masks in the, but it was when he came up with the black mask with a lightning bolt that he had a winner.

As Rayo de Jalisco (The lightning bolt of Jalisco) he was a hero in that Mexican state (Jalisco) and a multi-time NWA Middleweight champion.  He was paired often with the legendary El Santo and the Blue Demon and won many mask vs. mask matches as well as appearing in many Mexican films.  He would lose his mask to his partner and rival, Blue Demon in one of his final matches in 1989. 

While he was not well known outside of Mexico, this is one of the most iconic wrestlers from that nation.
