Tom Savini Created Badass Mask Seen at WrestleMania 33

A huge episode of “The Walking Dead” aired last night, as did WWE’s annual WrestleMania event. You might be surprised by which one makeup master Tom Savini played a part in!

If you’re a wrestling fan as well as a horror fan, you probably know that Tom “Godfather of Gore” Savini is a big time fan of WWE – at a recent show in his home state of Pennsylvania, Savini was spotted sitting front row! Back in 2014, Savini had a hand in designing Triple H’s WrestleMania entrance gear, and this year he made another contribution that you might’ve missed.

One of the highlights of the 2-hour WrestleMania 33 kickoff show was the “Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal,” which put a handful of superstars into the ring at the same time for an over-the-top-rope elimination match. One of the wrestlers who briefly appeared in the match was masked luchador Kalisto; as it turns out, Savini and his team created Kalisto’s Mania mask!

Savini designed the mask alongside artists Jason Baker and Jason Adams. He may not be doing movies anymore, but it makes me happy to see that Savini is still kicking ass in other ways.

Check out the mask below.

    • El_Fez

      No, no – it’s not ‘you’re a moron’. It’s “Stupid idiot!”

      Please get your cues right in the future.

      Support Ring of Honor and Impact Wrestling!

      Also yes he kind of wasted his talents on a guy who was gonna get thrown out of the ring in five seconds. Cool mask though, reminds me of Rellik’s from Impact back around 2007/8.

      I would love to see what he could do with Erick Rowan’s sheep mask though.

      I will redirect you to this image of Toru Yano to demostrate how many fucks we give: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ffda4c2198308a19aee8e3c4ab91b9a32f2d5fce3066f8623b3a2ccc2792b4d4.png

  • Why couldn’t he do something for the Undertaker and Kane at Survivor Series 2015?

  • KennyThaKilla

    Nice mask. Savini’s still a prick, but nice mask.

    Although, if that’s silicone, I don’t imagine it’s going to last very long. Hope he has an ample supply like Batman.

  • Colin Christian

    It’s a bit of a rough sculpt,but it gets the job done I suppose.

  • El_Fez

    I watched Mainia – I gather that I got the better deal of the two shows.
