Jason Baker, one of the masterminds behind The Fiend’s mask, has shared a video showcasing an unused Erick Rowan mask from a few years ago.
According to Baker, who worked on the mask with Tom Savini much like with The Fiend’s, Rowan was going to use the mask at WrestleMania 32 but that ended up not being the case.
In case you’d erased it from your memory, WrestleMania 32 is the year that The Rock beat Rowan in six seconds.
The design was inspired by the Bride of Frankenstein, and you can check it out in this clip:

That’s pretty awesome, and you have to wonder how and why Rowan ended up never using it.
The multiple-time Tag Team Champion was released from WWE last month.
