Rey Mysterio’s traditional luchador mask seems to have undergone a significant change for WWE’s Saudi Arabian Crown Jewel pay-per-view. While Mysterio often dons a Christian cross on his mask, as a symbolism of his personal faith, Mysterio has not worn any such mask for his two matches in the Crown Jewel World Cup Tournament. Instead the cross has been replaced by the inconspicuous letter R.
WWE appears to have also edited out a cross from Mysterio’s mask in the following promotional photo for Mysterio’s opening round World Cup match against Randy Orton:
