The character was created by the former Corporal Kirchner in the W*ING promotion based on the lead character from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies. He debuted in December 1992 and for the next several months competed in many death matches mostly in tag team matches with Freddie Krueger, Jason the Terrible, and others. In mid 1993 Kirchner was arrested and served time in jail for assaulting a fan.

After the match Kirchner broke off a piece of a bed of nails board placed it on Ono's throat leg dropping he and Patterson then double powerbombed Ono onto a bed of nails. They then placed a barbed wire board ontop of Ono and then began jumping on the board onto him while he was lying on a bed of nails! I remember watching this match years ago, it was and is insane!

Kirchner turned up in FMW after leaving IWA wrestling as Super Leather until he left FMN in September of 1999. Over the next decade he wrestled a dozen matches as Leatherface or Super Leather with his last match being December 12, 2009 defeated Joey Vengeance in Erie, Pennsylvania.
On the August 23, 1999 episode of Monday Nitro from Las Vegas the band KISS played their song God of Thunder and near the end Brian Adams, the former Crush, appeared from a raised sarcophagus wearing face paint the same as Gene Simmon's also using the same moniker of The Demon. This segment was cut out of the episode on the WWE Network.

During a press conference in Mexico City on February 24, 2011 the WWE announced signing CMLL superstar Luis Urive (Mistico) to a contract, a major coup for the WWE. The very popular and innovated high flyer has been with CMLL since 2004 and singing with the WWE was a surprise for many. He announced that his new name would be Sin Cara.

There are a others that have done the same like Doink the Clown and The Black Scorpion, and other gimmicks that have been used over the years by different wrestlers at different times like Yellow Dog and the Conquistadors. Perhaps someday I'll explore those other gimmicks on another post.
