Monster Clown - Lucha Libre AAA

Los Psycho Circus, Monster Clown is on the rightLos Psycho Circus, Monster Clown is on the right.

Now this is part of what I like so much about lucha libre.
The blatant outrageousness they can pull off at times.
I mean how cool is going into the psyche of the fans and pulling out Coulrophobia (fear of clowns) as a gimmick?
Well Monster Clown does just that.

The man behind the mask started out wrestling in 1997 as Highlander.
Then he went on to the wrestling promotion Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) and became Aliens.

In 2007, AAA repackaged him as Zombie Clown and made him part of the new wrestling stable, Los Psycho Circus along with Psycho Clown and Killer Clown.
The stable was supposed to be inspired by the B-movie, Killer Klowns from Outer Space.

These guys went on a rampage taking on and defeating not only faces, but heels as well.

In August 2009, Zombie Clown was renamed "Monster Clown" and his partner Killer Clown was renamed "Murder Clown" due to some copyright issues over the original names.
I've looked and I cant figure out what the copyright issue was.
