Sin Cara accidentally unmasked on WWE Monday Night Raw last night

During a six man tag team match on RAW in Albany, NY last night, Alberto Del Rio had Sin Cara down and pulled his mask off, making his face visible for a few moments to the audience at home and some of the audience members sitting on the hard camera side of the arena.
