Its mostly an economic decision. And if you are a mark for yourself and your gimmick. 
 

look how long it took Wagner to get the right price and what stage of his career.

and Park. Would he really be Park without his hood?

I believe it could be both. 
 

a wrestler may make it known he’d lose his mask, for $xxx. 
 

or 

a promoter would go to a wrestler and say, “we want someone to lose their mask at an upcoming show. What’s your price?”

AAA is doing 2 Apeustas matches at Tripemania next month as well, Penta/Villano is for masks and Pagano/Cibernetico is for hair.  I don't recall that happening in the same card before.

So its the wrestlers decision? Basically someone offers them enough money to do it? Would the idea of someone losing their mask orginate from the booker/ promotion or wrestler them selves?

Some it really depends on the level of the wrestler and how over the gimmick is. There are low card and jobber luchadores who have lost masks multiple times under different gimmicks.

I think he would be good with a tweaked gimmick but wearing the skeletal body suit with no mask would be strange. 

Super Parka lost his hood and still mostly wore the bodysuit and it looked okay. I definitely think that the long tights with the bones was a better look for him, but he was also in really good shape still. If LA ParK wanted to drop the bodysuit, it's a radically different body type we'd be seeing.

15:40, that top right section was full of ones that stumped me for a while!

re: masks, noticed Penta is in a mask v mask per the post above, Penta must hold the record for number of times his mask has been ripped without being unmasked at this point.

Me too. @S.K.o.S.One of my favorite things about these is how it shows we’re all on the same page with a common wrestling vernacular. 

I kind of enjoy that most crossword solvers would be completely powerless against these ones (barring a ton of Googling).

Even if they could google the names on some sort of factual basis, the lingo is what would get them. Wrestlers have their own carny but so do we.
