If this ends up being true, Sin Cara's tenure with WWE will be deemed a failure. He will go down as another wrestler who just wasn't a fit with Vince McMahon's company.
The move would be beneficial to both Sin Cara and WWE.
Sin Cara came to WWE with hype and momentum. He'd been a top draw and major star in Mexico since his debut as Mistico in 2004.
Wrestling Observer Newsletter awarded him their Best Flying Wrestler honor in 2006 and 2007 as well as Wrestler of the Year in 2006.
With Rey Mysterio's career tailing off, WWE seemed to have found his replacement.
Things haven't worked out that way. Sin Cara's short career with WWE has been hampered by his style not translating to WWE rings.
He's quickly gained a reputation for being a botch artist—a far cry from his respected position in Mexico.
Injuries and suspensions have further slowed his ascension up the WWE ladder and left a bad impression in fans' minds.
WWE fans familiar with his work as Mistico keep hoping for that megastar to appear—to tear out of the fog of disappointment Sin Cara has been trekking through.
Releasing Sin Cara would allow him to return to a country, a fanbase and a wrestling style that is far better for him. Certainly his paychecks will be smaller, but being beloved over being booed is valuable in and of itself.
WWE is a special brand of wrestling. Not every great wrestler can find a home here.
Sin Cara's reputation is so sullied here that he may never convince WWE fans that he's worth a roster spot.
Meanwhile, he could easily return to the freewheeling style of Lucha Libre without missing a step.
WWE needs to admit that the Sin Cara experiment has been a failure and allow him to return where he is appreciated and can thrive.
