Sin Cara: What If the Místico-Hunico Saga Is Just a Work by the WWE?

Sin Cara got released. Hunico is the new Sin Cara. Sin Cara was sent home.

The “real” Sin Cara needed to tape three times the same match. No, wait, that was Hunico. Sin Cara is a bust. Hunico is a bust, too. Sin Cara is Triple H’s pet project. Místico is going back to Mexico. No, that's another Místico.

Very confusing, isn’t it?

Wrestling sites have propagated many rumors about the wrestler formerly known as Místico’s fate, but the truth is that nobody knows for sure what’s going on with him.

These are the facts:

* Ten days before Místico finished his 30-day suspension for violating the WWE’s wellness police, Hunico replaced him as Sin Cara at SmackDown’s tapings; the commentators acknowledged: “Sin Cara looks bigger.”

* After serving his suspension, Místico reappeared as Sin Cara in SmackDown house shows.

* Místico was allegedly dressed to perform on the past SmackDown taping, but the WWE sent him home and Hunico portrayed Sin Cara again.

* After botching the ending of his match with Heath Slater, Hunico had to re-tape that match later in the show.

What's happening with Sin Cara?

That’s all we know for sure, everything else is just product of the imagination of many writers.

When the news of the re-taped match broke, many jumped to conclusions; a few sites published that it had been Místico who botched the first match, so he was released and Hunico will keep portraying the character, as the WWE wants to keep Sin Cara for his merchandising sales.

But once we knew it had been Hunico who appeared in both matches with Slater, nothing made sense at all.

So, what’s really happening?

What if this is actually a work by the WWE?

Many of us expected a Místico vs. Hunico feud with both of them claiming to be the original Sin Cara; while this would be a great storyline in my opinion, maybe it was a bit predictable.

Add a Daniel Bryan-style “firing” and then you get back the surprise element.

Maybe the WWE is trying to make fans believe the original Sin Cara is gone for good, so when he actually returns to TV to challenge Hunico it will be a real shock.

Have you considered it?
