Out of all the topics, this is one that I've been busting my chops to get an opinion on.
Let's be honest with ourselves: The Sin Cara experiment as of now is a failure.
When it became clear that Rey Mysterio was getting older and winding down in his career, WWE searched for a new Mexican-masked hero to take his place.
Enter Sin Cara, originally played by Mistico, a guy with immense popularity in his homeland as being one of the best luchador wrestlers.
Too bad we haven't gotten much of that since he's been in America.
For one, evident by the clip you see here, Mistico's Sin Cara is absolutely clueless when it comes to wrestling WWE-style. I haven't seen any of his Mexico promotion work, but what I've seen here has led me to label Sin Cara "Sin Botcha."
His timing is very off and he is God-awful with his spots. To be honest, WWE is lucky that Sin Cara has only hurt himself and not anyone else.
Then, as it turns out, Mistico grew somewhat of a bad reputation backstage for his botches and his attitude.
It certainly didn't work in his favor when he was suspended for violating the Wellness Policy, and then proceeded to go back to Mexico and put WWE on blast about his violation in an attempt to clear his name.
The character was taken over by Hunico. He, unlike Mistico, was a bigger guy who actually can speak English.
Too bad even he showed some rough patches. Apparently, one of his matches on Smackdown had to be re-taped due to him botching too much.
All of these hurdles led to Sin Cara vs. Sin Cara feud when Mistico returned. But in all honesty, watch that feud and check out the dead silences the matches received from the crowd.
No one knew who to root for.
And then, right after the feud was over and Mistico took over reigns as Sin Cara again, he got injured at Survivor Series.
It was planned that for next year's Wrestlemania there was to be a Sin Cara vs. Rey Mysterio match. However, seeing as how both guys are injured for a long time, that probably isn't happening.
In summary, the Sin Cara experiment has failed and did absolutely nothing that WWE wanted it to do.
My suggestion? Cut their losses with Cara. If by the time the dude gets back and still can't pull off decent spots and injures someone else in the process, then it's not worth the hassle anymore.
