Professional wrestler Sin Cara has asked the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) for his release. The Mexican-American performs on the Monday Night Raw brand.
He is the second Sin Cara character in WWE since 2011. The first was Luis Urive then he was replaced by Jorge Arias before his announcement that he wants to depart the franchise.
“Last night, after prayer and much consideration, I made one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make in my professional wrestling career,” Sin Cara said in a Instagram post. “I have asked for my release from the WWE. Ever since I was a little boy, all I wanted to do was wrestle and all my life I’ve made decisions and sacrifices to put myself in a position to accomplish that dream. I’ve traveled the world, gotten to know some amazing people, and wrestled for the incredible fans of the WWE Universe.
“I’m so thankful for the opportunity that I was given; however, I’ve come to the realization that I am stuck in a place, where I have no value as an athlete, performer, or entertainer. I’ve worked hard for many years to polish my craft, have been a supportive team player and have waited patiently for the opportunity to show the world everything I could do. Unfortunately, after all these years, that opportunity never came, nor do I feel it will ever come as long as I remain where I am at.”
According to Cage Match Wrestling Database, Sin Cara lost in a house show on Nov. 10, 2019. He was defeated by Andrade in a house show at 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland.
He was also defeated by Andrade at Butline Arena in Minehead, Somerset, England on Nov. 9.
He has not won a singles match since August 5, 2018 when he defeated Aiden English in a house show at the Albany Civic Center in Albany, Georgia. His last win with the company came on Sept. 29, 2019 when The Lucha House Party (Kalisto, Lince Dorado, Sin Cara) and Titus O’Neil defeated Drew Gulak, EC3, Eric Young, and Tony Nese at a House Show at the Tucson Convention Center Arena in Tucson, Arizona.
“The best years of my professional wrestling career are ahead of me and I believe that the best if yet to come!,” he said. “This is not the end, this is the beginning of the next chapter and I am excited for what the future holds!
“I want to thank the WWE for this amazing chapter, I will forever be grateful. Most importantly, thank you to the WWE Universe for your undying support.”
