Former Sin Cara Open To WWE Return

Mistico would be open to a return

The original Sin Cara Mistico has revealed that he is open to a WWE return.

Despite high expectations from wrestling fans and WWE management before his debut in 2011, Sin Cara’s run was widely regarded as a flop, with Sin Cara leaving WWE in 2014 whilst Hunico took over the gimmick.

Now on an appearance on Mexican TV show El Rincon, Mistico said the following about his WWE experience:

“I keep for myself all of my experience in WWE. I am a person that no matter what happens, I am a grateful person. They gave me the opportunity for a reason, right? They took me there for a reason. And that reason is because they saw something in me and I will always be grateful. Obviously, and honestly, it was a very great experience. And if one day they invite me to be part of WWE again, I will do it again. I would like to return to WWE. 

“What happened? Many things, but racism is what is most talked about. And yes, I got to experience racism, they did not give me the opportunities that I looked for and that I was promised. Because if they take you to their company it's for a reason and suddenly they limited me in the ring. And I told them: 'Well, if you hired me and brought me here, it was because of what you saw of my talent, because of what you saw above the ring.' And suddenly they cut me off and limited me completely and then you just start wondering what's going on. It's because of racism.

“There are people in WWE who don't want you to overshadow their [American] talent. I was a star in Mexico and in WWE they didn't give me the place I deserved. But again, if I get invited to join WWE again, I will do it again. Just to shut up the critics' mouths. I think that would be a wonderful thing. Also, I came to WWE at a time when I was a big star in Mexico. Because there was no social media. I think that if I had arrived at WWE today, I would have hit a home run through thick and thin because people are the ones who make us and people adore me. It was in 2011 and it was another time. Twitter was starting to take off and Facebook is only strong in Mexico, not so much in the United States where Twitter and Instagram are the most.

“The first thing that allowed me to say that I was going to be successful in WWE was the people. The fans supported me to the fullest, they knew what I had done in Mexico as a Místico and my debut in WWE caused a great impact among people and they chanted my name, so that encouraged me to say that I was going to hit a home run in my career in WWE. But, suddenly, they start to block you gradually. And there I said, 'You know what? I don't know what I'm doing here, let's go!’

“John Cena is a very, very good person. Very good person. He was always advising me and always giving me good advice. Why? Because he was the face of WWE, he was a huge star and I've always loved being around talented and successful people. HHH was the one who brought me to WWE. He's a person who has always been wonderful to me, I can't say anything bad about him. He gave me the opportunity to get to WWE, but also to meet the whole world. One day I was on one continent, the next day I was on another. I got to know Qatar, Egypt, South Africa, I got to know the whole world thanks to WWE and that's something that fills me with pride because wherever I went as Sin Cara, people knew me as Místico. A lot of people were mean to me, but it was more the ones from the training school and some people backstage. I got straight to the main roster and the Superstars respected me a lot for that. They respected my hierarchy of being the number one box office attraction in Mexico They respected my record. I once wrestled in eight sold out shows in a single day. And among the 500 WWE Superstars, I was ranked No. 3 of those who made the most money to WWE. I have learned to leave all the bad behind and take only the good. You have to leave the ego. I have learned from everything I did wrong to be a better person. I have a lot of injuries and surgeries, but I see myself wrestling for another five years. Wrestling is my life, but I also want to enjoy my family.”

The Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer pointed out that Sin Cara was never the number three money maker at any point during his WWE run.
