Sin Cara has officially requested his release from WWE. He posted a lengthy admission on Twitter last night, which you can find in a whole at the bottom of this artice.
Sin Cara signed with WWE in 2009, and took over the role from Luis Urive. He appeared on SmackDown in August 2011 and entered into a feud with the original Sin Cara before returning to his original character, Hunico. He re-debuted as Sin Cara on NXT in 2013 before bouncing around Raw and SmackDown for several years. He started a feud earlier this Fall with Andrade after months away from television.
Sin Cara is a former FCW Tag Team Champion and former NXT Tag Team Champion.
The wrestler, whose real name is Jorge Arias, cites lack of television time and title opportunities as his reason for wanting to leave the company. As with many wrestlers – such as EC3 and Mike Kanellis – the opinion seems to be that the roster is too full at WWE and value isn’t placed on its superstars evenly. While some names – like Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Becky Lynch – are the faces of the brand, wrestlers not on the A-team are marginally overlooked. Sadly, it’s been that way forever.
Good luck in your future endeavors, Jorge!
“Last night, after praying and considering it a lot, thinking about my children and their future, I made one of the most difficult but sensible decisions I have had to make in my professional wrestling career; I have asked for my WWE release.
Since I was a child, all I wanted to do was fight and all my life I have taken decisions and sacrifices to put myself in a position to fulfill that dream. There are 20 long years of experience and total dedication to my sport that I love and respect. I have traveled the world, met incredible people and fought for the incredible fans of the WWE Universe.
I am so grateful for the opportunity they gave me, however, I realized that I am stuck in a place where I am not valued as an athlete or talent. I have worked hard and honestly for many years to polish my trade, I have been loyal, respectful, a team player, support and I have waited patiently for the opportunity to show the world everything I can do. Unfortunately, after all these years, that opportunity never came or I feel that it will ever come while I remain where I am.
The best years of my professional wrestling career are coming and I think the best is yet to come! I am a healthy, disciplined man, respectful of my profession and its environment, of my companions and mainly of the public who has never failed. This is not the end, on the contrary, this is the beginning of the next chapter and I am excited for what the future holds!
I want to thank WWE for this incredible chapter, I will always be grateful. Most importantly, thanks to the WWE Universe for its unwavering support and to all my public that in all parts of the world has supported me and showed its affection, the only way I can correspond is by continuing to provide with all the narrow, passion and professionalism that I have Always shown. Thanks from the bottom of my heart.”
