WWE News: Sin Cara Requests His Release from WWE

TJR Wrestling

Sin Cara has requested his release from WWE and posted about it on Twitter in Spanish. Sin Cara is 42 years old and signed with WWE in 2009. He had a run as a second Sin Cara to feud with the original (who ended up getting released years ago), then he was Hunico and then he became the babyface Sin Cara character. There hasn’t been a sustained push for Sin Cara during his WWE career, so it’s easy to see why he would want a release.

I don’t know what he wrote in Spanish, so here’s a Google Translate version of it:


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 that I 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 made decisions and sacrifices to put myself in a position to fulfill that dream. They are 20 long years of experience and total ethrega 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 patiently waited 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 to whom I have 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! (Isaiah 43: 18-19)

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 to continue providing myself with all the dedication, passion and professionalism that I have Always shown. Thanks from the bottom of my heart.

There’s no word on if WWE has granted his release or will give him his release.

Sin Cara joins Luke Harper and Mike Kanellis (Bennett) as recent examples of guys who asked for their WWE release. Harper and Kanellis have not been released by WWE.
