Sin Cara made his latest return to WWE TV tonight, upsetting Alberto Del Rio on RAW. Only it was clearly not our old friend Mistico, but someone else in the costume. Things are happening.
The Sin Cara on Raw appeared to be Hunico, though they did not acknowledge any switch. Tonight’s Sin Cara and Hunico have the same tattoo. After this match, and probably after he had gotten a hundred replies on Twitter, Mistico I posted an update from Mexico City on FourSquare moments after the match ended. There’s a screenshot here in case it gets deleted, which it may – exposing a switch like that is enough to get someone fired or banished. Mistico I is either really dumb, really wants to be fired, or knows he’s already done in WWE and just doesn’t care. Maybe some combination of all of those.
Mistico’s probably headed to AAA at some point in the future. It’s been the most likely next destination for years. It’s more likely Mistico would work the ex-WWE circuit of indy shows or go to Japan than go back to CMLL, best I can tell.
It’s now more a matter of when Mistico’s able to go elsewhere. He may be hoping to get released immediately. He may have have a standard three year contract and would be free to move on in January/February. It’s possible he may be stuck in WWE longer – there was said to be a provision in Rey Misterio’s contract which allowed WWE to extend his contract because he missed so much time due to injury. Sin Cara missed nearly as much time if WWE wanted to make an issue out of it. It’d be just to bench him – barring an amazing reversal, Mistico’s not going to be in the Sin Cara costume again.
This is coming to an end. WWE seemed to move on Monday and Mistico will do the same sometime in the near future.
