Would he or wouldn’t he, that was the question for at least two weeks in the WWE. Would the WWE release the original Sin Cara or would he come back? Well that question was answered at this week’s SmackDown taping which will air this Friday night.
Be warned that you are about to read a SmackDown spoiler. Obviously by the headline you already know what the story is, but if you wish to be spared details, stop reading now. You have been warned!
The original Sin Cara, Luis Ignascio Urive Alvirde returned to the WWE this week after weeks of debate concerning his future. The former Mistico appeared at the SmackDown taping and appears to have gotten a second and likely last chance at success with the WWE.
The return of Alvirde is likely due to the WWE being frustrated with the lack of progress of Hunico. Hunico was in the dog house on night one when Vince McMahon ordered him to redo his match with Heath Slater numerous times at a SmackDown taping. Students of WWE history will tell you that Vince McMahon making you go back out to redo a match is tantamount to the kiss of death.
Alvirde was sent home a second time from the WWE only a few days after returning from a Wellness Policy suspension. It was reported is that the WWE did not like his attitude, specifically not shaking everyone’s hand in the locker room. Once he was sent home it was reported that the WWE would move forward with Hunico and part with Alvirde. Lucky for Alvirde, Hunico did not connect as expected and he is now back for another opportunity.
I am a fan of Alvirde so I am excited that he is back. He was one of the few bright spots for awhile on a rather mundane SmackDown roster. Once this feud with Hunico is over, I’d expect to see Sin Cara get a bigger push. The WWE will be going into Mexico in October for a tour and a RAW broadcast. It wouldn’t surprise me at all to see Sin Cara challenge Alberto Del Rio in October for the title or at least wrestle in the tour main-events.
