Welcome back to another edition of WWE Wrestler of the Week! This week’s winner may surprise you as he is not someone who receives a lot of attention. He is not someone who is on the verge of winning any championship and he is not someone who has ever held a title in WWE. At the same time, he is the only WWE superstar with a 2-0 record this week. This week’s winner is Sin Cara.
Although he was absent from WWE’s old school edition of Raw on Monday March 4th, Sin Cara did face the United States Champion Antonio Cesaro on Main Event Wednesday night. One would have thought this would be an easy match for Cesaro, but alas Sin Cara shocked the WWE Universe with a win in a non-title match. Defeating Heath Slater on Smackdown is one thing, but a win over U.S. Champion Cesaro is completely different.
The fact that Cesaro seems to be heading down a losing streak is ridiculous and should not be happening. Cesaro and Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett have been losing match after match to Randy Orton. Cesaro should be considered an up and coming superstar in WWE, but losses to Ryback and Sin Cara in the same week are not a good sign.
Could WWE be positioning Sin Cara for a United States title run?
While it seems to be a disastrous idea, it could push Cesaro to the main event. Plus, it would give Sin Cara a big push with Rey Mysterio certainly out of the picture.
Sin Cara had a rough start to his WWE career due to injuries and suspensions, but finally had a breakthrough thanks to Mysterio. When the two luchadors formed a tag team, it allowed Sin Cara to receive the mentoring he needed to be successful. Unfortunately, Rey Mysterio’s health and personal issues have caused the tag team to end.
Mysterio may be nearing the end of his wrestling career, but Sin Cara’s is just beginning. Now that he has learned some lessons from Mysterio, perhaps the future will be brighter for the luchador. With Alberto Del Rio as the top Latino babyface, WWE could have a secondary superstar to assist with that demographic.
It will always be difficult for Sin Cara to reach a high level status in WWE due to the difficulties in language and communication. A manager would be an excellent idea for Sin Cara. Someone who can be used as a mouthpiece for him. Until that happens, Sin Cara needs to continue his winning ways and let his actions speak for him.
