WWE Issues Statement On The Status Of Sin Cara, The Miz Talks “Christmas Bounty”, More

– As seen Monday night on Raw, the Sin Cara character returned to WWE airwaves with a victory over former WWE and World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio. The character, however, was portrayed by Jorge “Hunico” Arias, as opposed to the original performer (Luis Ignascio Urive Alvirde, who indicated via Twitter immediately following the bout that he was in Mexico). A WWE spokesperson addressed the status of the character in a message to wrestling news outlets on Thursday.

“The original performer behind the Sin Cara mask remains under contract to WWE,” the statement reads. “WWE will continue to invest in the character and retain it as part of WWE programming.”

– WWE Studios and ABC Family’s television movie, Christmas Bounty starring The Miz is now available on DVD and Blu-ray after it aired last week during ABC Family’s “Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas” programming event. The former WWE Champion appeared in KTLA in Los Angeles, California this morning to discuss the flick. It can be accessed here.

– Colt Cabana speaks to Brian Cage in the latest addition of Art of Wrestling. The synopsis for the podcast states, “PWG and Independent powerhouse. Its mainly meant because of his bodybuilding physic. Cage and Cabana go back to WWE developmental. Brian Cage really really wanted to be friends with Kanyon. He did it. They talk about it.” It can be accessed here.

    Another translation: Luis needs to shut his pie hole or risk being in breech of contract.

  • Yo

    usually I am against when they do something like this but hunico is a better sin cara than sin cara

  • Will Henderson

    translation, the original Sin Cara is still under contract with the WWE but we have chosen not to renew his contract and his contract will expire ether late this year or early next year and his character is now played by another man.
