Original Sin Cara Says He’s Gone From WWE – But Owns The Sin Cara Character

sin-cara

The original  was interviewed on Mexican Lucha Libre show Tercera Caída on Thursday and spoke about his return to Mexico. The hosts talked about him no longer being with WWE and he confirmed that he is now an independent wrestler. He then claimed that he owns the rights to the name, gimmick and mask – not WWE.

“I am the owner of the persona of Sin Cara. I say it openly because it’s all on my side, in my favor. I think that it’s best left to lawyers because I am the owner of the persona I am the owner of the [character’s] image and I have proof.”

This seems highly unlikely, knowing WWE’s track record of wanting to own gimmicks they create – and the continued use of ‘Sin Cara’ on WWE television. The hosts acknowledged this, but the original Sin Cara was adamant and said he has proof.

“That depends on how the wrestler work their deals. I’m not here to talk bad about anyone. I’ve always been a person that goes the route of peace. I’m not going to fight with anyone or any company. I’m not saying that because I’m scared to fight a big company. No, Why would I? Everyone knows that the original Mistico went on to be [the original] Sin Cara in the WWE. So that we would not have any legal issues with CMLL, I automatically changed my name and my persona and continued on with my registered persona.”

    Sin Cara probably didn’t check his contract… (ANOTHER BOTCH HUR HUR HUR)usually when WWE hires someone they own all rights to their name and or gimmick so they cannot go and use it elsewhere… and seeing as how WWE hyped SIN CARA up so much I don’t think they were foolish enough not to make sure they didn’t own the character…seeing as how “Sin Cara” is still on WWE programing even after the original guy behind the mask has gone. I don’t expect Captain Botch to win if it went any further. He should just walk away at this point.

      Are you implying that Sin Cara would actually botch ‘understanding the terms of his own contract’ ??

      • MohammadAbulawi

        Yes, seeing how many people love talking about he botch EVERYTHING although its not his fault

        • Ayatollah of rock N rolla

          He’s a “professional” wrestler, if he doesn’t know how to wrestle. It IS his fault

          • MohammadAbulawi

            The style is completely different in mexico than in wwe.. They didnt send him to development to learn the wwe way of wrestling

        • Peer Pressure

          Stop making excuses for this guy. He’s a bum.

      • Adam-Michael

        Yes. Yes I am

        • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

          Just checking

      Thats not quite true as so wrestlers keep they’re rights in case they get released so they can sell stuff on they’re on web site but, to your point sin cara was supposed to be the next rey so who knows

      • *Their!!!

        *Their rights! Their rights! You want to use a possessive pronoun…*Sigh here

          Damn it please don’t tell Punk I don’t want to get beat up lol

          • *Their!!!

            …If you do not want to get a beating,why do you not want us to tell him that?
            …Is there a “grammar slam” explaining “double negative”. Forget it.
            Maybe he does not want us to tell CM PUNK that he does not want to take a beating, because in fact he does want one.

          • *Their!!!

            …or maybe a period separating your two sentences would have helped.
            Sorry dude.I am just messing with you.

          • Adam-Michael

            LOL. Git.
            All in good fun though. We are all amigos here… Some of the time anyway, lol

    • SWa

      I don’t think WWE even cares about what this guy does anymore lol. I know they probably don’t announce his release because technically Sin Cara is still on the roster under different guy but yea lol.

      or he botched the interview and didn’t know he’s still employed lol

  • GN-0015

    Show your proof to those who matter and deal with everything behind closed doors. If you lose your fight with WWE you’re gonna be remembered as a professional botcher in the ring and in the court.

  • A Realist

    This guy is officially a Grade A idiot.

  • The Gassed Part Timer

    LOL this guy is lying through his teeth. You can tell by the way he sways and fidgets throughout the interview. I speak Spanish so I can tell. Wouldn’t be surprised if he actually goes for a legal dispute. It was reported backstage he had an attitude problem also. Probably gonna botch this case in court. That mask is cursed

    • A Realist

      Wait…..someone named Carlos can speak Spanish??? Say wha??

      ;)

      • Aperture

        I met a black kid named Carlos. He doesn’t speak spanish.

        • https://twitter.com/StrangeDeranged Pozessed

          But he did take my bike.

          • Aperture

            I’m am not sure if that was supposed to be stereotypical so I will just ignore that.

          • https://twitter.com/StrangeDeranged Pozessed

            It was a joke, lol.

            ok…I think I laughed way more than I should have…xD

          • https://twitter.com/StrangeDeranged Pozessed

            Then it was worth it, belle.

          • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

            My love. :*

          • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

            wait…so we weren’t addressing each other as Disney characters?…o_O

          • https://twitter.com/StrangeDeranged Pozessed

            Beauty! My mistake, I forgot we had the whole Kane & Tori relationship…

          • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

            may have to educate me on Kane/Torrie, wasn’t a fan at the time and honestly have no idea what happened there…xD

          • https://twitter.com/StrangeDeranged Pozessed

            She was a hot broad, Kane used to kinda look after her and protect her.. But then she turned on him… =
            I cannot remember it properly lol.

          • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

            sounds like the whole Kane/Kelly Kelly storyline…or was that just a kidnapping?…I can’t really remember that either lol…xD

        • A Realist

          You sure he wasn’t black Hispanic?

          • Aperture

            No, he was 100% Black. His parents liked the name so much that they named him Carlos.

  • Deante320

    Dude can copyright botchcara but then WE would have to sue him lol.

  • Reality

    Maybe he really thinks he owns Sin Cara. Afterall, he doesn’t speak English (or if he does, he doesn’t do it well)

  • LaParkaXV

    UMMMM doubtful!

  • theEDGE

    So CMLL has it’s trademarks doen whist WWE doesn’t.
    Don’t think Vince would give a trademark to a wrestler ,especially when they had somebody else doing a better job with that gimmick.

  • superturbo

    After so much hype for him being in WWE the guy crashes and burns so badly. I still say its a 50/50 thing though. WWE didn’t book him or get his character down properly nor pushed him the right way. Plenty of guys botch stuff up in the ring and get away with it half the time. Sin Cara simply was exposed enough nor got the time necessary to get over while in WWE.

  • giants fan

    i hope he`s right cause he could always force wwe to give him his trademark rights from the time he left especially if hes been using the same mask for 10 -15 years in mexico comes to the u.s and got screwed cause he should of been sent to their training school duh mexico and u.s two different styles i like mexicos better
