WWE Superstar asked for release in November.

    Sin Cara has been granted his WWE release.

    He requested his release earlier this year, with a statement on Twitter.

    In his statement posted in Spanish, Sin Cara said that “he made a tough decision” but feels that he is “trapped in a place where is not valued.”

    Below is the translated statement:

    Last night, after praying and considering it a lot, thinking about my children and their future, I made one of the most difficult but sensible decisions I have had to make in my professional wrestling career; I have asked for my WWE release.

    Since I was a child, all I wanted to do was fight and all my life I have made decisions and sacrifices to put myself in a position to fulfill that dream. They are 20 long years of experience and total dedication to my sport that I love and respect. I have traveled the world, met incredible people and fought for the incredible fans of the WWE Universe.

    I am so grateful for the opportunity they gave me, however, I realized that I am trapped in a place where I am not valued as an athlete or talent. I have worked hard and honestly for many years to polish my trade, I have been loyal, respectful, a team player, supportive and patiently awaited the opportunity to show the world everything I can do. Unfortunately, after all these years, that opportunity never came nor do I feel that it will ever come as long as I remain where I am.

    The best years of my professional wrestling career are coming and I think the best is yet to come! I am a healthy, disciplined man, respectful of my profession and its environment, of my colleagues and mainly of the public to whom I have never failed. This is not the end, on the contrary, this is the beginning of the next chapter and I am excited for what the future holds! (Isaiah 43: 18-19)

    I want to thank WWE for this amazing chapter, I will always be grateful. Most importantly, thanks to the WWE Universe for its unwavering support and to all my public that in all parts of the world has supported me and showed their love, the only way I can correspond is to continue providing myself with all the dedication, passion and professionalism that I have Always shown. Thanks from the bottom of my heart.

    In Match he quashed rumours of a contract extension.

    He joined WWE in 2009 and debuted originally as an imposter Sin Cara (who was serving a 30-day suspension) which led to him losing a Mask vs Mask match with the original Sin Cara. He became Hunico for a period of time, before replacing the old Sin Cara under the mask.

    He won the NXT Tag Team Championships with Kalisto in 2014. He wrestled on last weeks RAW, losing a mixed tag team match alongside Carolina against Andrade and Zelina Vega.

    In a post on WWE.com, the company said;

    “WWE has come to terms on the release of Sin Cara. WWE wishes him all the best in his future endeavors.”
