The character of Sin Cara returns this week on WWE Smackdown. As we have reported in the past, the individual that was planned to and did play the character at the tapings on 8/9 in Sacramento, CA of the returning Sin Cara was believed to have been Jorge Arias. Arias performs for WWE in Florida Championship Wrestling as Hunico. Luis Ignascio Urive Alvirde is the name of the man originally playing Sin Cara and who wrestled under the name Mistico in Mexico.
Alvirde is coming close to completing his 30 day suspension with WWE for failing a drug test back in early June involving steroids. According to The Wrestling Observer, Arias playing the Sin Cara character could be turned into a storyline where the original Sin Cara(Alvirde) comes back and its revealed that Arias is an imposter. This would then set up a feud between the two which could be carried in to the WWE's tour in Mexico this fall.
