There was a lot of speculation coming out of WWE Raw this week about who wrestled as Sin Cara. Some reported that Hunico was under the mask, beating Alberto Del Rio in the match.
PWInsider is reporting that Hunico was in fact wrestling as Sin Cara on Monday, and that WWE may have parted ways with Luis Ignascio Urive Alvirde, the original Sin Cara. WWE reportedly informed Alvirde just a few hours before Raw this week. His actual departure from the company has not been confirmed, however.
Moving forward, WWE doesn't want to lose the Sin Cara character. Merchandise for the gimmick has sold very well, so they'll likely continue with someone else playing the part. Hunico will be that person for the time being, although there's talk of bringing someone up from NXT to play Sin Cara at some point.
