Sin Cara has been released by WWE according to a tweet sent out by the masked superstar.
On Nov. 11, Sin Cara publicly asked for his WWE release, saying on social media, "I’m so grateful for the opportunity I was given, however, I’ve noticed that I’m trapped in a place where I’m not valued as an athlete or talent."
Sin Cara reportedly had three years left on his deal.
On Sunday, Dec. 8, Cara was back on Twitter, stating he has been granted his release by WWE.

WWE issued the following statement on the release.
WWE has come to terms on the release of Sin Cara. WWE wishes him all the best in his future endeavors.
Sin Cara (Hunico) was signed by WWE in 2009 and was the second man to take on the Sin Cara gimmick after the original (Caristico) left the company. Hunico and Caristico feuded over the gimmick in 2011 with Caristico taking hold of the mask. However, Hunico grabbed the Sin Cara gimmick for good in 2013.
Sin Cara is a former NXT Tag Team Champion alongside of Kalisto. He accompanied Alberto Del Rio to the cage on Saturday for his fight against Tito Ortiz. Combate Americas, according to PWInsider, has an interest in Sin Cara as an announcer.
