Sin Cara Says Lack Of Representation On WrestleMania Shows WWE's Lack Of Care For Mexican Wrestlers

Sin Cara was disappointed in the lack of Mexican representation on WWE's WrestleMania card this year.

WrestleMania has come and gone and while there was a significant Latinx presence due to the appearance of Bad Bunny and Damian Priest.

However, with Andrade released just weeks before the event, Rey and Dominik Mysterio being featured on the Friday Night SmackDown before WrestleMania, Angel Garza and Humberto Carrillo not present on the card, and Kalisto released from WWE days later, Sin Cara, former WWE NXT Tag Team Champion stated that he was disappointed with the lack of a Mexican representation on the card.

Speaking with Inside The Ropes just days before the releases on Thursday, April 15, Sin Cara would say that the lack of Mexican presence on either night of WrestleMania shows that, in his eyes, WWE doesn't care about Mexican wrestlers.

“Before I left, you know, I spoke with some of the guys also about that and a lot of them decided to stay, which [was] fine. I understand that – economically. You get your cheque every week and you have that stability, economically, but they’re not happy. I’m pretty sure Kalisto is not happy, Metalik, all those guys are not happy, but they don’t want to say anything – and I don’t know why. I can say it now. I was there, I lived it and I know what it feels like and what it means. It’s really tough and it sucks.”

He continued, “You know, the main Latino star at WrestleMania was Bad Bunny – and he’s not even a wrestler. Great for him, right? You know, he did an amazing job and that was awesome but if I was a performer, if I was a wrestler, a Mexican wrestler, a Latino wrestler and I’m not there, then I would have been upset, really upset about it, because I’ve been there, I’ve been busting my butt, I’ve been doing everything to make sure that I get an opportunity and then you don’t get it… It’s tough, man, it’s tough.

"Then you realize that they don’t care about Latinos, or Mexicans – because simply they don’t. No matter how much they say. If they want to do this, why is that? Why [don't you] even have a star, a Mexican star, in WrestleMania? Not even one. Not one.”

Sin Cara, now known as Cinta De Oro, was released by WWE in 2019 after six years on the main roster as both Sin Cara and Hunico.
