In a new interview with MedioTiempo.com, WWE’s original Sin Cara joins Alberto Del Rio in claiming the company is racist. As previously reported, Del Rio recently disclosed that WWE executives, including Executive Vice President, Talent and Live Events Triple H, frequently make racist remarks throughout the company’s day-to-day operations behind-the-scenes. Myzteziz, who was also referred to as “Sin Cara: Mistico” in WWE, backs up Del Rio’s claim, stating he experienced racism while employed by the company.
Former WWE superstar Alberto Del Rio, now El Patrón, stated in a recent interview with Fighting Spirit Magazine, that racism was commonplace in WWE among executives. While they would typically make their racist remarks in the form of jokes, it was still looked at as an issue, but no one wanted to confront those that were making them due to their status in the company.
Del Rio was released from WWE in August after slapping a fellow employee that was not an executive after hearing that the employee, former WWE Social Media worker Cody Barbierri, had made a racial slur towards him. Del Rio claims that he didn’t believe he could stand up to the bosses in regards to racist remarks, but to someone who he didn’t believe was a threat to his job, he wouldn’t allow it.
Myzteziz, who originally portrayed Sin Cara in WWE and now works for Mexican wrestling promotion AAA, claims that he experienced a lot of racism behind-the-curtain while working for the company. During the interview, he used a little racism himself saying that the “gringos” that work for WWE could get “very racist” behind-the-scenes, and it was because they were being led that way by the “bosses'” example.
Myzteziz did not specify whether or not other wrestlers were racist towards him, and he does not claim that racism is why he did not succeed as a competitor for the company, but he feels like the racial tension backstage creates a terrible locker room environment for all of the minorities on staff.

Whoa. It seems like there may be a bigger problem backstage than originally thought.
