This isn’t going to end well. There are a lot of people moving in and out of the WWE world right now. Some of them are coming into WWE, some of them are trying to get out and others have already made it out. The question then becomes what they are supposed to do next. A lot of the wrestlers likely wind up in AEW or at least try to, but some will go elsewhere and there are a few issues that go along with it.
One of the wrestlers who tried to get out of WWE and succeeded earlier this year was Sin Cara, who had been with the company for the better part of a decade. He requested and was granted his release though and it seemed to be exactly what he wanted. Sin Cara wasn’t being used by WWE all that much so he wasn’t a huge loss for the company. However, things are not completely done and it is about to get messy.
On Saturday night, Sin Cara appeared at AAA’s Guerra de Titanes, making a save for Pagano. During the appearance, he appeared under the Sin Cara name, which is a WWE trademark. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, AAA did not have a deal with WWE to use the name and Sin Cara is still under his ninety day no compete clause. While Sin Cara did not wrestle in a match, he used his WWE name, which included a graphic on the video screen. There is no word on WWE’s response to the situation.
This might be a big deal down the line. Check out what happened how Sin Cara returned to AAA:
Opinion: I’m not sure how this is going to end up going but it seems like it could be quite the mess for both Sin Cara and AAA. In theory Sin Cara could have appeared under another name and been ok, but using the same name and the same mask seems to be asking for trouble. Maybe both parties get in trouble with WWE, but it doesn’t look all that great from their sides.
