Things were on the upswing for the masked WWE Superstar known as Sin Cara. Despite a reputation for getting injured (which, to be fair, began with the previous performer to use the name) and a backstage fight with Chris Jericho during last year’s European tour, he recently returned to TV with a new asymmetrical mask and looking pretty strong in a series of matches with United States Champion Baron Corbin. He also has custom sneakers via a deal with Reebok, and seemed primed to get a solo push like he’s never had before.
But alas, the curse of the mask is apparently still in effect (even if it’s a different mask now), and Sin Cara announced via his Twitter that he would be missing at least one show due to an injury to his knee. The injury apparently came in a triple threat with Sami Zayn and Baron Corbin at a house show in Madrid, Spain. He had previously posted a photo, and it looks pretty rough.
There’s no further word about the injury so far, so hopefully it’s just a little twist that will heal soon enough for him to go right back into his feud with Corbin and maybe even to bigger things, like holding that United States Championship. While Sin Cara’s WWE career hasn’t always come up roses, he’s a performer who brings something unique to Smackdown Live, and it would be a shame to see him disappear again.
