Earlier today, it was revealed that Sin Cara has asked for his release.
In spite of this, PWInsider reported that Sin Cara has three years left on his contract. Now, in an updated report, Mike Johnson of PWInsider is saying that WWE sources have told him they will not be granting this release request.
In his statement on Twitter, Sin Cara spoke openly about feeling like he was in a rut in his career and that he has patiently waited for an opportunity that has not come. You can see the full translation below courtesy of Carlos Toro of Fightful:
“Last night, after much consideration and prayer, thinking about my kids and their future, I made one of the toughest decisions but most sensible that I could have made in my professional wrestling career; I have asked WWE for my release.
Ever since I was a kid, all that I’ve wanted to do is wrestle and all my life, I have made decisions and sacrifices that put me in a position to accomplish my dream. It’s been 20 long years of work and giving it my all to this sport that I love and respect. I’ve traveled all over the world, met incredible people and wrestled for the amazing fans inside the WWE Universe.
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. I’ve worked hard and honestly, throughout many years pulling my weight, I’ve been loyal, respectful, a team player, a supporter and I’ve waited patiently for an opportunity to show the world all that I can do. Unfortunately, after all these years, that opportunity never came and I feel like that will never come so long as I stay in the spot that I am.
The best years of my professional wrestling career are yet to come and I believe that the best is yet to come! I am a healthy, disciplined and respectful man towards my profession and its atmosphere, of my co-workers and primarily, the audience whom I’ve never failed. This is not the end, quite the contrary, it’s the start of the next chapter and I am excited for what the future holds.
I want to thank WWE for this incredible chapter. I’ll always be grateful for it. Most importantly, thank you to the WWE Universe for its unwavering support and to the public all over the world who have supported me and cared for me. The only way to give that back is to keep giving it my all, showing my passion and professionalism that I’ve always demonstrated. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
