Having already forged a strong international following, Sin Cara, known for his high-flying wrestling style and awe-inspiring acrobatics, set his sights on reaching new heights of global success with WWE. The most popular luchador in Mexico became a welcome and huge acquisition by WWE, and debuted on Monday Night Raw the night after WrestleMania XXVII, April 4, 2011.
A second-generation performer, Sin Cara (whose name literally means “without face”) began in Mexico at the tender age of 15 and has never looked back. With his roots firmly bedded in the art of lucha libre, he exudes charisma, agility and a deep love and loyalty for his Mexican heritage. In WWE, the soaring Superstar birthed a new legacy, wowing viewers around the world with spectacular displays of agility and airborne attacks.
Since returning from an injury he suffered at the 2011 Survivor Series, Sin Cara has risen to a new level. And during a fierce rivalry with Cody Rhodes, the competitor found a new ally in fellow masked warrior, Rey Mysterio. When Intercontinental Champion The Miz got caught up in their ongoing clash, it caused a chain reaction of events that led to a whirlwind Fatal 4-Way Intercontinental Title Match at Night of Champions.
After nearly walking away with the championship gold in that high-octane showdown, Sin Cara continued to work together with Mysterio in what WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross referred to as a "teacher-student" relationship, showcased their dazzling lucha libre ability in incredible fashion.
Most recently, the explosive pair battled to the finals in an eight-team tournament to determine the new No. 1 contenders to WWE Tag Team Champions Kane & Daniel Bryan at Hell in a Cell — nearly toppling Team Rhodes Scholars on the Oct. 22 edition of Raw — and survived a Traditional Elimination Tag Team Match at Survivor Series along with Tyson Kidd and Justin Gabriel.
Through it all, the now red-and-white adorned Sin Cara seeks to ascend the greatest heights in WWE — at altitudes with which he’s clearly most comfortable.
