Backstage News On Sin Cara

Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

When the controversial Sin Cara t-shirt was released by WWE earlier this week, the joke backstage in WWE was that even Cara's t-shirts were botching spots. Customers who ordered the shirt are being issued refunds or credits.

Regarding Cara and Vince McMahon, there was some concern that Vince was down on the Cara character following WWE's Survivor Series pay-per-view, where he was injured, but sources report that's not the case. It was pointed out to Vince that accidents happen.

Officials were disappointed because they had a bunch of new merchandise coming out for Cara and because they were hoping for Cara vs. Rey Mysterio at WrestleMania 28. WWE wanted to try and set the world record for most masks worn in one place at a time with the match. The belief is that Cara vs. Mysterio will still happen in 2012.

Another reason for WWE officials being disappointed in Sin Cara going out is because they have no Superstars on TV wearing masks during the Holiday season, where masks are a big seller. WWE also had a big stunt planned for Sin Cara at the 2012 Royal Rumble that obviously won't be happening.
