Trivia / Sin Cara

  • Fan Nickname:
    • Botch Cara. That being said, while both performers of the gimmick are known for botching, the first performer, Luis Urive, is more well-known for this.
    • Soda Cara. A name that originated from a backstage report about a backstage fight between Sin Cara and Simon Gotch, in which the former gave the latter a black eye by throwing a loaded soda can at his face. Soda Cara is a Memetic Badass who many claim should face Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania.

  • Follow the Leader: WWE was hoping to emulate Rey Mysterio's popularity with Sin Cara when they signed Mistico in 2011. This didn't go so well, due to a number of reasons: he skipped developmental, called his matches in Spanish because he didn't want to learn English, and got injured a lot. He was then released, and with Hunico has taken up the role, time will tell if they do anything with him at all except being paired with Kalisto in NXT.
  • The Other Darrin: Started as Luis Urive (the former Mistico) & now Jorge Arias (Hunico).
  • Role-Ending Misdemeanor: Whilst the former Mistico suffered a wellness policy violation early into his tenure as Sin Cara in 2011, he remained in the role until late 2013, when he gave Alberto Del Rio a concussion. Since then, Arias has played the Sin Cara character, whilst WWE let Urive's contract run out.

  • Throw It In!: The original Sin Cara suffered a wellness policy violation a few months into his WWE tenure, which led to the eventual Hunico stepping into the role until he was allowed to return, and the Sin Cara Azul/Sin Cara Negro storyline. The irony was that Hunico was better in the role than Mistico, which eventually led to him taking on the role permanently when Mistico was released.

How well does it match the trope?
