FIGHTS: Sin Cara sidelined!

It's a sad time for lucha libre.

Mexican lucha libre phenom Sin Cara has been sidelined with a serious knee injury.  Doctors believe the knee injury will put Sin Cara on el banco for up to nine months.

Sin Cara has had knee problems for a while.  The 'wellness policy' violation he was subject to a few months ago was allegedly because Sin Cara was treating an injured knee with steroids.  This could possibly be the same knee that has been giving him problems for some time and was injured Sunday.

As an avid supporter of Mexican lucha libre culture, I was sad to hear this news.  He has had a hard time getting his feet under him in WWE, and though he had turned a corner with the historic mask vs. mask match against rival Hunico (then Sin Cara Negro), this is yet another disappointing drawback. sincerely wishes Sin Cara well, and that he has a speedy recovery.


Author Bowie Ibarra of just wants 'Red Dragon' of The Rain City Superheros to respect Lucha Libre history and tradition.  That's all.

The historic WWE Mask vs. Mask match: Sin Cara Azul vs. Sin Cara Negro.  It's a true salute to Mexican Lucha Libre!

Ring of Honor TV is the best pro-wrestling on TV today.  Old School, represent!


Bowie Ibarra is the author of the zombie horror series "Down the Road" from Simon and Schuester and Permuted Press.  His upcoming book, "Pit Fighters: Baptism by Fire" and "Pit Fighters: Double Cross" are combat-sport themed books featuring a Mexican luchador that crosses over into MMA.
