It's been a while since I have written a one of these "Know Your Luchador" posts, but yesterday I saw something so amazing, so awe inspiring, that I had to share it with you folks. Just watch:
After watching that video, I hope you guys understand why I need to talk about this. His jump into the ring was at least ten feet and as you heard from the guy in the video at one point he was twenty feet in the air, what most amazing is the he's only 5' 7'' (that's Spud Webb legit).
The little guy's current name is "Sin Cara," (Spanish for Faceless) better known for as El Mistico here in Mexico, and his debut last Monday night marks the begging of a new age in the world of American professional wrestling. The last time I saw the WWE was when it was still the WWF and that was a long time ago, but the addition of Sin Caras to their roster will have me watching for sure. I love what the WWE has done with his character branding him as some sort of mysterious faceless warrior (because faces are so over rated). Here's a WWE promo for Sin Cara:
Sin Cara isn't new to the wrestling world, as I mentioned earlier, here in Mexico he is known as El Mistico, where his work as allowed him to leave his mark as one of the top luchadores in the nation. Seriously, check out how badass as this guy is:
He also worked in Japan as Komachi the human Shinkansen:
