Sin Cara was released from WWE and then he popped into AAA’s event a week later. He was using his WWE name without permission and now he’s having an issue locking down the rights to his new name. Why did AAA allow him to show up in the first place?
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Sin Cara is under a 90 day non-compete clause. He might have been telling people that he didn’t have a non-compete clause, but he did.
It is reported that Sin Cara told AAA that he could show up on their event as long as it was edited off of television. It still aired on ESP Deportes and he appeared under the Sin Cara name. He said that WWE gave the okay, but they didn’t.
According to WWE, neither AAA nor Sin Cara had made a deal to use his name and he was still on a 90-day non-compete deal. AAA claimed that Sin Cara had told them they had WWE’s okay to use him on the show as long as his segment was edited off television. He was also on ESP Deportes and appeared under the name Sin Cara.
Now Sin Cara will have to wait until March to compete again. He could have various options on the table, but he didn’t win any points with WWE by appearing under his old name in AAA.
