Sin Cara debuts new name, look in Mexico

WWE.com

The former WWE luchador has debuted for AAA under a new name and with a modified look.

At points arguably the biggest star in the world, Mistico's run with the largest pro wrestling company in the world ended up as a colossal missed opportunity and/or an epic comedic flop.

He was officially released in March, but had already been replaced under the light blue ring gear by another worker (Hunico) and was working Puerto Rican and Mexican shows before then, as well.  The wrestler (real name Luis Ignacio Urive Alvirde) officially signed with one of Mexico's major promotions, Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) but his debut was stalled until he was free of his WWE obligations.

Urive appeared in shadows and was announced as a "mysterious wrestler" while waiting for his contract to expire.  Once free of that, there was some confusion as to whether he could go back to either the Mistico or Sin Cara ring names.  Apparently, Mexico's other major, Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) shot down the former while WWE has succeeded in keeping him from using the latter at anything but small, local shows.

So, this past weekend, AAA fans witnessed...

I hope Myzteziz means something more to Spanish speakers than it does to this gringo, 'cause to me it sounds like a silver age Superman villain.

I do understand the marketing decision to basically make a version of the Sin Cara costume in Mistico's colors, but that is likewise pretty uninspired.

What do you think, Cagesiders?  WIll Myzteziz recapture some of Mistico's allure South of the Border, or is this the latest in a long line of LOLSINCARABOTCHES?
