Pro Wrestling Since 1997


WWE seeking another Hispanic grappler

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that WWE is once again seeking talent from Mexico. Obviously, Sin Cara hasn’t made the impact the company had hoped, and additionally, Alberto Del Rio has stated that he doesn’t plan to continue wrestling in a few year. Rey Mysterio Jr. continues to have difficulty complying to the company’s wellness policy, and remaining healthy. WWE is again looking for young Hispanic talent, English speaking, charismatic, and high flying.

    vampiro is canadian.

    It said “young” Joeyb…

    I say sign Bestia 666 or Super Nova

  4. Shane Daly says:

    ^ Young is one of the key words. Vampiro has miles on his body

  5. loo s says:

    hes canadian…….how about Max Mini?????

  6. Nick says:

    Vampiro isn’t Hispanic, he’s Canadian. Nor is he young, or well liked, or respected by anyone that ever worked with him. Jericho literally called him out as the worst person he ever worked with in the business. I don’t see Vampire in WWE anytime soon.

    What the heck ever happened to Averno anyway? And why not just repackage Hunico under a new mask?

  7. Jamie says:

    Primo & Epico? I know they’re not Mexican, but surely they qualify as Hispanic

  8. Joe says:

    Hunico isnt Young. WWE wants a guy they can invest a good ten+ years into like they did with Rey.

  9. Mr. Black says:

    Bestia 666 is my bet. I don’t understand why they would release Alex koslov though, who thrives in the lucha style. Sure he’s not Mexican, but they could have easily put him under a mask and passed him off as one.

    While he’s not exactly Young (36) what about Ricky Banderas? He’s Hispanic (Puerto Rican), he has tons of experience working various styles, he speaks Spanish as well as English, and for a Hispanic wrestler he’s on the bigger side (6″1′ with a pretty solid build). Though I don’t know how he’d be in the Babyface role (which it appears is what WWE is looking for).

    “Sin Cara hasn’t made the impact the company had hoped” because he was over-hyped.

  12. Chris Epic says:

    Hunico or even though he has some years get Bryan & Punk’s boy the 187

  13. Meh says:

    Juventud Guerrera
