Sin Cara Talks About His Feud With Hunico, Adapting to Life In WWE, Rey Mysterio

WWE Magazine recently spoke with Sin Cara. The full interview can be read in the latest issue but here are a few highlights:

When you debuted, there was a lot of talk about you being the successor to Rey Mysterio. Did you take that as a compliment, or the shortsightedness of the WWE Universe reacting to another masked Superstar?

I think being compared to Rey Mysterio is a great honor! In Mexico, Rey’s an icon, so to be mentioned along with him is in no way a bad thing. But I also don’t see myself as a Rey Mysterio clone. Our styles are similar, but each of us has something distinct, as well. I’ve learned a lot from Rey. Being his partner has been one of the highlights of my career.

What has been the hardest thing about adapting to life in WWE?

By far, the most difficult thing I’ve had to adapt to is the fact that 95 percent of the Superstars speak English and only English. I’m a Mexican-born luchador, and I never felt I was going to need English. I lived in Mexico; I had a career there. It’s not that I never wanted to learn English; I just never had the need to. So working in an English-speaking environment has been quite the challenge! But I’m taking classes, and I study at home and on the road.

The rivalry between you and Hunico (aka Sin Cara Negro) was really what put you on the map and cemented your place on the roster. What was your take on it?

I loved it. It was cool to have to wrestle myself, in a way, because originally he had the same outfit I had. Then when he changed to the black version of my gear, it felt almost like I was wrestling my shadow. Something that I couldn’t get rid of but was also a dark reflection of myself. There was a lot about that rivalry I enjoyed. And when it was over, I showed everyone who the real Sin Cara was!
