Cinta de Oro, formerly known as Sin Cara, says WWE “doesn’t care” about Mexican wrestlers following Andrade’s WrestleMania critique.
“No, no, no. Obviously, as a Mexican… [He sighs] ..I’m a little obviously saddened because of the situation, because I understand that there’s a lot of great talent, there are great wrestlers out there that have been there and haven’t gotten those opportunities.”
Regarding Andrade pinpointing that not one Mexican star was at WrestleMania, and critique of WWE’s apparent plans to recruit more stars from the country, saying “more talent for sitting in the locker room” – Cinta de Oro agreed.
“It’s true. I mean, what, now they’re saying that they want to go to Mexico and get more talent – for what? Sitting in catering? Doing the same thing? Putting us on the side – just because you can pay us, you want to keep us not achieving our dreams? And that’s why he left. That was the main thing.”
The former Lucha Dragon said he has no issue with people wanting to stay economically, but said he’s sure stars like Kalisto, who was released late last week, and Gran Metalik are not happy in WWE.
“Before I left, you know, I spoke with some of the guys also about that and a lot of them decided to stay, which fine. I understand that – economically. You get your cheque every week and you have that stability, economically, but they’re not happy. I’m pretty sure Kalisto is not happy, Metalik, all those guys are not happy, but they don’t want to say anything – and I don’t know why. I can say it now. I was there, I lived it and I know what it feels like and what it means. It’s really tough and it sucks.”

Sin Cara went on to pinpoint that the main Latino star at WrestleMania was Bad Bunny, and praised the musician but said he’d have been disappointed as a Mexican wrestler to not have a spot on the card.
“You know, the main Latino star at WrestleMania was Bad Bunny – and he’s not even a wrestler. Great for him, right? You know, he did an amazing job and that was awesome but if I was a performer, if I was a wrestler, a Mexican wrestler, a Latino wrestler and I’m not there, then I would have been upset, really upset about it, because I’ve been there, I’ve been busting my butt, I’ve been doing everything to make sure that I get an opportunity and then you don’t get it… It’s tough, man, it’s tough.”
Cinta de Oro’s damning statement followed, that WWE “doesn’t care” about Latinos or Mexicans.
“And then you realise that they don’t care about Latinos, or Mexicans – because simply they don’t. No matter how much they say. If they want to do this, why is that? Why you don’t even have a star, a Mexican star, in WrestleMania? Not even one. Not one.”
