"My guys showed me Warrior's tweets. I was trying to be entertaining with the radio show and took things too far, like I do too often. I have no business inferring anything negative about him. I apologize. He deserves the HOF and respect for what he accomplished in the business. But let me be clear. There is no hypocrisy here. I am not preaching anything. I am sharing my recovery path to show others what is possible. So no pity, bathrooms stalls or groveling. I am doing great. I am an addict and alcoholic working every single day to repair and make the best out of the life I have left. I make mistakes, like that comment, but my recovery has been amazing. Jim does not know this Jake. Without realizing or intending to, I fired the first shot and will take Jim's response without any negativity towards him. I apologize and am putting behind me."
- Jake Roberts to Ultimate Warrior
While management has given up on the character, WWE will be keeping Sin Cara around because he is featured in the upcoming Scooby Doo movie. Oficials have no plan on bringing the original performer back, so Hunico will have the role until after the movie has been released.
While the masked superstar is still interested in a return, WWE has expressed very little interest in bringing Sin Cara back now that his contract has expired. The belief is that the company can save a good amount of money by using Hunico instead.
With his contract expired, Sin Cara is officially gone from WWE. The masked star acknowledges that Hunico has been working under the mask since his departure, and he has been encouraging fans to let the company know that he is missed.
Despite being replaced by Hunico under the mask on WWE shows, the original Sin Cara has still been posting pictures of himself with the mask on Twitter. The company is planning on keeping the character even after his contract expires in a few days.
The contract that Sin Cara signed with WWE is set to expire at the end of December, and management is leaning towards letting the performer leave while retaining the rights to utilize the character with Hunico.
In a rather strange move, WWE has decided to address internet rumors and released a statement, revealing that Sin Cara is still under contract to the promotion, even though Hunico has been portraying the character as of late.
Wrestling fans saw the return of Sin Cara on Monday Night Raw this week, but it was actually Hunico under the mask, as WWE is currently having issues with the normal performer.
