With all of her prior backstage issues, there are those that believe that Rosa Mendes might have been a good candidate to generate interest in Total Divas, but it appears that WWE did not consider that possibility very seriously at all. Officials opted to go with Summer Rae as the new cast member.
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.
Rosa Mendes posted a picture on Twitter of herself and Alicia Fox wearing cheerleader outfits while backstage at a WWE event.
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.
The seven girls of Total Divas were able to beat the other WWE divas in a traditional Survivor Series match. Natalya and Nikki Bella were the last two standing in the ring at the end.
Prior to dropping out of college to pursue a career in modeling, Rosa Mendes studied business at the University of British Columbia.
Hunico and Camacho returned to WWE and taped a match for the Main Event.
There are many within WWE that believe that Rosa Mendes might have fabricated the domestic abuse story involving she and then boyfriend Jackson Andrews, a former developmental wrestler for the company. Many started doubting her because of her antics on the road.
