I'm happy Sin Cara returned at the Rumble, I am a big fan of his. His WWE career hasn't had the best of starts but I am hoping he eventually gains some momentum... But this Rumble did NOTHING to help him at all.
The choice of number was all wrong. 29 can be big-ish deal and having Sin Cara come in at that stage was such an anticlimax for so many people, I could see that even though I love him. He had already revealed he was in the Rumble so the last 2 competitors were really predictable with Ryback still to come. I think a bigger pop was expected for him or something but he had no right to come in 29th, he is nowhere near over enough.
He is a new superstar, he needs pushing. He needs... something. I would love to see him paired with Ricardo Rodríguez somehow, maybe Ricardo could be drafted over away from Del Rio and look for a new guy to ring announce for and choose Sin Cara. This could help get him over a little bit more seen as he can't cut his own promos due to language barrier/non-talking gimmick.
But the way he came into this Rumble was a joke. He was forcefully shoved down our throats, coming out to more of a groan reaction than a cheer. Then there was the match itself. He ended up getting no eliminations and then he was humiliated by Ryback. I admit it was funny hearing JBL say "just jump out of the ring Sin Cara" but it made him look weak as hell and destroyed any credibility he would've had. He came out 29th and ended up being eliminated what, 24th or 26th? Why would they have him come out so late if the plan was to just have him chucked out, jobbing to Ryback?
They should've swapped him and Mysterio around. Give Sin Cara some ring time and let him actually look credible. Mysterio could've put Ryback over if this was the plan, he would've got a much better reaction coming in 29th and Sin Cara would not of been made to look so awful.
There were a lot of things I hated about this rumble, too many in actual fact, and this issue is not even close to being one of the biggest flaws of the night...
...but as a Sin Cara fan-girl thought I should bring this up. He's being pushed down our throats and still made to look weak as hell. He is going nowhere, might as well just go back to Mexico.
