Re: If Sin Cara is such a great merchandise seller why is the character jobbed so muc
I don't think some of you are reading the thread, I'm talking about why the character is booked so shitty yet is a huge merchandise seller according to what we have heard, whether the person playing the character botches or not, he can still be booked and valued more as a character than a jobber who loses to people all the time, this is what I'm on about.
Also, two people have played this character in the WWE now, they're not both a walking botch.
He can be the top merch seller in the company and still be a jobber. Sin Cara's character has no direction. They don't know what the fuck to do with masked wrestlers.
Yeah, but it doesn't make much sense does it? ... I mean, if you were running the WWE and you had a top merchandise seller, wouldn't you be booking him a little bit better for the fans that are buying the merchandise?
Lets say if AJ Lee for example (who is the highest merch seller in the diva's I believe) was constantly booked as a jobber (no title run, nothing, just a complete jobber like Sin Cara), can you imagine how many times people would be moaning about her selling all this merchandise yet WWE book her so shitty, it's the same principle in regards to Sin Cara.
They obviously wanted to keep the character for the merchandise sales, so why repackage another talent to play the character to keep him on the roster then barely put him on TV and when you do make him a complete out and out jobber, where is the logic in this?
That's what I'm trying to say in regards to this thread, not if he botches or not (which Hunico doesn't do) ... also, if you remember when Hunico had his debut as Sin Cara he was a lot slower than Mistico, but remember a couple of weeks after that when he was in the ring on Raw or Smackdown or something and he completely sped up and was on form ... I think the problem was they threw Hunico into the Sin Cara role so quickly he had NO time to adapt, he'd been playing the role of Hunico for so long in a completely different wrestling style previously then all of a sudden he was throw into the Sin Cara situation, which I do feel was a last minute thing ... I know this as I saw him at a house show a week or so as Hunico before he became Sin Cara, so he had to adapt here big time and was thrown in at the deep end.
