As noted earlier here on the website, Super Luchas reports that masked Mexican professional wrestler Averno has signed a contract with WWE. He is crossing over to the sports entertainment organization as an unmasked heel to work with Sin Cara on the SmackDown! brand. He is expected to lose his mask to La Mascara at CMLL's next big event, which takes place on June 17.
Averno had a tryout match with WWE last October and performed well, but was not signed due to concern over his ageó34 years old. A deal was completed recently when company officials asked Sin Cara who he would most like to work with and he suggested Averno. WWE asked for his advice since most of the organization's talent haven yet to adapt to his style of wrestling and therefore isn't performing up to par. Averno, his longtime rival in CMLL, can work his style and showcase his strengths.
WWE is also considering signing two other young CMLL luchadors. It should also be noted that word is that the political environment in CMLL is not at all stable, and this is making things worse for them.
