Backstage Sin Cara-WWE Update, Kevin Nash's Future
-- We noted yesterday that Luis Ignascio Urive Alvirde, the original Sin Cara, is eligible to resume performing since his thirty-day suspension for his first violation of the company's drug testing policy expired on Tuesday. Alvirde's future with the organization, however, remains in doubt. Developmental talent Jorge Arias (a/k/a Hunico) assumed the character at this week's and last week's SmackDown! tapings and there is talk it may be permanent as company officials are reportedly sour on Alvirde due to his performances and attitude.
-- Canada's CWI promotion was originally scheduled to have Kevin Nash appear at this weekend's events, but since he is needed to appear on Monday's RAW, he had to be pulled from them as well. He's been pulled from numerous other indy events as well. The promotion made a statement on their website that the deal Nash has signed allows him to do independent dates as long as they do not interfere with WWE appearances.
