Another WWE superstar has requested his release from the company.
Sin Cara took to Twitter to announce he has requested to be released from his WWE contract. In a statement posted in Spanish, Sin Cara explained although it was a tough decision, he needs to think about his children and future.
Sin Cara was critical about his booking within WWE, stating he is trapped in a place where is not valued. He feels he has been loyal, respectful, and a team player, but has not reaped any rewards from doing so.
The following statement was translated from Spanish to English.
Last night, after praying and considering it a lot, thinking about my children and their future, I made one of the most difficult but sensible decisions I have had to make in my professional wrestling career; I have asked for my WWE release.
Since I was a child, all I wanted to do was fight and all my life I have made decisions and sacrifices to put myself in a position to fulfill that dream. They are 20 long years of experience and total dedication to my sport that I love and respect. I have traveled the world, met incredible people and fought for the incredible fans of the WWE Universe.
I am so grateful for the opportunity they gave me, however, I realized that I am trapped in a place where I am not valued as an athlete or talent. I have worked hard and honestly for many years to polish my trade, I have been loyal, respectful, a team player, supportive and patiently awaited the opportunity to show the world everything I can do. Unfortunately, after all these years, that opportunity never came nor do I feel that it will ever come as long as I remain where I am.
The best years of my professional wrestling career are coming and I think the best is yet to come! I am a healthy, disciplined man, respectful of my profession and its environment, of my colleagues and mainly of the public to whom I have never failed. This is not the end, on the contrary, this is the beginning of the next chapter and I am excited for what the future holds! (Isaiah 43: 18-19)
I want to thank WWE for this amazing chapter, I will always be grateful. Most importantly, thanks to the WWE Universe for its unwavering support and to all my public that in all parts of the world has supported me and showed their love, the only way I can correspond is to continue providing myself with all the dedication, passion and professionalism that I have Always shown. Thanks from the bottom of my heart. – Translation provided by HeelByNature.com

It’s unknown if WWE will grant Sin Cara his release, or if he will have to wait out his contract like many others. Most recently Mike Kanellis requested his release from the company, and has yet to be granted it.
Jorge Arias currently plays the role of Sin Cara. Arias debuted for WWE in 2011, temporarily replacing Luis Urvive, who previously played the character.
In 2013, after WWE released Urive, Arias reprised his role as Sin Cara and has since performed as the character.
Earlier this year PWInsider reports, Sin Cara signed a new three-year deal with WWE. His current deal runs until 2022.
