Sin Cara, a guy who cannot afford too much more ill will or anymore strikes against him in WWE, is back in the spotlight for (you guessed it) botching a spot. According to Wrestlezone (by way of SuperLuchas.net), Dolph Ziggler is angry with Sin Cara over a miscue at Money in the Bank:
...Ziggler was said to have been very vocal backstage following the bout, complaining to officials that Cara worked stiffly during the match and failed to protect him during a high-risk maneuver off the top rope known as The Spanish Fly.
The report goes on to further note that Ziggler plans to file a formal complaint over the spot so that officials can determine whether or not Sin Cara should face punishment.
It should be noted that Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer came to the defense of Cara, and has been quoted as saying the following:
"Ziggler slipped halfway through the move when Sin Cara's back was already bent far enough he could do nothing but fall. It's only Sin Cara's fault if he had ESP and would have known Ziggler was about to slip."
This places a lot of stress on Sin Cara, and given his recent problems, I'm wondering if his career is in jeopardy. With
Randy Orton Dolph Ziggler—who is seemingly the next man up in terms of becoming a world champ—filing a formal complaint (whatever that means), this could possibly be the last straw for Sin Cara's WWE career.
Now, there are two caveats to this situation. The first is Meltzer's claim: Cara's Spanish Fly issue was more a miscue and a mistake on both parts than a willful disregard of Ziggler's well-being, and if WWE officials take a look at it, they'll see that, indeed, Ziggler's slip caused the botch more than anything else. The second caveat is that Sin Cara is known to be one of Triple H's guys, and unless Triple H has soured on him, then I doubt this will be it for Sin Cara.
However, you have to think that Sin Cara is running out of chances. Like Mr. Kennedy before him, Cara is a popular performer who keeps getting into trouble, and ultimately, it might force the hand of people who advocate for him to give their blessing on a release.
Do you think that Sin Cara's career is in jeopardy? Also, what do you think this reaction from Ziggler says about him? Do you think he's going to wind up like Randy Orton and begin to (possibly) sabotage the careers of others, or do you think this is a one-time thing?
