Popularized by: Sin Cara
Move type: High Flying Submission
When Mistico came to the WWE and became Sin Cara, he was a disappointment. Sin Cara had to wrestle in the “WWE Style”—a slow-paced, narrative-driven, TV-centric approach. And Sin Cara’s high-flying moveset, which made him famous in Mexico, was severely limited. His American colleagues didn’t know how to react to his moves, and that created a high risk for botches and injuries. Check out this pre-Sin Cara finisher—an iconic head-scissors takedown that beautifully transitioned into a submission hold. The original wrestler has since left the WWE, and a new lucha libre wrestler has taken on the Sin Cara moniker.
