La 5a Estacion - Me Meuro

Any wrestling fans who still haven’t seen this should really check it out! It’s not only a great song, and a completely wacky video, but a good example of how big Sin Cara was in his pre-WWE days.

As Mistico, Cara was a megastar in CMLL and a huge draw. You could pretty much call him the John Cena of his era in Mexico, although much more beloved in his prime and you could argue a bigger money generator. While WWE tell a lot of little white lies, when they talk about what a huge deal Sin Cara was in Mexico, they aren’t lying. He was something of a cultural phenomenon. This video, which was also his theme song, stars Mistico as himself and the exploits of one adoring female fan. Be sure to check out the big finale, a moving scene where they kiss… without taking off his mask.

I was just thinking about this because of more reports that Mistico has heat on him in WWE for being big headed and arrogant. While no one likes to work with a pompous asshole, there’s no denying that he was a pretty big deal back home and does deserve his share of respect. Check it out.
