WWE announced Monday that Luis Ignascio Urive Alvirde, who performs as Sin Cara, has been suspended for 30 days due to his first violation of the organization’s Talent Wellness Program.
WWE was reportedly notified of Sin Cara’s drug test failure in early June, but did not suspend him until today. He is believed to have tested positive for anabolic steroids, but we do not have that confirmed.
One backstage source believes that he may not be brought back.
Sin Cara was written off television during last night’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view. During the SmackDown Money in the Bank Ladder Match, Sheamus viciously powerbombed the masked grappler from the ring apron through a steel ladder. He was subsequently stretchered to the back by paramedics. To explain his absence from television, WWE.com announced this afternoon that he suffered a posterior fractured rib and will be sidelined for at least four weeks.
