Lucha Libre Star Turns Down WWE Deal

source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

Super Luchas magazine out of Mexico is reporting that Johnny Ace offered masked lucha libre star Dos Caras Jr. a WWE developmental contract, but when he told him they were sending him to Florida Championship Wrestling to learn the American wrestling style, he turned the offer down. Caras Jr. was brought to Tulsa, Oklahoma for last week's SmackDown taping. WWE contacted him because the company is trying to fill the hole of the Hispanic SmackDown star due to Rey Mysterio's move to Raw. He was also told that they need a Hispanic wrestler back-up because they are concerned about Mysterio's frequent injuries. WWE picked him because he's rather tall and has a good physique. He's billed at 6-5, but that figure's probably exaggerated. The company has also talked with Grey Shadow (Ricky Reyes), El Psicodelico Jr., and as reported earlier, Damian 666, who briefly wrestled for WCW. Damian 666 is 47 years old and the other two are masked wrestlers.
