PRIDE figher to WWE..possibly SD!?

WWE brought in Latino wrestling star Dos Caras Jr. at the Tulsa, Oklahoma show on July 1st, to check out his work and see about the possibility of bringing him into the fold. Caras Jr., who has also fought in mixed-martial arts competition for the now defunct PRIDE Fighting Championships operation out of Japan (now owned by Zuffa, the parent company of the UFC), is being talked about as a possible new signee to replace Rey Mysterio Jr. on the SmackDown! side, as the new Hispanic standout for the brand. One of several positive attributes for Caras Jr., is that he speaks fluent English. This should help him from getting thrown into one of the grab-bag prejudice roles we've seen past Hispanic stars stuck with in the past.

 

Not herd much of this guy, but it proves that WWE isn't willing to lose the Hispanic demographic for Smackdown by moving Rey to RAW, and the fact that he speaks fluent English is a good thing aswell

Well moving Carlito to SD kind of showed that they didn't forget about the hispanic demo. But RAW needed help too and Rey's popular. I haven't heard much of this guy and frankly i didn't even know PRIDE went under, lol, but I'd like to see what this guy has.


Think I'll have a wank over these tomorrow.

Pride got bought out by UFC last year I think. When I first saw the headline, I seriously thought they had got Bob Sapp. I will have to see if there is any good stuff of this guy on YouTube

i checked a few of his matches out on yt and seriously I didn't see him hit one offensive move, lol. That doesn't mean he won't be a good wrestler though. I like his look. We'll see how this pans out.

Speaking of Carlito... where is he? I don't remember seeing him on tv since the draft when he moved to SD.
