Most Noticeable Return: Sin Cara

Although he did compete in the Greatest Royal Rumble match, Sin Cara’s appearance on SmackDown Live this week was his first TV appearance since November. Having him as Andrade’s first rival could work wonders for both superstars and will prove a welcome return to TV for Sin Cara.

Wrestling is my life. It's the only thing I am 100% passionate about. I started watching it when I was about six years old. The first event I saw was a VHS tape of SummerSlam 1991. My favorite wrestlers of all time are The Undertaker, Kane, Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho and Edge. My favorite wrestlers right now are Millie McKenzie, Baron Corbin, The Miz, Rhea Ripley, Becky Lynch, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. Wrestling is definitely my main passion.
