Since coming back, his matches have felt a lot more cohesive. I hate the idea that matches should be "smooth" to be good, because some of my favorite matches have had a chaotic, "real fight" feel to them. That being said, I don't like watching matches where it looks obviously choreographed, like guys are rushing into areas so they can be "in place" rather than working the choreography into something that looks like a fight.
I don't know what the reason for this is. Maybe he studied some of what successful luchadors have done in WWE (read: Rey Mysterio). Maybe he just realized that if he toned down his style, he could do stuff more safely. Maybe it's just that he had the right two opponents in his first two matches back in the eminently familiar Hunico and the awesomely underutilized Drew McIntyre. Whatever it is, it's working.
Anyone who works that high risk a style is going to have botches. They don't call it high risk for nothing. That being said, if he gets everything else right, then Sin Cara will very much succeed in WWE. Telling a story in the ring isn't just about dazzling and dropping jaws. There has to be some kind of continuity within the match, and I feel like Sin Cara is on his way to realizing the high stakes that WWE has laid out for him with his much-ballyhooed signing around this time last year.
