Wednesday, March 7, 2018
It was previously reported that Impact Wrestling Star Alberto El Patron (Alberto Del Rio) was at WWE HQ in Stamford, CT last week to shoot an interview footage for a future Rey Mysterio project. He was also at WWE HQ to meet with Vince McMahon. There has been talks about Vince McMahon wanting to bring Alberto back to WWE as he has always been high on him, as both a character and a performer. Alberto's Impact contract reportedly expires next month but they are hoping to re-sign him.
It was previously announced that Alberto will be working AAA's biggest show of the year on August 25th in Mexico City known as TripleMania. According to PWInsider, Alberto has not signed a regular contract with AAA as his TripleMania deal is for one night only. It is possible that Alberto returns to WWE and is still allowed to work the AAA show.
