• Former WWE Champion Wants To Return To The Company, Open To A Hall Of Fame Induction As Well
Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio, who wrestles outside of WWE as Alberto El Patron, was recently interviewed by SK Wrestling, where he revealed that he would be open to a WWE return, as well as a potential Hall of Fame induction.
It’s safe to say that not many people would actually consider Del Rio’s 2010-2014 or his 2015-2016 run Hall of Fame worthy, despite winning 4 World Titles during that time.
Here’s what Alberto had to say on returning to WWE:
“Of course, first of all, I would say thank you. Thank you for the opportunity, and sorry for the mistakes I made, I just didn’t know. Sometimes I would just, I did it because it was personal. Now, as a promoter, I know there is nothing personal in pro wrestling. It’s just business. I’m sorry for my mistakes.
No excuse, but I was also going through a difficult time in my life when I got divorced, I lost a fantastic woman, the mother of my children, for my mistakes, and that put me in a deep depression. But that’s just for me to handle. It’s not an excuse. It takes a toll on you and your body, and your mind and your spirit. So, I will say thank you and sorry, and I would do it again.”
