• “I would be interested in going to AEW” – Former WWE Champion
During an interview with NBC Sports Boston, former WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio was asked if he’d like to return to World Wrestling Entertainment or make his debut in All Elite Wrestling.
Del Rio said he deserves to be in a major wrestling company:
“I would be interested in going to AEW, or any major company. I deserve to be in a major company.
Once it has been proven that I was always telling the truth about those things, I know I deserve to be out there to continue entertaining and to rebuild my legacy in the business that I love I would love to be in working for any major company.
[AEW]…I haven’t talked to any anyone in that company. I have talked to people in from other companies, but not from AEW.
I have really good friends over there like Phil…CM Punk and he is one of my friends in the business and Chris Jericho, he was always nice to me and we always had a good relationship while we were working for WWE.
I know all the others and we always got along with Daniel Bryan, Jack Swagger and many others from the indy circuit.”
