Alberto Del Rio was released from WWE in 2016 and he has been through quite a lot since then. The former WWE Champion also wants to make a return to Vince McMahon’s company, but he is currently in messy legal situation that is keeping that from happening.
Del Rio was accused by his ex for kidnapping her and sexual assault. She has since taken back her testimony, but a police report was filed and the courts are involved. Del Rio has faith that this situation will be resolved, but it will take time; especially since so many court cases are getting held up due to COVID.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Alberto is telling people that he is going back to Vince McMahon’s company once his current legal situation is over. While it’s hard to believe, it’s not out of the realm of possibility.
While I don’t believe this at all, but Alberto El Patron is telling people that he’s going to WWE when his legal situation regarding the alleged assault on an ex-girlfriend in San Antonio is cleared up. It would actually shock me if WWE would use him, not that anything is impossible and WWE could get away with it while any other U.S. company would be excoriated for it, but I don’t think that’s a direction that makes any sense for them at this point
We’ll have to see what’s next for Alberto Del Rio. He has a lot of experience and could benefit any roster he’s in, if he’s 100% in the game. A lot of external factors sadly played into his time in the ring and cut things short for him. You can never say never in WWE, especially when it comes to Vince McMahon giving someone a second or third chance.
