Former WWE Superstar Alberto Del Rio’s fall from grace is well documented now. He was facing several charges of assault, but they were dr popped in the end. There are also doubts over him ever getting inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame.

Regardless, it cannot be denied that Del Rio has seen a ton of success in WWE. After all, he is a four-time world champion, two-time WWE United States Champion as well as a Royal Rumble winner.

Recently, Del Rio made it clear that he feels he deserves to be in the WWE Hall Of Fame. While speaking on the Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T addressed Del Rio possibly getting inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame. Booker T expresses his doubts due to Del Rio’s outside antics.

“This is a guy who took the wrestling world by storm when he came into WWE -just his look, his presence. When you saw Alberto del Rio walk in the room, you go, ‘Who’s that dude right there?’ (…) Dude was handsome. He was a big guy, too, and he can perform at a very high level to the point where he became WWE Champion, world champ, four-time world champ, United States Champion, Royal Rumble winner.

I don’t put too many people on the pedestal as far as being ‘really good’ – Del Rio was really good. He played his part very, very well as far as this aristocrat, the Mexican with the gold spoon in his mouth – he had all of that. Just the look and feel – he definitely could’ve been high, high on the list as being a first-ballot Hall of Famer if it wasn’t for his outside antics.”

It is highly unlikely Del Rio will ever get inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame anytime soon. Regardless, Del Rio will continue to make his case no matter what.
