WWE: Alberto Del Rio's status with AAA, what we learned

Alberto Del Rio

If you heard Sunday’s post-WWE Hell In A Cell edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, you understand the machinations that brought former WWE World Champion Alberto Del Rio back to WWE Sunday night.

Here’s some additional notes and thoughts on Del Rio’s relationship with AAA where he’s currently thee Mega World Champion:

  • The new U.S. Champion is expected on tonight’s Monday Night RAW.
  • Del Rio did contact AAA in advance, even if it was this past weekend, so they weren't blindsided like with Myzteziz who surprisingly showed up at a Lucha Libre Elite show just a few weeks ago.
  • Both sides are on good terms, but losing both ADR and Myzteziz is a huge blow to AAA.   
  • The right thing to do would be for ADR to come back to, at least, drop the AAA world title.
  • They really should have brought back Ricardo Rodriguez with him.
  • We learned that a superstar can say things negative about the company and come back with a great financial deal, while a lower level guy will have a harder time coming back when they say negative things about the boss.

Del Rio was gone from WWE for 14 months, fired due to an altercation with a then-WWE social media employee about a racist joke. We’ll have more on any Del Rio news on tonight’s post-RAW Wrestling Observer Radio.
