This will be Del Rio's first appearance since being released from his WWE contract last Thursday.
Richard Reacts: I'm under the assumption that Alberto Del Rio has a 90-day non-compete clause from his WWE Performer's Contract, so it will be interesting to see how this works out. The fact Del Rio is looking to return to Mexico is of no surprise what-so-ever.
