Alberto Del Rio’s New Name, Unable To Wrestle For 90 Days, Mysterio Update

Alberto Del Rio took part in a press conference in Mexico on Thursday to officially announce his intentions to appear at Triplemania XXII on Sunday. AAA President Joaquin Roldan was on hand and a few issues were discussed.

  • Del Rio said his new home is AAA and that’s where he’ll be working in his immediate future. He won’t be able to work as Del Rio and instead will work as El Patron. This is a name Ricardo Rodriguez used to introduce him as his ring announcer in WWE.
  • Del Rio’s non-compete clause attached to his WWE Performer’s Contract will not allow him to wrestle for at least 90 days. Del Rio played up he was trying to get his lawyers to get an injunction to allow him to compete on Sunday.
  • Alberto said due to the legality of it, he couldn’t discuss his WWE release at this time but would address it in a couple of weeks.

Triplemania XXII will take place Sunday at Arena Ciudad de México in Mexico City, Mexico. It will be available on traditional pay-per-view in Mexico but on iPPV internationally.

    Mysterio is unhappy with WWE ? what did I miss?

      They won’t let him leave. We all know that WWE uses Rey for the Hispanic & Latin audiences just like they use Khali for the Indian audience. Jinder Mahal was let go because WWE already had their “Ambassador” for that. Dude wrestled way better than Khali *and* you could actually understand him in promos yet *he* was the one that got let go!

      I see it as Rey being non-committed to working full-time anymore. He’s been injured so much and he’s sick of traveling the roads so much.
