To follow-up on a story we ran last week about Alberto Del Rio talking retirement, I’m told by a source close to Del Rio that he’d actually like to have another run in Mexico after his career in WWE before he retires. Apparently all the talk of “retiring when his contract is up” is being done as a way to make the WWE office believe he’s finished when his contract is up as opposed to returning to Mexico to prevent him from being buried on his way out the door.
Del Rio has saved his money well and is hoping to leave WWE on top when his contract is up, return to Mexico as a hero and work another year or two before calling it a career. My source doesn’t feel this story is going to go away and the “cat and house” game between WWE and Del Rio is going to be an interesting thing to follow as time progresses.
The company is currently “desperate” for Latin stars and can’t afford to completely bury Del Rio but do not have faith he’s going to be around for the long haul either.
