TNA Wrestling made a significant offer to acquire the services of former WWE star Alberto Del Rio. According to a source, TNA was willing to let Del Rio do Mixed Martial Arts on the side but would not allow him to work for Lucha Underground. This was the deal breaker and why he did not end up signing.

As for numbers, we’re told TNA offered $6500 per shot with 65 dates per year. This would have made him the highest paid talent in TNA and Destination America would have kicked in money on the deal, similar to what Spike TV did for bigger name talent in the past.
