Alberto Del Rio

Various reports across the Internet that WWE is interested in bringing back Alberto Del Rio are true. He isn’t locked in for Season 2 of Lucha Underground and we’re told WWE has made a “pretty strong offer.” It’s unknown if a deal will get done, at least right now. Observers claim Del Rio has really enjoyed his schedule since leaving WWE and if he were to entertain the idea of a return, he'd want it to be a reduced schedule. The offer WWE made was for a full time return.

This was also an issue with Carlito as well as he prefers a part time schedule and WWE's offer to Carlito was for a full time schedule. The money offer to Carlito wasn't that big, but Del Rio, if he was willing to return full time, would be making really good money.

Based on conversations we’ve had, Del Rio and Carlito could get WWE to raise their offers if they play their cards right, but the company is less likely to budge as much on the amount of dates. The entire reason they're looking to bring back former Latin stars like Del Rio, Carlito and Rey Mysterio is because of the huge void they have on the roster right now in terms of a top Latin star.

So they really need full time guys to fill that void. If they sign a part timer, the issue hasn't been fully addressed and they'll still need to go find another guy.
