TNA Wrestling has made a significant offer to Alberto Del Rio — who is now working as Alberto el Patron.
We’re told Destination America has even agreed to kick in some of the money towards his contract. In fact, TNA has already increased their offer and made him “the Sting deal” with a contract worth $500,000 per year for a very light schedule.
So far, Del Rio doesn’t appear interested. The contract isn’t anywhere near the offers Del Rio is getting to do MMA, not to mention the money he’s making internationally, from indies, Ring of Honor, etc.
Richard Reacts: When I hear stuff like this I just want to bang my head into a wall. $500K for Alberto Del Rio? What am I missing? Del Rio is a fine talent and has some ability to draw on his own but $500K? Can they offer that to AJ Styles? I really want TNA's reset on Destination America to work but it's stuff like this that has me pessimistic.
