This Sunday's episode of WrestleTalk TV will feature an exclusive interview with Alberto Del Rio on Challenge TV in the United Kingdom. They uploaded a preview of the interview on YouTube and I transcribed Del Rio's comments. You can read them below:

Some people will say he's saying that because he's no longer with WWE. Yeah, that could be the case for some people. For some former WWE wrestlers but not for me. I had a big name before WWE and I have a bigger name right now after WWE. I have a great moment in Mexico. The business in Mexico is fantastic. They have this big project in the United States called Lucha Underground and it's going to be great because I'm going to join them next year. The sky is the limit for all of us. I feel bad for all the guys needing that company [WWE]. I don't need them, they don't need me. They're going to continue doing what they do, I'm going to continue doing what I do.
