Former WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio was a guest on The Roman Show, and below are some interview highlights.
On a possible WWE return and who he would like to face:
“Top of my head is Rey Mysterio Jr. He is one of my best friends, fantastic wrestler and a real life legend,” he said. “He would be the perfect person to do a world tour to say goodbye. I would like to wrestle some guys again like Dolph Ziggler, Ken Anderson and many others in the business. I have always stayed the same because I have a good relationship with Vince McMahon. I am sure I’ll be back one day before I decide to retire. I’ll return to have a final run. Maybe I’ll be able to work with all those wrestlers I used to work with in that company.”
On why his Triplemania appearance fell through:
“I don’t like how they are doing things in the business,” he said. “We continue to see promoters take advantage of the talent. Thank God I am in the position, where’ I am able to say ‘ok you can do this, but you won’t do this to me’. It happened with Triple A. They called me and found me and took me somewhere and spoiled me to see if I can do their biggest event of the year. Then, they never sent the money. They never came. I was supposed to fight someone and they were never able to seal the deal with this wrestler. They talked about these other two other names. It was the same situation. They didn’t fulfill their commitment with me.”
