As noted before, Alberto El Patron (Del Rio) starts with Ring of Honor on January 3rd in Nashville at the TV tapings. He faces Christopher Daniels on that show. It’s interesting that he’s signed to several shows because Alberto is not cheap and ROH’s budget is low, unless he is doing a favor for them.
He is also booked for the 1/30 show in Dearborn, MI against ACH. That was announced today on ROH’s website. He’s booked on 1/31 in Dayton, and the 3/1 pay-per-view in Las Vegas. AJ Styles noted this week that he believes he will be on the 3/1 show as well.
The original idea for Adam Cole (who announced this week that he needs to get shoulder surgery) was for him to feud with Alberto for the ROH title. Alberto has said that he only wants to work with guys with big enough names that people would consider them big matches.
