Alberto Del Rio reveals his new name; Says he wants to wrestle this Sunday

There was a press conference today in Mexico City with Alberto Del Rio and AAA President Joaquin Roldan. Del Rio announced that he no longer will be using the name Del Rio because WWE owns the name. Going forward he will be known as El Patron (The Boss). El Patron was his nickname on the Spanish language version of WWE programming but it was never trademarked by WWE.

He also said that his 90 day no compete won’t allow him to wrestle but his lawyers are working on it and hopefully will be able to wrestle this Sunday at TripleMania. If he doesn’t wrestle it would only put more heat on WWE and make him a bigger babyface. He challenged El Texano Jr. for the AAA Mega heavyweight title.

He didn’t give details about his firing from WWE because of legal reasons but said that he would talk about it in a few weeks. He said that he doesn’t know Rey Mysterio’s situation. Roldan said that Mysterio is under contract with WWE and as long as that’s the case then they can’t tamper with him but they would be open to bringing him in once his contract expires.
