Alberto El Patron has made no secret about the fact he likes to talk. His unfiltered opinion is one of the reasons why he is both so widely loved and slightly despised.
So when the former Alberto Del Rio spoke to Medio Tiempo it was no big surprise he would say a couple newsworthy things. During the interview translated from Spanish, Alberto not only seemed to throw Paige and her family under the bus for his problems with WWE but also proclaimed the fact his relationship with WWE is much better now.
“I apologized to Triple H for the issues we were in when I was in the relationship with my ex-partner. She and her entire family made me believe that those who affected our relationship were [WWE], specifically [Triple H]. She made me believe that the videos (compromising of the fighter) and all that was outside was by Triple H and the company. At the time I believed her because she was my partner, I defended her by heart and sword.”
It seems that Alberto was led to believe WWE was trying to break the couple up when that wasn’t the case at all.
So, when it comes to returning to WWE it looks like Alberto is well on his way to making that happen. It might not take place this year, but if he does intend on retiring in 2019, he made some strong allusions to the fact it could be under the WWE banner even though he isn’t looking for anything full-time.
“Of course I would go back, I would not go back, but I would make a special appearance before I put on my wrestling boots and it will surely happen, surely before I retire I will do something special with them.”
“I see very difficult in 2018, but in 2019 before leaving I’m definitely going to do something with them, we shook hands and everything I fine right now. Time heals wounds.”
This is a very interesting situation, to say the least, but if Alberto Del Rio returned to WWE it could spark enough interest to make it worth their time. After all, there are still plenty of fans in the WWE Universe who probably miss chanting, “si, si, si” in the direction of Mexico’s Greatest Export.
