Alberto Del Rio has talked about possibly taking retirement from Pro Wrestling within a couple of years in several interviews in the past and the former World Champion repeated his comments during a recent conference call.
Alberto said that he is tired of all the Bulls**t behind the door and claimed that the keyword worries and the backstabbing is what making him think of leaving the business pretty soon:
“I’m tired of all the b.s. behind doors, behind the curtains. B.S. drama with promoters, companies, keyboard warriors, all the backstabbing, the darkside of wrestling. So that’s what’s making me think of leaving the business pretty soon, and also because life is fantastic and I’ve been really blessed and lucky with all the projects that I have coming my way.
Continuing on the topic, Del Rio said that he will wrestle for another year in 2018 and then will possibly have a retirement tour in 2019:
“Also my work with Combate America, which is going fantastic because the company keeps climbing and climbing to the top. So that’s the reason why I want to stop, I’ve been saying that I’ll do 2018 and then maybe 2019 I’ll start like a farewell tour.”
Though later in the interview Alberto Del Rio noted how things can change in a year and while he currently plans to leave pro wrestling very soon, he could end up competing for several more years.
