Alberto Del Rio thanks his father, Dos Caras
Del Rio has been dealing with the problems since a long time and his life was in turmoil. During the interview he revealed that he weighed seventy pounds overweight and had to deal with severe depression.
It was his father, the legendary Dos Caras who stood by him and motivated him to get back in shape and return to the wrestling scene.
Alberto Del Rio referred Dos Caras as ‘his boss,’ and said that he had played a significant role in Del Rio’s recovery from all the problems.
He then paid a heartfelt tribute to his father, who is considered one of the greatest heavyweight talents in Mexican wrestling history.
“Thank you for so many years of affection and love. To my boss (father), Dos Caras, to my daddy, my old man who is watching this interview and who told me when I was with two hundred and seventy-something pounds (overweight) with depression and told me: ‘Get up, you bastard. You are my son, and I raised you to be the greatest. Get up because you are not finished, and they are waiting for you out there’. My dear old man (father), I love you with all my heart.”
Alberto Del Rio is all set to return to the squared circle as he is scheduled to square off against Andrade near the end of July.
