Alberto Del Rio believes his upcoming match will be ‘a thousand times better’ than Samoa Joe vs. Brock Lesnar

Alberto Del Rio

In an interesting interview with Sports Illustrated, Alberto Del Rio talked about his upcoming match at Slammiversary against Bobby Lashley and claimed that it will top the match of Samoa Joe and Brock Lesnar.

The reason behind this according to Del Rio is the fact that WWE does not give the same creative freedom to their wrestlers which Impact does:

“Our match is going to be a thousand times better. I have deep respect for Brock Lesnar and Samoa Joe, and I know they’ll give the fans an amazing match, but they’ll be limited by the politics in that company. That company won’t let one of them give one-hundred percent to the audience, they’re going to hold them back. Impact Wrestling says, ‘Here is the ring, go do your thing.’”

Later in the Interview, he also talked about his time in WWE and the time when he called Vince McMahon to tell him that he is quitting the company:

“I never lost passion for the pro wrestling business. I lost respect for that other company. …I realised that it was not the business; it was the place where I was working. So I decided to call the one that matters in that company and said, ‘I’m sorry, sir. Thank you for the opportunity and thank you for everything, but I’m not happy in this place and I need to move on.’”

While it will be up to fans to decide which match was better once we are through both Great Balls and Fire and Slammiversary, the comments of Alberto Del Rio have surely raised the anticipation for his upcoming bout.

    As Gorilla Monsoon used to say…..

    “The guys with the white coats and the big net are looking for this guy.”

    What a load for crap this guy is nuts.

    And more people will see the Joe/Lesnar match. And more people will give a damn about the Joe/Lesnar match. And anything Del Rio says is a thousand times more pointless than anything anyone else says.

    He has no idea what restraints there will or wont be on their match, so if he really had “deep respect” for Joe and Lesnar, he would not be bad mouthing their match before it even happens.

    And just for the record, just because his match does not have any “restraints”, does not mean it will be better. Sometimes wrestlers need to be controlled or they go over the top. Sometimes less is more.
