The former WWE champion has had a rough relationship with the WWE. Alberto El Patron, known as Alberto Del Rio in the WWE, made some very serious remarks against the Executive Vice President of Talent Relations, Triple H after he departed the company.
In fact, he did this after he left in 2014 and in 2016. However, he has gone on record saying that he has since apologized to Triple H and Vince McMahon. Back in January, Patron blamed his erratic behavior on his former fiancée, Paige. He also said that he believes he’ll return to the WWE one more time before he retires.
Well, we might be seeing that happen sooner rather than later. According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, Patron was at WWE HQ last week to take part in a project about Rey Mysterio. However, he also met personally with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.
Could Patron be working on a return to the WWE? It’s possible. Johnson had also stated before that McMahon is high on the idea of bringing Patron back.
Mexico’s Greatest Export is still under contract with Impact, but the deal expires next month. He could join the rest of the talent from Impact who have left this year.
At this moment, Alberto El Patron is scheduled to take on Austin Aries for the Impact World Championship at their Redemption PPV. He is also scheduled to appear for AAA’s TripleMania XXVI in August, taking on another “international luchador.” So if he’s heading over to the WWE, it probably won’t happen until late 2018.
