– TNA recently made another play for former WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio (El Patron). Apparently they made a very serious money offer – a rumored one-year deal for $400,000.
TNA is reportedly asking for exclusivity, which could be a problem as Del Rio is planning to work with El Rey and AAA’s Lucha Underground in 2015. TNA may have to drop the request for exclusivity or up the money to get Del Rio. TNA is trying to sell Del Rio on the idea that he will have more US TV exposure with TNA than with anyone else.
TNA is trying hard to get Del Rio due to John Gaburick working closely with Del Rio in WWE.
