Twice now, Alberto Del Rio has proven that he is a team player by doing the right thing and using his former world heavyweight champion status to elevate Kalisto, a performer that WWE thinks can sell a lot of merchandise for them.

While there have been rumors about him receiving a push from WWE, Kalisto might shockingly be wrestling for a singles title at the Royal Rumble later on this month.

This would be the highest profile match for Kalisto since being called up to the main roster.

Since WWE will not allow Alberto Del Rio to return to Mexico to drop the Mega Championship, AAA officials have decided to simply strip him of the belt and do a tournament to crown a new champion. The former world heavyweight championship really wanted to do the right thing and honor tradition, but his contract would not allow it. AAA does not have any backstage heat towards Del Rio because they understand the situation.

While WWE will not allow Alberto Del Rio to make a return to AAA to drop his championship, they have no problems with him heading down to Puerto Rico to work a WWC event.

Management is allowing Del Rio to do that because they are on friendly terms with the promotion.

When Alberto Del Rio made his surprising return to WWE, officials in AAA were under the impression that he would be returning to their promotion to drop the Mega Championship to another performer.

It also forced AAA to postpone their television taping.

One of the problems with Alberto Del Rio returning to WWE is that it left AAA in the cold. The promotion is aware that the former world heavyweight champion is booked for an upcoming tour of Europe and is scheduled for Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. However, they need him to return at least for a night, so that Del Rio can drop the AAA Mega Championship to another performer.

A rather interesting thing took place at the ROH anniversary show on Sunday night. Jay Lethal cut a promo before defending the Television Championship against Alberto Del Rio. One of the things he said will probably not sit well with AJ Lee and CM Punk. Lethal stated that he was not someone that would take things that are handed down to him. He then pointed out that Punk was a guy that took a girl that he handed down.
