When asked if he would be willing to fight CM Punk in a UFC match, Alberto Del Rio said he would if the offer was fair and right. However, that does not mean that there is any animosity between the two former WWE stars. They're just competitive guys who are on friendly terms. Del Rio even stated that he was going to attend the debut match of Punk, which still has not been booked by Dana White.

Right before Impact Wrestling made its debut on Destination America, TNA wanted to make a big splash by signing a well known performer to make a surprise appearance. A $400,000 contract was put on the table for Alberto Del Rio. Management even sweetened the deal by limiting the amount of appearances that he would be required to make during the year. For whatever reasons, the former world heavyweight champion declined the offer.

Since the company wants to make a big splash when they make their Destination America debut on Wednesday, TNA is said to be making a mad dash right now to get Alberto Del Rio to sign on the dotted line. A huge amount of money is said to be on the table because the move would generate a bit of a buzz. There could be a chance that Del Rio signs a temporary contract to make the move happen. Negotiations would be ongoing after that.
