Alberto Del Rio joins MMA

While professional wrestling is where he makes his bread and butter, Alberto Del Rio has long had an interest in MMA. He has yet to receive the right offer to step back into the ring for a fight. However, he still wanted a way to be involved in the sport. Del Rio has found that way. The former world heavyweight champion has signed on to work as an announcer for a promotion in Mexico.

Alberto Del Rio scarf

Back when he was in WWE, Alberto Del Rio used to wear a scarf to the ring. The reason for that is because Vince McMahon hated the fact that Chris Jericho wore scarves backstage all the time. McMahon feels that it is a feminine product to wear. Since he hated it so much, McMahon felt that the scarves would bring even further heat to the heel character that Del Rio was portraying.

Ricardo Rodriguez to LU

Since he is a big name performer that is willing to work with them, the belief was that Alberto Del Rio had a ton of backstage stroke with Lucha Underground. That might not necessarily be the case. The former world heavyweight champion tried to convince management to bring his good friend, Ricardo Rodriguez, on board, but a deal was never signed.

Since everyone has been quite concerned with his well being after missing a show, Alberto Del Rio has decided to take to social media to explain to everyone that he was not able to attend the charity event due to personal reasons.

Alberto Del Rio no show

Since he has yet to post a response, Alberto Del Rio is being viewed as quite the real life villain right now. The former world heavyweight champion was scheduled to work an independent wrestling show in Houston, where much of the proceeds would go towards a charity. He never showed up, and the promoters are claiming that he never even made contact with them to provide an explanation.

Alberto Del Rio rejects UFC

Back when he was a free agent, Alberto Del Rio was fielding offers from several companies. One of those companies was UFC. The promotion really wanted the former world heavyweight champion to come in and do a couple of fights. However, Del Rio was forced to reject their offer because the two sides could not come to terms on money. He stated that he was doing so well in professional wrestling that it would be a pay cut to jump to MMA.

Lucha Underground ending

On April 19, Lucha Underground is taping a very special two hour episode. It will bring closure to all of their current story lines, and there should be plenty of surprises that evening. The general feeling right now is that this could be the very final episode that the promotion runs. They have lost millions of dollars over the past year. If Rey Mysterio and Alberto Del Rio are not able to sell the network on another season, then this is the end of the road.
