There is a silver lining to the shoulder injury suffered by Sin Cara. It has allowed WWE to give a small push to Kalisto. On Smackdown, the masked performer was given an upset victory over Alberto Del Rio. The move was done so that a title match can be set up between the two of them. In 2015, World Wrestling Entertainment gave him a little push when they had him in the tournament to crown a new world champion.

In major international wrestling news, Alberto Del Rio has captured the AAA World Heavyweight Championship. He defeated El Texano, Jr, who has held the belt for two years, in the main event of Guerra de Titanes.

He has long yearned for a return to Mexico because he knew that the promotions down there would push him as a legitimate headliner.
