Alberto Del Rio, now known as Alberto El Patron recently live-streamed a few videos via Periscope, and he was very open about his feelings regarding WWE. During one of the videos Alberto said that he’s never going back to the company, and he also claimed that they tried to get him to return.
PWInsider is reporting that the claims made by the former Alberto Del Rio are true. According to the report, the company did try to get Alberto to return, and Vince McMahon was the one who wanted to bring him back.
Unfortunately for Vince, Alberto declined the offer, and it sounds like he’ll be closing out his career with Impact Wrestling.
The former Alberto Del Rio recently spoke to FightfulWrestling.com and he revealed that he’s currently working on a handshake deal with Jeff Jarrett. He noted that the two sides are getting ready to close on his contract and he plans to retire in Impact Wrestling.
“Jeff Jarrett called me and said let’s do it. He said they were willing to do this for me and if that makes you happy then we would love to have you on board. We even did a gentleman’s agreement. He was like, ‘Do you want to do a contract just for a week so you can see what we are going to be doing’? I said, ‘No, let’s do it the way gentleman do it. Let’s shake hands and I’ll go work for you. I will trust you. You know me and know I always deliver and what I bring to the table. I will do those four TV tapings and after those TV tapings we will sit down. If you don’t think my work is worth what I’m asking for then you say right there and I’ll give you a big discount’. But of course after those four TV tapings, they were completely happy with me not just because of what I bring to the table but what I bring to the ring but what I bring outside the ring with fans, sponsors, helping the talent backstage to do their job better. I made them happy and they made me happy. At the moment, we are closing the final details of what is going to be my contract. Then, I will be joining TNA for good and retire in the company.”
