Update On Alberto Del Rio Returning To WWE Once Again

Alberto Del Rio first signed with WWE back in the summer of 2009. After a year in WWE’s FCW developmental territory, Del Rio was sent to SmackDown where he was given a pretty substantial push.

Less than a year after debuting on the main roster, Del Rio won the 2011 Royal Rumble and went on to challenge Edge for the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania XXVII.

After a few runs with both the WWE and World Heavyweight titles, Del Rio left WWE in August 2014, with the company releasing him due to “unprofessional conduct” following an altercation with an employee who reportedly made a racist joke.

He would return to the company after just over a year, defeating John Cena for the United States Championship at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view in October 2015. He would leave WWE for the second time after just ten months.

Del Rio seemingly suggested that he and Vince McMahon had been in “communication” over the possibility of a return to the company. The former WWE Champion said he hoped to be back by the middle of 2020.

It was initially reported by Fightful that the story of Del Rio returning to WWE is nothing short of “bulls***”, and we seem to have more confirmation that the former Impact star will not be working for Vince McMahon anytime soon.

Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT is reporting via Twitter that no one within WWE has reached out to Del Rio with the prospect of returning.

While it may seem like Del Rio was telling a bit of a lie when he said he and WWE had been in communication, would you like to have seen him return to the company? Let us know on Twitter.
