WNZ Open Season: Do You Want Del Rio Back?

This one couldn’t get much more direct. When I saw rumors that WWE wanted Alberto Del Rio back, I was incredulous. I really can’t figure this one out, outside WWE brass recognizing that they really don’t have a strong and credible draw for the Hispanic demographic (even though I really thought a team like Lucha Dragons had a chance, and may still..).

So, straight forward, really direct. Would you want Alberto Del Rio back in WWE?

For me, the answer is complex. On the one hand, I did like the character and how he worked in the ring, even if he did come off as a Hispanic rendition of JBL, But the reality surrounding him is he has baggage given how and why he departed the company, and how he’s spoken about the company since his departure. As good as he might have been in WWE, he was not so amazing that it’s easy to forgive and forget what transpired. And, if you open the door and bring him back, don’t you open the door for a rapid return of someone like Hulk Hogan, who it seemed had made a bonfire of his own legacy not that long ago?

And, it’s worth mentioning that, in this scenario, Del Rio would seem to have all the leverage. If the rumors are true that WWE wants him back, and not the other way around, then Alberto can (and should) ask for the moon and stars if he wants to come back.

What say you, readers of WNZ…Should Alberto come back? Do you want him back?

    I’m a little perplexed on this one too. If I’m Del Rio do I want to go back to a place who I believed did me an injustice and allowed a fellow employee to be racist towards me and not suffer any consequences apart from the slap I gave him? I’d be thinking if I go back they are going to bury me but at the same time they need me to B A Star (see what I did there)
    You bring Del Rio back you need to bring Ricardo back plain and simple. Del Rio has to be a heel and use his old gimmic of fortune and limos, but you already knew that!
    I for one won’t be marking out if he does return, however wouldn’t mind seeing him get into some fresh feuds.

    Yeah. The heel roster is rather lackluster these days. And I don’t get the HH reference, the way i see it Del Rio was instigated to do what he did which he admitted to have been uncalled for on his part even though it was in the heat of moment or so, whereas Hogan did the stuff on his own will.
