Report: Alberto Del Rio To TNA?


TNA representatives have reached out to Alberto Del Rio, according to reports.

Del Rio was released from WWE on Thursday after an altercation with an employee during a television taping. It’s thought that TNA attempted to contact Del Rio just minutes after the announcement of his release.

In a post on the F4W forums, Dave Meltzer confirmed that TNA staff had indeed tried to get in contact with Del Rio, with a view to bringing in the former WWE Champion at the company’s next television taping.

It’s speculated that TNA may be looking at this and other options in a move to appease Spike after reports that the company cancelled their television deal last month, however Meltzer also notes that Del Rio will likely¬†have a ninety-day no compete clause, effectively ruling out a move to TNA any time soon.
