Former Alberto Del Rio Says He Is Signing Two US Deals In 2015

El Patron, the former Alberto Del Rio continues to make headlines. Patron made his first US post-WWE appearance over the weekend at a House of Hardcore show and according to the former WWE star, you can expect to see a lot more of him in the United States real soon.

Patron made his first U.S. appearance this past weekend only a week after receiving a full release from his WWE contract. Prior to the release, Patron was barred from appearing on any pro wrestling shows in the United States for one year. Patron and the WWE settled, lifting that stipulation and opening up the door for some big things here in the States.

Patron talked to Bill Apter on the Apter Chat where they talked about his future. Patron gave a quick interview and told Apter that he will be signing deals with two pro wrestling companies in the United States. Patron revealed that both company have television and the deals will be signed in January.

This immediately set the Internet on fire with several reports concluding that Patron was signing with TNA Wrestling. The speculation would seem to make sense. TNA is expected to sign a new deal imminently with Destination America. However, TNA may not be the only game in town from what I hear.

It is just as possible that Patron will be signing with Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling. Jarrett is looking for a television deal and looking to make a splash. Now I am not really sure what Jarrett has to offer at the moment without a TV deal. However, I have heard rumblings that it is actually Jarrett’s GCW that is expected to land Patron and not TNA.

Patron is also expected to sign with the Lucha Underground promotion. That was expected from the start, some even speculating that before he left the WWE. Patron will appear on their U.S. television sometime next year. He is expected to be the centerpiece of the promotion, along with Rey Mysterio if Rey can get out of his WWE deal.

Check out the interview with the legendary Bill Apter and brace yourself for a heavy dose of El Patron in 2015.
