We’ve noted now TNA has made a very strong play for former WWE Champion Alberto El Patron (Alberto Del Rio) that included six-figures and a desirable schedule. Del Rio isn’t the only former top WWE star they’re interested in as the company is waiting to make a play for Rey Mysterio once he’s officially done with WWE, which is expected to be soon.
TNA is prepared to make a similar offer, if not better, to Mysterio once they legally can negotiate with him. It’s been said by people close to Rey that he will end up in Lucha Underground and AAA but it will be interesting to see if TNA can offer him enough. For what it’s worth, some of those same people close to Rey believe that he will pass up TNA for AAA and Lucha Underground.
