Are they interested? There have been a lot of wrestlers to come and go through WWE over the years with some of them being more famous than others. Only a handful have reached the top of the company as the World Champion though, and that is the case for a reason. Holding one of those championships is a special honor and now someone who has done it before is interested in returning.

During an interview with SportsKeeda, Alberto El Patron, formerly known as Alberto Del Rio in WWE, said that he would be open to a return to WWE in the future. El Patron said that he is sorry for the mistakes that he made and would consider a return as he has learned nothing is personal in wrestling. He mentioned that several of his issues with WWE took place as he was going through a divorce, which put him into a depression. There is no word on if WWE would be interested in having him back, possibly due to El Patron’s ex-fiance Paige working for the company. The two of them have accused each other of domestic violence.

El Patron, 44, has wrestled for WWE on two separate occasions. His first run with the company lasted from 2009-2014 and ended when he was fired for assaulting a WWE employee over a racist joke. He would return to the company in 2015 and leave in 2016, this time opting out of his contract over being unhappy with his position in the company. During his time in WWE, he was a four time World Champion, along with a two time United States Champion. El Patron also won Money in the Bank and the Royal Rumble.

El Patron was a big deal in WWE. Check out his time there:

Opinion: That sounds like a rather one sided idea as I’m not sure I can imagine WWE wanting El Patron back. He was successful in the company, but he has a lot of baggage and has already left the company twice. That is not the kind of situation that is going to make the company interested in bringing back a wrestler in his mid 40s who has not wrestled in over a year.

Will El Patron wrestle for a major promotion again? Do you want him back in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
