Alberto Del Rio ready to return to WWE after winning court case

Alberto Del Rio set to return to wrestling after he won his court case against Vince Mcmahon and WWE. The WWE superstar was fired from his job last month for hitting a social media employee Cody Barbierri at WWE. Most of the WWE staff was amazed to see this kind of behavior from Del Rio before the true story revealed. The former WWE Champion slapped Cody as he passed on racial comment against him.

WWE not only fired Del Rio but also entered a non-compete clause in his release from the company. The non-compete clause states that once a wrestler is cut from the company then he will not be able to appear on a televised event for 90days though being able to work at Independent shows. The Mexican wrestler wanted to work with AAA in Mexico and it being a televised event took WWE to the court in order to drop this clause. He succeeded in winning his case and will now be able to appear with any televised event he chooses.

Similar kind of thing happened to another former WWE Champion Daniel Bryan at WWE. During the time of his NXT debut, Bryan went too far to sell Nexus attack when he ended up choking WWE announcer Justin Roberts with his own tie. Bryan was released from the Company for this famously known as ‘tie-gate’ event. Bryan then ended up working in a huge Independent tour which made him more popular after the exposure he had received from WWE. After that when things blew over Daniel again returned to WWE and the rest is history.

WWE tried to do same with Alberto Del Rio but the difference here was that he himself was planning to leave the company after his contract expires as he was growing old and was finding difficult to cope up with schedules of WWE. Del Rio has decided to join the AAA making his debut at Sept 14. He will be teaming up with La Parka and formerly WWE’s Sin Cara known as Myzteziz against Texano, Jr., Averno and El Hijo del Perro Aguayo for his debut in the Mexican lucha libre organization.

Mayweather sets September return date

It has only been around two weeks since Floyd Mayweather Jr. defeated Marcos Maidana and unified the Welterweight titles after securing a unanimous decision victory and now, the undefeated American has already set a date for his next fight.

Mayweather Jr. will take to the ring once again on the 13th of September, with the opponent to be decided later.

According to an executive of Mayweather Promotions, Floyd will step inside the ring once again on the 13th of September and they are still in the process of finalizing who his opponent is going to be. He also added that Las Vegas is the home of the American and the MGM Grand Garden Arena is always his preferred venue for the fight but there are other venues under consideration as well.

The pay per view event comes as a part of Floyd’s six fight deal with the Showtime/CBS deal which is reportedly worth $ 200 million and this fight will be the fourth one of that deal.

Mayweather Jr. defeated the Argentina Maidana on points in what was arguably one of the toughest fights he has had in his career at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, where he fought for the ninth straight time but according to sources close to him, he is considering an offer to fight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

According to a source close to the American, the opponent will also be finalized within the next two weeks and the undefeated boxer will make an announcement regarding the fight after that.

However, a September date means British boxer Amir Khan has been ruled out of the fight due to religious reasons and according to an executive of Mayweather’s promotion, if Khan wants to fight the American, it will have to be in September.
