Alberto El Patron returns to AAA to wrestle at Marquee events


Alberto El Patron (Del Rio in WWE) returns to AAA. It was announced that El Patron will participate in the Lucha Libre World Cup and Guerra de Rivalidades.

AAA broke the news during their official Press Conference on Tuesday (January 17) to reveal plans for 2023.

The fourth edition of the Lucha Lucha World Cup returns after a six-year hiatus. The concept debuted in 2015 and returned the following year in 2016. Both events were held in Mexico City, Mexico. The third edition traveled to Tokyo, Japan for 2017. And now, it’s time to bring the Lucha World Cup back on March 19, 2023 in Guadalajara, Mexico.

There will be tournaments for this year’s Lucha Libre World Cup for men and women. The men’s team runs 8 deep teams for triple action. There will be two teams from Mexico, one team from USA, Canada, Japan, UK and Latin America, and the final team will be made up of talents from the rest of the world. The Latin American team will feature wrestlers from South America and Puerto Rico. The Universal Team is attached to the new partnership between AAA and Qatar Pro Wrestling, so talent from QPW is expected to fill out this team. The women’s category will feature a total of four teams from Mexico, USA, Japan and Rest of the World.

AAA announced the entrants for a men’s trio to represent Mexico at the tournament. AAA megacampeonato Hijo Del Vikingo, Psycho Clown and Alberto El Patron are the Dream Team.

The Lucha Libre World Cup would be Alberto’s first match with AAA since 2015, when El Patron held the AAA Mega Championship for 337 days before vacating the title and returning to WWE.
