ALBERTO DEL RIO BECOMES NEW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION

When Alberto Del Rio signed up with the Impact Wrestling promotion, the news was revealed from several quarters.


The creative alongside Jeff Jarrett showed interest to bring the former WWE champion into the show which is witnessing some big voids, as of now.

Last night’s Impact Wrestling tapings saw the Mexican Superstar debut for Impact Wrestling with his new name, Alberto El Patron. He went on to challenge Bobby Lashley, the reigning World champion, for a title match on the show.

Lashley accepted and set up the main event of the night, one in which Del Patron was declared the winner. Despite a lot of controversies muddled up in the finishing segment of the match, officials did not hesitate to announce the new superstar as the winner and the new champion.

On Thursday, the actual video footages will go on the air and everyone would be able to witness how the new champions were crowned.

The American aristocrat, according to reports from the PWisider, hesitated while signing up with the promotion. That was the major reason why his debut was delayed to an extent. However, the former 4-time champion could never have asked for a better debut.

Now under their wings, he would be receiving a big push as he projects into the near future. His girlfriend, Paige was also spotted during the event at night. She was present at the backstage as the show tapings rolled on.

Paige is still under contract with WWE. As such, it is yet to be seen whether they would take her appearance on a rival promotion event lightly or not. For Del Rio however, he might just have found the best place for him where he can continue, and go on to become the main star of the event.
