Alberto Del Rio was named President of Combate Americas, which is the reason that he has been going by the name Alberto El Presidente lately.

Alberto spoke to ESPN about his new position, and stated that he agreed to it as soon as it was offered by CEO Campbell McLaren. Del Rio said that he will continue to wrestle part-time while working to recruit talent and grow the company.

"I'm going to be recruiting fighters and I'm going to be there to help them get to the place that they want to get," Alberto said. "We have a lot of talent in the company. Most of that talent is Hispanic. That makes me really happy to be able to help them."

He added that he hopes to let his pro wrestling experience help him in his new venture.

"I am going to try and bring all of that experience to not just make great fighters, but great entertainers," he said. "We know Ronda [Rousey] and [Conor] McGregor are great fighters but they are also showmen. McGregor is an amazing fighter and his Octagon skills are not in debate. But the reason why he has accomplished all of those things is because he is a showman. And people want to see him winning or losing -- but they want to see him.
