Backstage Update On Alberto Del Rio's New WWE Contract And How Much He's Making

- In regards to the report from The Wrestling Observer Newsletter on Alberto Del Rio's new WWE contract, they posted an update today that says the new WWE United States Champion may make the reported $1.45 million over the next year in WWE but he was not given a guarantee close to that.


PWInsider notes that the $1.45 million figure may be close to three times what Del Rio's actual downside guarantee is.

It appears the main reason for Del Rio returning is that when the Lucha Underground deal fell apart, he just wanted to return to WWE and that's it.

It's still unknown whether or not WWE will allow Del Rio to return to AAA to drop the Mega Heavyweight Title but most believe Vince McMahon won't allow one of his top talents to lose on another wrestling TV program.
