Former WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio in the WWE Hall of Fame is a controversial subject, but one the Mexican Superstar is not afraid of fanning the flames of.
The man now known as Alberto El Patron has recently posted to Twitter to show he credentials as a WWE Hall of Famer, despite being recently charged with sexual assault and kidnapping during a tumultuous 2021.
The WWE Hall of Fame does have it’s own share of controversies. Other criminals have been inducted into the Hall of Fame, like Jimmy Snuka who reportedly murdered his girlfriend, and other reprehensible characters like Hulk Hogan. With these names front and centre of this Hall of Fame, there is an argument to be made that Alberto Del Rio belongs among them.
He previously had a relationship with WWE Superstar Paige, who is rumoured to be signing for AEW next month, which ended in tears when Alberto Del Rio was accused of domestic abuse by the former WWE Divas Champion.
On social media, Del Rio posted a tweet detailing his achievements in WWE, and accompanied it with a photo of himself edited on top of the WWE Hall of Fame logo.
“4 times World Heavyweight Champion. Winner of the biggest battle royal in WWE history. Money in the Bank winner. 2 times WWE United States Champion. I will do my best to raise the Mexican flag once,”Alberto Del Rio on Twitter.
With his accolades, as he points out, Alberto Del Rio would be a key member of the WWE Hall of Fame if inducted. Being a four time world champion puts him on a very limited list, as does his Royal Rumble and Money in the Bank victory.
Has has huge wins against stars like CM Punk and John Cena and was being primed as one of the top stars in WWE and the biggest Mexican star since Eddie Guerrero.
As the first Mexican born WWE Champion, he is deserving of a spot in the WWE Hall of Fame. However, odds are Alberto Del Rio won’t be inducted in the Hall of Fame due to his personal life and crimes in recent years, as well as the way he has spoken about WWE since his release in 2016.
