AAA World Heavyweight Champion Alberto el Patron (former WWE Champion Alberto del Rio) made his debut for Lucha Underground at a television taping event in Los Angeles on Saturday night.

El Rey sent out a press release immediately following the event, confirming that El Patron had officially signed a contract with the promotion.

As we have been reporting, numerous outlets including TNA Wrestling and Bellator MMA have been scouting the world champion, and he is announced for multiple dates with Ring of Honor for the next several months. At this point it is unknown what level of exclusivity, if any, El Rey holds over Alberto as an in-ring performer. We have reached out to the network for comment, and will provide updates should more information become available.

Lucha Underground airs Wednesday nights at 8:00pm on El Rey Network and on Saturdays at 4:00 pm in Spanish on UniMás.
