Former WWE star El Patron (Alberto Del Rio) just made an appearance at Tommy Dreamer’s House of Hardcore event on Saturday night at the former ECW Arena in Philadelphia. Former WWE star Ricardo Rodriguez did the official introduction of Del Rio.
During a promo, Del Rio talked about being happy to perform in the United States as he didn’t think he would be able to do it for a full year due to his prior situation with WWE. At one point during the promo, the live audience started a “F*ck McMahon” chant.
Del Rio added that he had to accept Dreamer’s invite and that in House of Hardcore “we aren’t sports entertainers, we are f*cking wrestlers!” Brian Myers (former WWE star Curt Hawkins) then attacked Del Rio who put Myers in his cross armbreaker to end the segment.
