One wrestler majorly affected by Alberto Del Rio’s return to WWE is Rey Mysterio.
While the former WWE Superstar is committed to Lucha Underground for one season — taping resumes next Saturday — he wants WWE to be an option after he fulfills his contractual obligations. It may still happen in the future, but Vince McMahon isn’t going to break the bank for him now. One wrestler was going to cash in on WWE’s urgent need for a wrestler to appeal to the Spanish-speaking audience and Del Rio is the one that cashed in.
With that being said, WWE higher-ups also strongly preferred Del Rio of the two because even though he is only two years younger than Mysterio, he has the size WWE prefers in its talent and isn’t riddled by injuries.

It documents every reincarnation, rival, WrestleMania opponent, pay-per-view match and everything that contributed to The Deadman’s rise to prominence in WWE. The book is written entirely in kayfabe, so there is no insight on The Deadman or behind the scenes stories.
