We noted earlier this week that former WWE Superstar Alberto “El Patron” Del Rio won the WWL Heavyweight Title in Puerto Rico. According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there was a segment where Del Rio asked heel owner Richard Negrin if he was trying to protect “a Yankee like the racists in WWE.”

Del Rio ended up aligning with Negrin and is now in a stable called Gentleman’s Club. Del Rio, the leader, is joined by former WWE Superstar Eric Escobar, Hiram Tua and Bryan Madness. Del Rio’s other family members - father Dos Caras Sr., brother El Hijo de Dos Caras and cousin El Sicodelico Jr., also worked the event. They lost to WWL Trios Champions Dennis Rivera, Noel Rodriguez and Stefano.
