Konnan recently appeared on the MLW.com podcast,and stated that Alberto Del Rio was ready to quit WWE and return to Mexico prior to being called up.

"The trainers over at FCW told me that when [Del Rio] came in, he was terrible. He said basically, I'm not making any money here [in developmental], I'm going home. My wife is pregnant and I'm out. I'm going back to Mexico."

"John Laurinaitis told one of the trainers, we're going to be inducting Mil Mascaras into the Hall of Fame and we kind of want someone to induct him. We need to push a Latino guy. Just put him on the road and see how he does."
