SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Alberto Del Rio is dependable for his candor in WWE media interviews whereas others might be guarded and give canned answers not wanting to ruffle feathers.
Wrapped around positive comments about WrestleMania and WWE’s international appeal, Del Rio revealed to the media in Spain that League of Nations will likely disband soon.
Del Rio said the group was put together for WrestleMania to try to create strength in numbers because of so many injuries to the roster. The group dumped King Barrett to write him out of TV, but continued after Mania to feud with The Wyatts.
However, with Bray Wyatt being injured on the European Tour, Del Rio said the League no longer has a purpose.
“We as a group have never worked very well, so we decided that it is better to separate,” Del Rio said in Spanish, as translated by SoloWrestling.com. “I think Bray Wyatt is hurt, and all this will come to nothing.”
WWE randomly had the two heel factions start feuding after WrestleMania with no storyline explanation. Then, Bray Wyatt was abruptly shifted to a favorable face role partnering with Roman Reigns on the Raw before he was injured. Now that Bray is out of the picture for an undetermined length of time due to injury, Del Rio said it’s time to move on.
Del Rio said he wants to pursue singles feuds again, mainly challenging for the WWE World Title.
Del Rio also said that WWE is considering a full-fledged tour of Spain. He said the tour finale in Malaga, Spain was an experiment to see how well a town besides the big cities of Madrid and Barcelona would draw.
