Why Alberto Del Rio Was Pulled From WrestleMania

In a surprising move, especially after his return at Elimination Chamber, Alberto Del Rio was never actually named as an official member of “Team Johnny” for the 12-man tag match at WrestleMania. Reports indicate that WWE officials looked at the 12-man match and felt that Del Rio didn’t fit in. The rumor is that they are planning on pushing Del Rio soon after ‘Mania and didn’t want him in a match that will be one big spot-fest.

It’s been said for a while now that WWE has something grander planned for Del Rio in 2012. Instead of returning in the 12-man match, officials want Del Rio to have a more dramatic return to the company. The original plan was to do Del Rio vs. Randy Orton at WrestleMania and sources report that the Orton vs. Del Rio feud is still planned for later in the year.
