Hard to describe what this moment was like.... if I hung up my boots tomorrow I've already accomplished what I set out to do...🙏 ..... But I'm not!!!! The looks on both my son's and my wife's faces were priceless after the match..... I will never forget that moment. @wwe #whosnext #royalrumble #thankuall #every1isnext- Alberto Del Rio, who was also scheduled for today’s WCPW event, missed the show due to what he claims were travel issues. He noted the following on Instagram:
Apologies to everyone going to the @whatcultureprowrestling looks like I won't be making it to today's show, you know how it is with airline companies, can't change that but will 100% be there for the show and meet and greet Thursday in Newcastle. If you need me I'll be stuck in an airport for 20 hours. 😫
