Former WWE Superstar Alberto Del Rio made a surprise appearance at Saturday night’s House of Hardcore 7 iPPV from Philadelphia, PA (Order Here). Ricardo Rodriguez was also there and introduced Del Rio to the rabid crowd.
Del Rio said he was so happy to be there because just a week ago, he didn’t think he’d be able to wrestle in the United States for a year. Del Rio said it was great to be in the ECW Arena for the first time, which led to an ECW! chant and then a “F*CK MCMAHON” chant. Del Rio said in House of Hardcore, they are wrestlers, not Sports Entertainers.
Del Rio fought off an attack from Brian Myers, locked in the cross-armbreaker and got him to tap.
Afterwards, they tweeted:
What an honor to have been a part of #HOH at the legendary ECW Arena! Just wow 🙂

The ECW Arena was on fire!!! Both myself and Alberto got goosebumps going out there. It's that feeling we got in the biz for!
