Alberto Del Rio might be on his way back to World Wrestling Entertainment.

The Mexican wrestling star appeared on “Nos Cayó La Noche” and discussed a number of topics including a potential WWE return. While the two sides ended on less than stellar terms, Del Rio says the two sides have talked and that the bridge is no longer damaged. As such, he sees a return as an inevitability.

“We have been in communication,” Del Rio admitted (via WrestlingNews). “We have rebuilt the bridge. On their part, they were wrong on some decisions and I also did some things wrong on my part. I am hoping that we can reach an agreement sometime this year or by the middle of this year I’ll be back there.”

Del Rio currently works with mixed martial arts promotion Combate Americas, where he lost a fight to Tito Ortiz late last year.
