Nine years after being released from the company, a former WWE star wishes to rejoin it as LWO's ring announcer. In the most current WWE feud between himself and The Judgement Day, Rey Mysterio reorganised the Latino World Order. Dominik Mysterio was defeated by the 2023 Hall of Famer at WrestleMania 39, and Backlash in Puerto Rico marked the conclusion of LWO's rivalry with The Judgement Day. In a Street Fight that included guest appearances from Savio Vega, Carlito, and the LWO, Bad Bunny prevailed over Damian Priest.


Before his dismissal from the business in 2014, Ricardo Rodriguez worked for years as former WWE Superstar Alberto Del Rio's ring announcer. Recently, Ricardo used Twitter to respond to a supporter who said they would be thrilled to see him back in the business. He acknowledged that he would dearly like to rejoin WWE in the future and quipped that he might do so as LWO's ring announcer. "Would love to return to @WWE one day... Maybe the LWO need an announcer? Lol," he tweeted.

Ricardo Rodriguez explained his character in WWE

Recently, Ricardo Rodriguez admitted that Alberto Del Rio was always the focus of his character, which was just his inherent personality turned up a lot. The 37-year-old worked for the business for a while until being fired in 2014. After being freed, Ricardo went back to the indie wrestling world and served as the Spanish commentator for a single All Elite Wrestling tape. The "Three Legacies Wrestling Academy" just debuted in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

In an exclusive interview with Sportskeeda Wrestling, Ricardo Rodriguez acknowledged that the sole purpose of his persona was to enhance Alberto Del Rio's image. "Nobody told me what to do, what to say. Nobody told me how to act. The main focus was always Alberto. That was the focus. Alberto, Alberto, Alberto. I was kinda just there. I am a goofy person in real life anyway. That Ricardo thing is basically me, but just turned up. I'm goofy. I like to have fun," he revealed.
