Referring to Triple H, he said that he had misjudged him. He talked about accepting his mistakes and said that he had called him to apologize so that no hard feelings remained between them.
"And being the man I am and of course I called him and I apologized for that and we're good."
Del Rio went on to talk about retiring from professional wrestling. He felt that his savings were good, and he could retire from wrestling and move onto the entertainment business with projects like Combate Americas in MMA and telenovelas.
He revealed that he wanted to retire in 2019 after a farewell tour and that he did not want to sign a contract with any company so that he could spend more of his time with his children.
He went on to talk about Andrade 'Cien' Almas and revealed that although he did not watch wrestling regularly, he knew Andrade was doing well. He praised him and called him 'fantastic', 'good looking' and 'hungry'. He ended by saying that he hoped Andrade and other Latin wrestlers continue to do well in the company.
