The WWE had big plans for Alberto Del Rio when he debuted in the company in 2010. But for unknown reasons, the WWE backed out on those plans on several occasions.

When Del Rio suffered an injury this past December, it was another obstacle that hindered his career.  He returned in February 2012, but it seems that the WWE has no real plans laid out for the "Mexican Aristocrat."

According to Wrestlinginc.com, Del Rio did some media for the WWE in Puerto Rico this weekend, and he commented that he is under the impression that he will not be performing at WrestleMania 28.

The site also reports that Del Rio said he was supposed face Randy Orton and that it was planned for him to be on Team Laurinaitis.  He was told recently, though, that he is not appearing on the Team Laurinaitis vs. Team Teddy Match.

Del Rio may still appear at the biggest event in professional wrestling, but it is not known what role he will play.  The company gave him a massive push in 2011 and lined him up in a program with former World Heavyweight Champion, Edge.

That program landed a 2011 Royal Rumble win and a shot at the World Heavyweight Title at last year's WrestleMania.

If Del Rio in fact does not perform at WrestleMania, the WWE could have something planned for him after the pay-per-view.
