To say that Alberto Del Rio's return at Hell in a Cell last night was a surprise is arguably one of the understatements of the year.
From John Cena to every member of the WWE Universe, the shock was obvious and wide reaching upon Del Rio's return.
Good news for some, bad for others
While the fans loved to see Mexico's greatest export return to the company that he left in controversial circumstances, there were some who were surely unhappy.

For those who may not know, Del Rio has been competing in AAA and is currently the mega champion in the promotion.
This was one of the biggest reasons for the high level of shock when Del Rio appeared in the Staples Center.
However in the aftermath of his return, some were focusing on the implications it will have on his career in the indie promotions.
More specifically AAA and how aware they were that Del Rio would be returning to the promotion where he arguably made his name.
Well it was reported today that AAA found out approximately 30 minutes before Del Rio walked out at Hell in a Cell that their champion would be making his return.
Giving the company who arguably took him out of the wilderness just half an hour to come to terms with the fact that he had returned to the WWE could be seen as quite harsh.
One positive for AAA however is that Del Rio's deal with the WWE means that he will still be able to compete in any indie shows he has been advertised for.
A fresh start?
Del Rio left WWE following a backstage altercation with an employee and many questioned if he would ever return.
The man who had previously headlined WrestleManias and held countless titles in the WWE has now returned and everyone is curious to see where he start his new WWE journey.
Seemingly aligning himself with Zeb Colter and already making a title winning return shows a lot of ambition from both Del Rio and the WWE.
