Backstage Latest On Alberto Del Rio’s WWE Departure, Mainstream Media Coverage

Triple H re-tweeting WWE’s message to angry Alberto Del Rio fans had many thinking that the whole release and backstage incident with a employee was part of a storyline. In case you missed it, here’s what they wrote:

“@VivaDelRio is responsible for his own actions. If you’re angry at anyone, be angry at Alberto. There’s no excuse for a pro athlete not to conduct themselves in a professional manner.” reports that people within WWE who would be in the know say that what was reported really went down and Del Rio is really gone from the company.

Del Rio has not tweeted since the release. It’s also worth noting that the incident was picked up by The Washington Post, among others.

    I’m still thinking that the one who tweeted that is the one who got slapped.

    the more I think about this, the more I recall HHH referring to this era/ as the “reality era”. som months ago. I think they (WWE) are tired of being referred to as the so-called “PG era”.

    all this *COULD* be a work. dare I even say the other guy as well…. maybe he just needed time off to heal from injuries. maybe it was a ploy to later increase buyers to the WWE network if one of its top stars were to return. not to mention the eventual return of DB as well.

    Del Rio gave an Interview in Mexico, “Dos Caras Jr estaba molesto por los continuos insultos y chistes de mal gusto hacia los mexicanos y puertoriqueños de parte de esta person”, wich means, that the Guy from Social Media was a insulting latino pepole and Alberto confronted him

    His departure is real. The reason is a work.
