Latest On WWE’s Alberto Del Rio Release Announcement, Rumor On Backstage Altercation reported that WWE did not use Alberto Del Rio’s real name when announcing his release from the company this evening. It’s also interesting that they did not wish him the best in his future endeavors.

For what it’s worth, Rob Feinstein of RF Video wrote on his Facebook that Del Rio was involved in a backstage incident at the recent WWE TV tapings. RF claimed that Del Rio had words with an employee who works for WWE’s social media department and allegedly slapped him. This should be taken as strictly rumor for now. reported how Del Rio has expressed interest in leaving WWE and returning to Mexico once his deal expired this year.

    I heard he put the cross arm breaker on Vince because Del Rio wasn’t happy with the way the Spanish announce table has been treated over the years :/

    Michael Cole: Vintage IWC!

  • Sir William McCormick

    Really? Well, his release is no doubt going to help with the budget cuts.

  • Monkey D. Luffy

    I’m betting my college education that he gets signed by TNA by the end of this year, if not sooner.

    Any bets?

      Hope you like flipping burgers. He’ll go home to CMLL.

      EDIT: Also, TNA is nowhere near financially stable enough to take on talent like that. Unless TNA cuts him a deal he can work CMLL.

        Why would he go back to square one? I can’t see a future for him there, unless it’s just for his sheer wrestling addiction which he is passionate about.

        Then again he may have actually retired since he’s already in his late 30’s and had no plans of resigning.

    • codys moustache

      He’ll go to AAA

      • Monkey D. Luffy

        My dude is probably retired, i can understand why making a return to his Lucha Libre roots would make sense, but i don’t see him wrestling again unless it’s for a global promotion, that’s just my take.

  • thatpj hand he wasn’t going to re-sign on the other hand WORK

  • Monkey D. Luffy

    He was hands down one of the top 5 best wrestlers in the company regardless of how stale his character may have been.

    I don’t feel bad he was released, i feel he will come back strong.. in TNA, unless he decides to officially retire.

  • Monkey D. Luffy

    Del Rio never even got the, “We wish you well in your future endeavors” treatment, he must have seriously pissed off upper management ..or Cena.

  • Yusei Asakura

    Alberto Del Rio is a true hero now He’s probably saved quite a few jobs by getting released too bad it was after the time keeper was released

  • Necro

    Hell if this is a work I hope ADR can come back and actually be relevant and get a reaction.

  • Owen Currie

    hes going to mexico

  • Guest

    I would love to see him in TNA. They need all the help they can get, and Del Rio would be a fine acquisition. Also could get more eyes on them.

  • Marck-WWEDivas

    I know he will have success in the future because he was an amazing wreslter here in mexico beginning on CMLL, later on AAA, WWE and now probably on TNA.
