Finally, the question regarding Alberto Del Rio’s status with the WWE has been answered and now, things seems to be settled among himself and the company.
The WWE has indeed confirmed the release of Alberto Del Rio after both Del Rio and WWE had reached an agreement of the terms of his release. Here is the official statement issued by WWE regarding this release: “WWE and Jose Rodriguez (Alberto Del Rio) have mutually agreed upon the terms of his release as of today, September 9, 2016.”
It is obvious that this second run of Alberto Del Rio in the WWE was not worth it. Some would say that this run was a menace to himself and his fans. It is revealed that Del Rio made a very surprising return at the Hell in a cell match where he fought and defeated John Cena which made him the US champion. His first run with the company lasted for over 6 years while the second has not even reached a year because he returned to the company in October 2015.
More so, at the return of Del Rio, the WWE Universe expected lots from him but things fell apart after he and WWE Diva Paige went public with their relationship earlier this year. Report states that the WWE has never bought the idea of Del Rio dating Paige so they wanted the two of them to split. Triple H said that Del Rio will end up leading Paige astray.
Furthermore, it became that the plans of the WWE was fruitless, so, they have to draft the lovers into different brands during the brand extension just to make them leave each other but it seems that the plans of WWE didn’t work because Paige is not even ready to leave Del Rio at all. Now Del Rio is released, let’s watch and see what will come out of Paige career with the WWE.
My business relationship with @WWE has come to an end in good terms…thanks for the opportunities they gave me.
