WWE Releases Alberto Del Rio, Del Rio Comments


It has been highly speculated that Alberto Del Rio, who is currently serving a 30-day wellness policy suspension, would not be returning to WWE following that suspension.  Today, WWE made it official by issuing the following simple statement on their website.

STAMFORD, Conn. — WWE and Jose Rodriguez (Alberto Del Rio) have mutually agreed upon the terms of his release as of today, September 9, 2016.

Del Rio took to Twitter and commented briefly.  He said that the relationship has ended on good terms, and he thanked them for the opportunities they gave him.  Del Rio is slated to hold a press conference in Mexico today, where he is expected to comment further on his plans for the future as well as his release.  His initial tweet regarding his release is shown  below.

Bill Says:  Will be interesting to see where he lands, and if his girlfriend Paige follows him.  We’ll have more on this once Del Rio holds his press conference.
