Well, that didn’t take long.
The WWE and Alberto del Rio mutually parted ways today. The WWE put the following 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.
Things pretty much went south for Alberto del Rio after his return in 2015. He won the United States Title from John Cena and that was his return highlight. Del Rio was recently suspended for 30 days for violating the WWE Wellness Policy. There were rumors that Del Rio and current girlfriend Paige were told to split up by WWE executives. Those rumors have not been confirmed by anyone. Paige is also currently under suspension for violating the Wellness Policy.
Del Rio held a press conference earlier. He was very greatful to the WWE and Vince McMahon. He talked about being a free agent and not being limited to one company. He also talked about wanting to limit the number of dates that he works.
