As we previously reported, Alberto Del Rio claims to have been stabbed which is why he was a no show for his scheduled appearance at an AAA event according to his statement on Instagram.
One fan on the Lucha Blog (username thecubsfan) makes quite an interesting point that some things still don’t quite add up in Del Rio’s story:
The longer version of this story explains a few things that were unclear before, but there are things in the story that don’t quite add up to me. It’s explained Alberto didn’t contact AAA until the next morning because he lost his phone, but the report both has Alberto never getting that far away from his car (and phone?), and Alberto’s mentioned as wanting to charter a plane to Monterrey to make the show (but still couldn’t contact AAA?) Alberto is able to fight off and disarm a knife wielding maniac with his superior fighting skills, which is super hero stuff right there, but then maniac somehow just gets back in his car and leaves without anyone stopping him. There’s no details about attack or the car that hit Alberto, and there’s no news stories about this outside of the wrestling media that I can find. I know local newspapers are not in great shape, but Alberto is a celebrity who just got stabbed, an article about it would sell a few papers.
Pro Wrestling Sheet’s Ryan Satin did some digging of his own into the matter, having spoke with San Antonio PD who state that they haven’t had any stabbing incidents all week:
.@enriquem I'm still working on it. Like I said, I'm not saying it didn't happen. If I thought nothing happened, it would be on my site.
