It’s a well-known fact that Alberto Del Rio, now better known by the name Alberto El Patron was unexpectedly released by WWE back in 2014 due to unprofessional conduct.
However, while there are stories about Del Rio slapping a WWE Employee which led to his firing, not much is known about the whole incident or why it took place.
During his recent appearance on Keeping It 100 With Konnan, the former WWE Star finally revealed some details on the incident including the comment from the employee which led to it.
According to the former WWE Champion at first after it happened, he was told that everything was going to be fine and that he needed to control his temper:
“WWE actually said that everything was going to be fine. They said that they know and understand that he crossed the line, but they did tell me that I know that I needed to control my temper. My response was that it is just not easy to do that. It is easier said than done, especially when you have a guy who isn’t bringing any money in by taking any bumps, or sweating and bleeding for this company, he’s just a Social Media guy and comes to disrespect me and my family; disrespect my culture at the place where I was born,”
Continuing on the topic, the former Impact Champion also revealed the controversial comment which started the whole thing and eventually led to his release:
“I’m not saying that I am the toughest guy or anything like that, but everyone knows that I can go, and it was a known fact within the company that I am a respectful person, and that I respect everyone. I just don’t know why this guy thought he can make such a stupid comment where he said that this is why we have Mexicans to clean the plates, and I thought, what? Everyone knows that when I talked to the important people in the company they told me that everything was going to be fine, just go and shake hands.”
