News on Why Alberto Del Rio Missed WWE No Way Out But Wrestled on RAW

– Regarding Alberto Del Rio being pulled from No Way Out due to a concussion but wrestling Santino Marella the next night on this week’s RAW, it was explained by a source that WWE is just very strict on the issue of concussions.

Del Rio was not cleared to wrestle by the June 11th go-home RAW and there was no probability on June 11th that he would be cleared for No Way Out so they went with the back-up plan of Dolph Ziggler getting the shot against Sheamus. Del Rio ended up getting cleared but by that time they already had changed direction.

    That would explain why he looked very pissed throughout his match against Santino. He never smiled at all.

    Why even use him on Raw just to squash Santino… AGAIN?

    it’s pathetic that dolph needs to wait for someone to get injured so that he can have a shot at the belt.

    @CC You have a good point.

    Last concussion I had was at the end of March. I had physical symptoms for about a week (feeling sick, head ache, blurred vision etc). However that calmed down quickly and I was ok to start playing my sports again.

    However I was suffering on and off Headaches untill early May. It can all depend.

    how long do you think concussions last? some only last a few days. hell, last concussion I had only got signed off for a week, so yeah, believe all the conspiracies you want, but its quite normal.

    Oh so Del Rio had a One Week Concussion? He randomly returned the Night After a PPV? He wasn’t Pissed off or he didn’t try to quit? Well ok WWE I’ll buy it -_-
