WWE Twitter Account Tells Fans to Be Angry at Alberto Del Rio

– WWE posted the following Twitter update regarding their decision to fire Alberto Del Rio:

“@VivaDelRio is responsible for his own actions. If you’re angry at anyone, be angry at Alberto. There’s no excuse for a pro athlete not to conduct themselves in a professional manner.”

    well, I can tell u as someone who (in my younger days) used to work in a kitchen, we had almost exclusively latino dish washers. so, yea, I totally get why that would bother del rio.

    as far as favoritism… that’s at any job. however, u don’t fire someone over an incident like this. both parties are in the wrong. what u do is, call both men in, talk it out, hand out punishment/fines/suspensions; but u don’t just fire someone for that, unless the matter calls for the police, which it obviously didn’t.

    part of me believes that since ADR has expressed interest in retiring after his deal is up, & management still making budget cuts, they saw the writing on the wall & decided just to axe ADR.
    however, im of the opinion that ADR may have just been floating retirement rumors to get a better deal later (sort of like what punk did a few yrs ago).

    I think this is messed up all around. I wont be surprised to see ADR back w/ WWE; perhaps real soon. ADR can by all rights go to the media and bury the company. and believe me, whether what he says is true or not, it could really hurt the WWE brand which is already floundering somewhat.
    I wouldn’t be surprised to hear of ADR perhaps taking legal action. ADR could probably get reinstated by that alone. trust me, w/ the network doing marginal, they wouldn’t need an bad pub.

    What if the dirty plate was Del Rio’s to begin with and this man who told him to wash it was doing nothing wrong. I’d expect people to wash their own dirty plates so if this is the case, Del Rio is acting like a b*tch about the whole situation

    Great. six more f***ing months of Del Rio chants instead of Punk chants by IWC smarks who think they’re so special.

  • Matthew Farrell

    You weren’t there, you don’t know the details. Nobody does, aside from dirt sheet rumours. Who’s to say he’s not making it up to garner sympathy? He has acted like a bit of a douche in the past so I wouldn’t be surprised.

    While I do agree ADR should have been more responsible and talked to management instead of allegedly doing what he was said to have done. If what I read was true & it was a comment over cleaning the dish then how is that racist ?

    I’ve heard stereotypes about lawn care and landscaping in regards to people of latin decent but not dish washing and such. Also if it was just one comment like that as I said he should have went to management instead of what happened if it indeed true.

    As I commented on another post about Randall Boreton he can get away with calling someone names (regardless of whether she did things or not), be an idiot both publicly & professionally on numerous occasions yet get no consequences. How’s that work ? Oh wait he’s tight with management …

    So it’s a work then?

    Del Rio sucks and I hope he’s gone forever

    I find it weird that WWE had to tweet about the situation and used his fake name also. Idk if it’s a storyline or what but it’s weird how it’s all happening. Hopefully we hear Del Rio chants on RAW

    Of course there is blame on ADR’s side, but what about the antagonist, the person (who according to rumors) made a racist remark? Don’t they deserve a piece of the blame? Where’s their punishment?
    As a company, you can’t allow employees to disparage other employees, especially when it’s the talent; the people who are the face of the company.
    If I’m WWE, and this (.com) person is highly replaceable, I would do so. There is no room for hypocrisy.
