While he did not compete in any major events during the WrestleMania weekend, Alberto Del Rio still found his way into the headlines by no-showing the Impact vs. Lucha Underground show he was supposed to main event.
The no-show of the troubled superstar quickly became a hot topic of discussion and shortly afterward Impact Officials made the decision to release the former World Champion.
During a latest interview with The Sporting News, Del Rio finally broke his silence on the matter and revealed the reason for his absence to be a family situation:
“I had a family situation that I needed to attend (to). As you know, my family, my kids are my priority. The situation was involving them and that’s why I decided to take care of business and take care of my family situation. And that’s all that happened. This only concerns my family: my parents, my sister, myself and my kids. And that’s the way it’s going to stay.”
Apart from this, Alberto also talked about getting released from Impact saying that it’s always difficult to go this way and repeated his comments about retiring from Pro Wrestling next year.
