Alberto Del Rio faced charges of second-degree sexual assault and aggravated kidnapping. However, it seems those charges are no longer on record. Del Rio’s accuser, who is his ex-girlfriend, recently made an apology post for her ”mistakes” on Instagram. Del Rio’s brother responded to this by calling her a garbage person and a liar.
Alberto Del Rio was one of the top Superstars in WWE and he always had Ricardo Rodriguez as his special announcer. Mike Johnson of PW Insider reported that Rodriguez worked on the Spanish announce team for AEW’s Dynamite and Rampage taping in Boston. However, it was not said whether it will be a permanent position for him or if it was simply a one-time thing.
Alberto Del Rio recently spoke on UnSKripted, where he said that he deserves to be put into the WWE Hall Of Fame as he has contributed enough.
“Everybody knows that my dream is to one day be a part of the WWE Hall of Fame,” said Alberto Del Rio. “…After accomplishing everything, working and defeating all the big names, all my idols, that let me share the ring with them and gave me the opportunity to be part of their world, be there inside, and they gave me the privilege of being there with them.”
WWE have released Braun Strowman, Aleister Black, Lana, Ruby Riott, Santana Garrett, and Buddy Murphy. The reason cited was part of budget cuts, and Strowman was being paid $1.2 million per year according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The former WWE Universal Champion signed a new contract in October 2019, so the budget cut regarding Strowman is the WWE’s biggest saving financially from all of the talent cuts in the last year plus during the pandemic. Braun Strowman was fired by WWE for a very surprising reason as well.
