Alberto Del Rio Possibly Leaving WWE Due To Creative Differences By Eric Lynch on July 29, 2016
It sounds like Alberto Del Rio may be disgruntled with his current role in WWE and looking to exit the company.
Friends of Del Rio say he’s not happy with how his character has been handled on WWE programming despite reportedly being paid well by the company. In the latest issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reports that Del Rio’s contract has an out clause that would allow him to leave the company in September.
The former World Heavyweight Champion didn’t join TNA last time he was a free agent, instead working with AAA, Lucha Underground, and WWC in Puerto Rico.
Del Rio returned to WWE last October after being released in August of 2014 for “unprofessional conduct” after he struck an employee who made a racist joke.
