Alberto Del Rio Reveals Why He Left WWE, Did He Address His Suspension?, Talks His Future, More
Del Rio was going by his former ring name Alberto El Patron, and although he announced yesterday he would be addressing his WWE Wellness Policy violation and subsequent 30 day suspension, he never spoke about the situation.
Instead, Del Rio stated publicly that he finished up with WWE because he was not happy with his second run in the company, and that his passion for wrestling was beginning to wane. He added feels like he has accomplished all he can in WWE and it was time to move on.
As for his future in pro wrestling, Del Rio said he is clear to work anywhere outside the U.S., and he is working on getting cleared for U.S. appearances soon. He added he is not looking to sign anywhere, and he is looking ahead to retirement. He feels he will likely retire in two years.
Del Rio’s first post-WWE appearance has already been announced as he and his brother Memo will be facing Zack and Roy Knight, the brothers of WWE star Paige, for the WAW promotion in Norwich, England. WAW is the promotion owned by Paige’s parents, Ricky and Saraya Knight.
Paige, Del Rio’s real life girlfriend, was in attendance for today’s press conference, but not in an official capacity.
