Backstage Rumor: Alberto Del Rio Fired For Slapping A WWE Employee?

Posted by Matt Boone August 8, 2014 10 Comments

As we noted earlier this evening, Alberto Del Rio has been released from WWE for what the company described as “unprofessional conduct,” as well as an “altercation with an employee.”

According to RF Video’s Rob Feinstein, Del Rio was involved in a backstage incident at a recent WWE television taping. Feinstein claimed that Del Rio “had words” with a WWE employee who works for the company’s social media department and allegedly slapped him.

It should be noted that we have been unable to cofirm this rumor, so it should be taken as exactly that until further notice. We will continue to update you as more information surfaces regarding Del Rio’s WWE release.

      Thank fuck we no longer have to hear JBL scream “LOOK MAGGLE, ITS MEXICO’S GREATEST EXPORT!” Never liked him, I got the impression his heel character was pretty much exactly what he’s like in real life.

        You’re the one who’d be screaming ignorant racist b.s. comments like, what you’re wrongfully accusing JBL of doing. How about the fact that fans of Randy Orton do get mad with you at times because they feel like you’re just being antagonistic because you feel entitled to always get your damn way….***eyeroll***…….as it that’s ever gonna change.
        Alberto Del Rio is a good person and he’s respectful. Which isn’t always easy to do in WWE when you’re dealing with IWC smarks. What’d you want the guy to do for chrissakes, put up with the guy hassling him and being disrespectful just because he felt entitled to be working in WWE even though the guy who Alberto Del Rio slapped should have also been fired and made to apologize to Alberto Del Rio and Alberto Del Rio could then apologize to the WWE employee he slapped. Then they could agree to no longer say or do things that are immature and foolish.

      P.P. Johnny has never been an ADR fan, except for when he first came to the WWE & had a feud with the “little Chihuahua” Rey Mysterio, that was great.

        Because the world doesn’t only need to have favorable opinions. It is ok to voice negative feelings. I know in the PC, liberal, everyone gets a pat on the back and a trophy world we live in it is rare, but deal with it.

          Settle down batista. Sorry your guy got stomped the last 2 elections but politics doesnt need to brought into everything. Deal with the fact not everyone is going to have the same views as you. Adr was decent but it’s no big loss.

          WWE does need to have more favorable, fair opinions, outcomes and enjoyable, things happening.
