– As noted, WWE released Alberto Del Rio on Thursday for what they called an incident with an employee.
A third source has now reported that Del Rio allegedly slapped a WWE.com worker at this week’s TV tapings. The story going around is that Del Rio said he was responding to something said that he felt was racist in nature.
It was also said that WWE will not be commenting on the situation beyond the announcement that was made on their website yesterday.
We’ve also noted how Del Rio has expressed interest in leaving WWE once his contract expired this year. Del Rio recently relocated to Texas, which gave some people in WWE the impression that he moved to be closer to Mexico once his WWE run was over.
