Alberto Del Rio is finished with WWE.
Del Rio, currently serving a thirty-day suspension for a violation of the company’s Wellness Policy, is said to have given notice two months ago, taking advantage of an ‘early out’ clause in his contract which allows him to end his employment after one year.
Del Rio was reportedly unhappy that he was not given a main event position as promised when he agreed to return last year. Sources state that it was Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque who put a stop to the promised push due to concerns over Del Rio’s party lifestyle, and the influence he was having on real-life partner Paige, who was also suspended last month.
Del Rio’s suspension ends on September 17, so expect an official announcement on his release around then.
