WWE have announced that Alberto Del Rio has been released from his contract.
Del Rio rejoined WWE last year, and was reported to have a clause in his contract that allowed an ‘early out’ should both parties agree. With Del Rio currently serving a 30-day suspension for a Wellness Policy violation, and reported backstage issues, it is no major surprise that this announcement has come.
Del Rio has taken to Twitter to comment on the announcement;
My business relationship with @WWE has come to an end in good terms…thanks for the opportunities they gave me.
Termine mi relación con WWE
