It's official: Alberto Del Rio has been released by the WWE. No, this isn't a big surprise at this point given the news over the last few days about him giving his notice, but it is now official. He will be holding a press conference in Mexico City later today, but he has already released this statement on Twitter, along with the WWE:
My business relationship with @WWE has come to an end in good terms...thanks for the opportunities they gave me.— Alberto El Patron (@PrideOfMexico) September 9, 2016
Termine mi relación con WWE
As far as his girlfriend Paige is concerned: we told you yesterday about the rumors that she had hired lawyers and was looking to possibly get out of her WWE contract, but the news now is that she has already quit.
WWE occasional insider, Front Row Brian posted these tweets last night:
Of course, everyone wants to know how much of all this has to do with their relationship. But so far neither of them have commented on that one way or the other.
