As previously reported, former WWE Superstar Alberto Del Rio no-showed a AAA event in Mexico over the weekend. While the reason for Del Rio's absence was unclear, recent evidence of knife wounds have surfaced via the wrestler's Instagram account:
The explanation, which was also released via Social Media would read as follows:
"Mr. Rodriguez (“Alberto El Patron”) shortly after eating a meal before his flight was assaulted by a criminal with a knife outside the restaurant. Mr. Rodriguez suffered multiple lacerations on his arm and other parts of his body defending against the criminal as Police were called by witnesses. Mr. Rodriguez received medical attention and went back to the Police Department and was unable to make his flight. Mr. Rodriguez has spoken with the ownership of Lucha Libre AAA World Wide and given them documentation of the incident. Mr. Rodriguez greatly regrets not being there yesterday for his fans in Mexico and promises to everyone he will make this up as soon as possible. Despite the graphic lacerations Mr. Rodriguez will not miss any of his shows for the remainder of the year and is ready to compete this weekend in the UK."
Alberto Del Rio is the second wrestler to find himself on the receiving end of a knife over the past week. Strange times .
