F4Wonline.com is reporting that the relationship between WWE and Alberto Del Rio is becoming heated.
Reportedly, Del Rio had a major dispute with a top WWE official and threatened to quit the company. One source says Del Rio is frustrated with his current standing in the company, while a second source claims the incident wasn't a big deal and the dispute was more about contractual terms. A third source believes the incident between Del Rio and management is a combination of the first two reports.
Del Rio is viewed by WWE as having leverage. He has no personal issues with income and could easily return to Mexico as a former WWE Superstar. In the report, one WWE employee questions how legitimate Del Rio's concussion really was. Del Rio was apparently "too injured" to work his match against Sheamus Sunday at the No Way Out pay-per-view but was healthy enough to perform on Monday Night RAW. The employee thinks the concussion was a cover up because of the issues going on between Del Rio and officials. The feeling is WWE would rather claim he has a concussion to get him out of a high profile title match, and not risk Del Rio going into business for himself.
