alberto del rioAccording to F4WOnline.com, recently released WWE star Alberto Del Rio did media in Mexico today and noted he cannot wrestle in the United States for one year.

Del Rio also confirmed a backstage incident did in fact take place between him and another WWE employee, however he did not go into detail.

Del Rio might have been found in breach of his WWE contract, which is why he cannot wrestle in the States for one year. When talents are found to be in breach of their contracts, they are no longer paid additional revenue from the time the breach occurred, and they are unable to wrestle or compete in MMA for one year.

Paglino: The report did not clarify whether Alberto Del Rio was in breach of his WWE contract because of the backstage incident, or because of his TripleMania appearance on Sunday, but the former is the likely case.

Del Rio’s non-compete clause with WWWE reportedly only pertains to him wrestling in the United States, making his appearance for AAA this weekend legal.
