Even More Backstage Alberto Del Rio News
When Alberto Del Rio received the phone call from Triple H informing him he was being released from the company, Triple H reportedly told Del Rio to “keep his nose clean,” and when the heat from the backstage incident died down, WWE would re-hire him in 6 months or so. Del Rio reportedly told HHH he was not interested in being re-hired, and did not want to return to WWE.
Additionally, top WWE stars like John Cena, Big Show and Randy Orton all told Del Rio they would push for him to be re-hired because most of the talent in the locker room sided with Del Rio following the backstage incident with Cody Barbierri. Again, however, Del Rio made it clear that he did not want to return to WWE.
