The latest on Alberto Del Rio’s release from WWE “due to unprofessional conduct and an altercation with an employee” on Thursday is that it reportedly involved Del Rio and a member of the WWE.com staff at television tapings this week in Texas.

According to a report by Dave Meltzer, Del Rio reportedly slapped a WWE.com reporter. What actually caused the altercation to take place isn’t known at this time. The belief as of Thursday evening is that he will be required to honor a 90 day non-compete with WWE.
