Washington Post picks up Alberto Del Rio’s WWE release

Marissa Payne of The Washington Post is featuring an article on the WWE release of Alberto Del Rio this week over an altercation with a WWE employee. The article mentions the official statements from WWE and references a report by Dave Meltzer over what allegedely took place backstage involving Del Rio and a WWE.com web producer.

“Whether the rumor is true or not, the WWE does have a point. Pro wrestlers are only required to look like they’re fighting, not actually fight — especially if it’s behind the scenes. At the same time, if the rumors are true and racism was involved in the altercation, WWE fans have made it clear that the slapping recipient should also be fired. While violence is not okay in the workplace, neither is racism.”
