Alberto Del Rio suspended

WWE has suspended Alberto Del Rio (real name Jose Rodriguez) for 30 days effective August 18, 2016. This is Del Rio’s first violation of the company’s talent wellness policy.

This announcement comes just a day after Del Rio headlined last night’s 8/16 WWE Smackdown Live on the USA Network against John Cena.

Del Rio returned to WWE last October after parting ways with the company in August of 2014 following a backstage incident with a former employee.

You can check out WWE’s full statement below.

“WWE has suspended Jose Rodriguez (Alberto Del Rio) for 30 days effective tomorrow, Thursday, Aug. 18, for his first violation of the company’s talent wellness policy.”


  1. Didn’t this guy learn anything from Roman Reigns? What I’m trying to say is don’t violate the wellness policy.

  2. WWE just announced 5 min ago that Paige is suspended for 30 days as well for Wellness Policy as well. And she is dating Alberto. I’m wondering if the two may have partied a little too hard for her birthday yesterday and perhaps its something that was picked up through social media (ie video of them smoking pot or something like that)

  3. Unless you’re an overpaid, part time @sshole like Roid Lesnar who spits on the company to work for someone else. In which case, violate away.
