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.
