Alberto Del Rio, the former WWE star, appears to have gotten a really bad rap by the World Wrestling Entertainment. The former champ was fired for hitting a WWE Social Media employee. Most f the people in the organization felt that the former champ’s doing this was not right. But that is not the whole story. Del Rio hit the man because of a racist comment he made about Del Rio, who is a Mexican.
Because of his Hispanic Heritage, World Wrestling Entertainment loved having him in the company. He served their Hispanic audience quite well, and the company pushed him to the moon and then back till around last year. This made a lot of people wonder why the wrestling company would fire him regarding something where he was only defending him against a racist man.
The reason was actually that the Social Media man wanted to press charges against the company, but the officials talked him out of that. To settle the whole issue, they had to fire Del Rio and also make sure that the lawsuit was dropped. It was reported that Triple H told Del Rio to keep his nose clean and offer the impression that the company would rehire him.
This is the same thing that happened to Daniel Bryan few years ago. During the whole Nexus debut, Daniel went on the stage and beyond to sell the whole Nexus attack and choked Justin Roberts, the WWE Announcer, with his own tie. That time, WWE almost told him that they would like to have him back in a couple of months when things blow over. But he was not supposed to get into any type of trouble.
