Alberto Del Rio WWE Status In Doubt — Is Relationship With Paige To Blame?

Alberto Del Rio and Paige

Is a relationship with Paige to blame for Alberto Del Rio’s overall unhappiness in WWE? The pair recently went public with their romance and, as Lana and Rusev proved, the WWE isn’t fond of personal life getting in the way of storylines.

On the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that Paige and Alberto Del Rio were split during the brand extension because “both got heat for taking their relationship public, specifically posting pictures on Instagram (seen above).

Del Rio’s return to the company has been less than monumental. He returned to the WWE back in October 2015 and immediately captured the US Heavyweight Championship. Since then, he’s been stuck in the mid-card after a less than memorable coalition with the League of Nations.

Del Rio has a stipulation in his contract that allows him to opt out in September. So where could Del Rio end up if decides to leave the WWE? In a recent interview while doing promotional work in India, Del Rio hinted at the possibility of signing with TNA. He explained that he chose WWE over TNA last time because

“At the end of the day you can love what you do, but you have to be rewarded. If somebody wants to have me in their organization, they have to pay me, and there is no other place like WWE, which is a major league of progress and growth. TNA does not have the wherewithal as WWE does.”

Del Rio will have to weigh his options.
