During an interview with Lucha Libre Online, former WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio (Alberto El Patron) talked about his relationship with former WWE Divas Champion Paige.
Their relationship began in May 2016 and they got engaged later that year in October. Their relationship came to an end in December 2017.
Below are the highlights from the interview:
On his relationship with Paige:
“Paige and I could have built an empire together, because of our talents, because of what was around us.
But unfortunately due to the situations, instead of taking advantage and growing as a couple, we did the opposite.
We dedicated ourselves to doing things that were not productive, neither for our careers nor for our lives.”
On signing a $1 million confidentiality agreement with Paige:
“For this reason and also for the love, for the beginning, for the 2 parties, to protect them, we did it and signed a confidentiality agreement for $1 million.
After signing it, I found out that Paige didn’t own a house, she didn’t have a car, she didn’t have more than $70,000 in the bank, and the one who really had to lose something was me.
Because, thank God, WWE, Impact, AAA, all those companies made me great (money), but that money belongs to my children. It is the future of my children, it is for them to become someone.
If the relationship ends, it hits me, my family hits me, and although everyone told me why I didn’t say anything, because that’s why, because I was tied to that contract, whoever I spoke to was going to come immediately to tail.”
