8. Alberto Del Rio Suspended By WWE
WWE announced that former WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio has been suspended due to a Wellness Policy Violation. Below is what WWE posted:
STAMFORD, Conn. — 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.
It’s very well known that Del Rio did the so called prohormones (which is a way of cheating the tests and usually get away with) when he returned to the WWE in the fall of 2015, but it has not been revealed just how long after his comeback he was doing them, nor if he did anything else after that point in time, so right now your guess is as good as ours and please stay tuned for more information on that situation, keep checking WWFOldSchool.com and as soon as we receive an update, we will let you know.
Del Rio competed last night on SmackDown Live and lost to John Cena. We reported before that Del Rio has heat with Triple H and it’s expected that Del Rio will leave WWE in October.
