Alberto Del Rio recently returned to wrestling after going on hiatus since assault and kidnapping allegations were made against him by an ex-girlfriend. It was even claimed he threatened to leave her young son stranded in the street, which shocked and appalled everyone. However, in an interview with Lucha Libre Online, he has revealed that she officially dropped the charges against him. Additionally, he stated her son was not even at the house when the scandal occurred.
Del Rio also spoke about another former girlfriend, Paige, who he began dating in 2016 but would separate with in 2017. The pair had a tumultuous relationship, and following the accusations mentioned above, she claimed that Del Rio kept her confined for hours during their relationship. Del Rio has stated that due to a confidentiality agreement the pair signed that he would take legal action against her if she spoke out against him again.
Del Rio is obviously trying to repair his reputation and rebuild his career due to the court of public opinion already having found him guilty despite the fact he will likely face no legal consequences. In July, he is set to face Andrade in one of his first matches since departing WWE himself, which has already caused controversy online. Therefore it will be interesting to see if any major promotions give him further opportunities due to the potential backlash.
