WWE has officially announced the release of Alberto Del Rio on WWE.com. They released the following statement today in an article.
WWE and Jose Rodriguez (Alberto Del Rio) have mutually agreed upon the terms of his release as of today, September 9, 2016.
This is something we've been reporting for weeks was going to happen sooner rather than later. Rumors are swirling about the status of Paige in the WWE right now. No announcement has been made about Paige, so those who said Paige would walk when Del Rio walked are thus far incorrect, but the day is still young. We can not confirm anything as of this writing about Paige's status. It's also interesting to note that WWE did not wish Alberto "well in his future endeavors." Some might think this is because he technically didn't get fired, but if I had to guess it was one last passive aggressive jab at Del Rio on his way out.
