WWE just issued a followup statement regarding the release of Alberto Del Rio on their verified Twitter account. The statement is as follows:
@VivaDelRio is responsible for his own actions. If you’re angry at anyone, be angry at Alberto. There’s no excuse for a pro athlete not to conduct themselves in a professional manner.
Below are the Tweets in their original format:

The Tweets come less than 24 hours after the company announced that Alberto Del Rio had been released "due to unprofessional conduct and an altercation with an employee." We immediately followed up with details on his controversial past and how WWE did not follow their release protocol.
On Friday morning, we recapped Del Rio's mysterious promo on Main Event and reported the incident was with a WWE.com/social media employee at a recent television taping.
The most-recent Tweets are the latest step counter to WWE's release protocol, as the company is usually silent after announcing a worker's release. His profile has been moved to the Alumni section on dot com but there will only be more fans wondering if this could be spun into an angle following the latest social media activity.
