The relationship between Alberto Del Rio and Paige came completely out of the blue taking the wrestling world by storm and after they were handed suspensions by the WWE for violating their “Wellness Policy” earlier this August, the fans were speechless. Recently, TMZ Sports caught up with Alberto Del Rio and Paige while they were in New York City.
Del Rio spoke about being excited for his new role as the president of Combate Americas promotion. Del Rio also talked about continuing to work in the independent circuit and expressed a desire to work in the TNA if they pay him.
Del Rio had spoken about working with TNA during an interview with ESPN where he said, “I have other friends like Damien and Cody Rhodes. I'm just looking forward to doing an appearance with them pretty soon."
When asked about the stabbing incident which happened at a restaurant San Antonio, Del Rio says that he was at the wrong place at the wrong time and a guy dissed his girl.
