Sadly, it’s not been Perro’s year

Last October, Alberto Del Rio returned after a long hiatus to defeat the face that runs the place, John Cena in a US Open Challenge and became the United States Champion. But since Hell in A Cell 2015, things have just not worked out for this man.

One year later, we look at just how bad things have gotten for Alberto Del Rio since his return to WWE. Jose Alberto Rodriguez, otherwise known as Alberto El Patron or Alberto Del Rio, has had quite a bad year and these 5 points will indicate just why it has been so, in 2016. 

#5- Assault and stabbing

Obviously the criminal forgot that blading is banned in professional wrestling

Alberto Del Rio’s terrible year culminated in him missing an AAA pay-per-view entitled Heroes Immortales. And while AAA was unhappy with the no-show, they’d soon realize that Alberto Del Rio didn’t show up because of a tragic incident. This was because, as Del Rio was about to grab a bite before he caught his flight, he was reportedly attacked and stabbed outside the restaurant.

Del Rio released some graphic photos of his injuries on Instagram and we wish him a very speedy recovery. But like we’ve mentioned before, this wasn't the first instance of Del Rio having a bad year. Oh no, not by a long shot! This was a tragic incident to end a truly terrible year indeed.
