Former WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio has opened up about the sexual assault and kidnapping charges that were brought against him in 2020.

Del Rio (real name Jose Rodriguez Chucuan) was arrested on May 9, 2020, after being accused of assaulting and kidnapping his ex-fiancée. On October 9, 2020, he was indicted by a grand jury on one count of aggravated kidnapping and four counts of sexual assault. The charges were later dropped.

Speaking in an interview with Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Riju Dasgupta, Del Rio said his ex-fiancée created the story because she wanted revenge after he cheated on her.

“All that horrible nightmare from last year, it’s about to be over,” stated Del Rio. “Everything in my favor with zero, zero evidence against me, with my ex-fiancée even apologizing publicly, withdrawing charges, and speaking to the authorities and telling them, ‘I’m sorry, I f’d it up. I wanted revenge, I was p****d, I was angry, I hated that man, because that man cheated on me 10 days before our wedding in our house, in our bed, and I just wanted to make him suffer.’”
