5 Things you did not know about Alberto Del Rio
Some facts about the former WWE superstar from beyond the ring.
Alberto Del Rio is one of modern wrestling’s most tragic stories, and biggest wasted opportunities. He was brought in with much pomp and fanfare, defeating John Cena upon his return at Hell in a Cell, to capture the U.S. Championship, only to be buried on television night after night. Many wrestling fans predicted his departure a long time ago, because of how he was being used on television.
His U.S. title run was a disappointment, his run in the League of Nations did not help things either and since then, he’s been at the bottom of the barrel. But the fact remains that Alberto Del Rio is one of modern wrestling’s most popular superstars and this piece is an attempt to get to know the man, beyond his accomplishments in WWE. Here are 5 things that you did not know about ‘The Pride of Mexico’- Alberto Del Rio. Read on, guys.
5: Before Paige, Alberto Del Rio was dating Charlotte
Charlotte was once married to Bram from TNA. But shortly following their divorce, Del Rio and Charlotte began seeing one another. It was a short-lived fling and Del Rio moved on to Paige. One speculates whether the Paige-Charlotte angle that happened in May stemmed from the fact that Vince McMahon likes to recreate real life angles on television.
Nothing much came from the angle, and there were cringeworthy moments such as using Charlotte’s brother Reid's death to get heat. In any case, it is firmly established that there's no bigger Ladies’ Man in the WWE than the Pride of Mexico, Alberto Del Rio.
