Alberto Del Rio's departure from the WWE was one of the most controversial and explosive departures for some time.
Of course it doesn't quite grab the attention as much as CM Punk's equally acrimonious exit back in January, but with Alberto Del Rio there were big topics discussed in the wake of his departure.
Not a week goes by without a major issue raising its head in WWE, and just this past week, Alberto Del Rio got his revenge on the wrestling entertainment company.
We'll delve back into why Del Rio was fired and whether it was worth it, but first we should get to grips with the news that the Mexican wrestler recently beat WWE in court. That's right, Del Rio came out on top of Vince McMahon and the WWE in court.
Last month Del Rio was fired from WWE after he slapped an employee of the company. It is understood though that Del Rio was racially abused and that's why he responded to the employee, Cody Barbierri, with such force.
Not only did WWE fire Del Rio, they also inputted a non-compete clause into his release from the company, but this week Del Rio managed to get that clause thrown out in court, according to reports.
Del Rio speaks out
Spanish-language Web site SuperLuchas.net broke the news, and managed to get Del Rio to say his piece.
“It is unconstitutional that you cannot work. Thanks to lawyers and support of AAA, I can fight without any problems.” explained Del Rio, who is now scheduled to appear in his AAA debut on September 14 in Mexico.
But it is not only AAA that is interested in Del Rio's signature. According to reports, one of WWE's key rivals, TNA, have reached out to the Mexican wrestler. Only time will tell whether or not he chooses to get the ultimate revenge on WWE.
