Alberto Del Rio is probably waiting for everything he has to do with WWE to finally come to an end entirely and, while he is, he has been airing his very adamant views on the company.

The former WWE Superstar who was fired by the industry earlier this year is currently working as part of AAA under the character of El Patron Alberto.

It is no secret that the Mexican and WWE ended their relationship on what wasn't exactly the best of terms, and Del Rio has not held back when it's come to sharing his thoughts on the industry.

UK appearances 

More recently he has been carrying out several media appearances in the UK, and the insight he has given to what life is like working as part of WWE is very interesting.

During an interview with Fighting Spirit Magazine, the 37-year-old explained what the atmosphere can be like working with WWE. He explained that racist comments, especially those aimed at black or Latino employees, were not uncommon.

If this information wasn't interesting enough to a WWE fan, Del Rio then went on to say how professional wrestlers like himself would only speak up when those comments were made by lower-level employees but not when they were made by those higher up than them in the company.

This thought process though, was to prove vital for Del Rio as it was a confrontation with Cody Barbierri, a social media manager, which led to the Superstar's exit from WWE.

It is said that the original arrangement WWE had with Del Rio was that he would be brought back a few months after the incident, but in retaliation said that if he wasn't rehired by the end of the phone call regarding the situation, he would not return.

In addition, the former WWE Superstar also reiterated that prior to the incident, he had made the decision not to re-sign with WWE once his contract had come to to an end.

Doesn't need WWE 

Del Rio also spoke to Patrick Lennon of Wrestletalk TV about the project Lucha Underground which is run by the Mexican El Rey Network.

He explained his delight at joining the company next year and made it clear he had moved on from WWE:

"I feel bad for all those guys needing that company. I don't need them, they don't need me...they're going to continue doing what they do, and I'm going to continue doing what I'm doing."

Though what has happened between Alberto Del Rio and the WWE is a rare occurrence, the fall out which has come about following it has given WWE followers a real indication of what can go on backstage within the industry.

What has also been made apparent is that there continue to be many other options related to professional wrestling outside of WWE for both the Superstars and their fans should they fall out of love with the industry.
