WWE: Del Rio labels Vince McMahon a true gentleman

Former WWE superstar Alberto Del Rio has spoken candidly for the first time about his relationship with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon following his official release from the wrestling company.

Del Rio was fired during the summer after he slapped a WWE employee in the face. It is alleged that he was racially abused leading up to the altercation, but nonetheless, WWE saw fit to get rid of the Mexican wrestler in what was an acrimonious exit to say the least.

Although Del Rio was fired in the summer, it has taken until this week for the Mexican wrestler and the WWE to agree on the terms of his release. And now that Del Rio has the green light to speak about his former employers, particularly Vince McMahon, you would probably expect the superstar wrestler to spill the beans on the torture of working with McMahon, like so many others have.

Surprising comments 

Rather than attack McMahon like so many previously fired WWE superstars have done, Del Rio took the much more gracious and surprising route of complimenting McMahon and remarking that their relationship has always been 'fantastic'.

"I have no problems or any bad comments about Vince McMahon," Del Rio revealed. "He's a gentleman, he always treated me well. Our relationship was always fantastic."

Too much politics 

These comments are surprising because of the way Del Rio has fired off a barrage of criticisms the way of the WWE since getting fired. But it seems rather feeling angry at Vince, it's other people in the organization that pissed off Del Rio during the later stages of his WWE career, with the Mexican wrestler claiming the fun has been sucked out of the company.

"It's all about politics. The fans complain about this and that but they don't realize it's not our choice. We're just following orders, we don't control our own destiny even though I spoke about destiny for years and years. They tell you what to to, what to say and how to wrestle, it wasn't fun anymore," Del Rio added.
