Alberto Del Rio Released By WWE

Breaking News

WWE superstar Alberto Del Rio -- a former heavyweight champion -- was released by WWE Friday ... less than one month after a wellness policy violation.

"My business relationship with @WWE has come to an end in good terms," Del Rio tweeted out.

"Thanks for the opportunities they gave me."

The WWE also issued a statement saying the two sides "mutually agreed on the terms of his release."

It's not Del Rio's first split with the company -- he was fired in 2014 for "unprofessional conduct" after an altercation with an employee. 

Del Rio and his real-life girlfriend, Paige, were each hit with a 30 day suspension last month for violating the WWE's talent wellness policy.

There are rumblings that Paige will leave WWE as well -- but so far, nothing's been confirmed.
