Former WWE Champion and current IMPACT Wrestling star Alberto Del Rio recently joined Keeping It 100 with Konnan, and discussed why he and WWE star Paige ended their relationship. Here’s what he had to say:
Why they ended their relationship: “We decided to end our relationship because she’s in Orlando, I’m in San Antonio, and now she’s back on the road and the schedule over there is nonstop, Del Rio said. “And my schedule is nonstop. We were not seeing each other. And because she was training and getting ready to go back, they were not letting her come to San Antonio. I couldn’t go to Orlando because I have three little kids.
“I was coming home for two or three days and had to choose between going to Orlando or seeing my kids. Of course, I decided to stay with my kids. We both agreed not to say absolutely anything because we got tired of the media, people, everyone, having an opinion about us. Including family.”
The rumored physical altercation between the two in Orlando: “That crap in Orlando, which is completely fake because nothing happened,” Del Rio said. “I never hurt her, she never hurt me. It was just internet BS and people believing it. I didn’t say anything because, number one, I was already suspended. The company and their zero-tolerance thing had me thinking they were going to fire hire.
“And as you know, unfortunately for female wrestlers, it’s impossible to exist or nearly impossible to exist outside of WWE. We had an amazing relationship. We decided to do this because it was the best for our careers and for my kids. She wants the best for me. I want the best for her. I know she’s going to be the most successful Diva in history.”
