Alberto Del Rio Issues Statement On Pulling Out of wXw Event
Posted By: Ben Kerin on Oct 14, 2015
Former WWE Superstar Alberto Del Rio (El Patron) has responded to wXw’s statement regarding him pulling out of an upcoming event. Del Rio pulled out of two European bookings this weekend at short notice over wXw refusing to upgrade him to business class, arguing that such treatment was subhuman.
As you know, I hardly reply to comments against me in Social Media but this time my fans are affected.
WxwGermany tried to hire me under a third party under totally different agreements than I usually do. Obviously, I did not approve and we agreed on the normal terms. Terms that are always the same. Why do they want to be treated differently? Over a year of doing [the] Independent circuit and all the promoters have agreed to [the] same terms (fees, hotel & transport, and business class).
I am deeply thankful to them.
WxwGermany take the physical challenge and please tell me/fans what promoter has flown me coach and not Business. Inquiring minds want to know.
Why is it after they have sold tickets and just a couple [of] days away from [the] event they want to cling to old agreements? How is my manager to blame? Threats of screenshots and emails. Nowadays this is easy to falsify. Let’s be professional.
Speaking of professionalism; they also did NOT supply us with a tangible itinerary or concrete information. Where was I going to stay, where and when was I to travel and match info??? More importantly where is my Working Visa papers? Were they ever prepared?
I love this sport but let’s not be fooled. Flying in a small seat for 16 hours is not comfortable. I will not be bullied by promoters into working conditions I did not agree. Not all promoters are the same. I speak against those that treat us wrestlers like subhumans. I will never bow my head to this type of treatment, but you already knew that.
Thank you to my true fans in Switzerland and Germany.
