Alberto Del Rio has publicly apologised to Triple H for a number of critical comments he previously made about WWE’s Chief Content Officer.
After an impressive career in Mexico with AAA and CMLL, Alberto Del Rio signed with WWE in 2009, making his main roster debut a year later on SmackDown against Rey Mysterio. Across two spells with the company, Del Rio became a four-time World Champion and two-time United States Champion.
However, both of his WWE runs ended under a cloud, with legal problems and out-of-the-ring controversy negatively affecting his career.
However, speaking during an appearance on Sportskeeda’s WrestleBinge show, Del Rio explained that he’s apologised to Triple H, admitting that he crossed the line previously.
“I have done it publicly. There’s some irrational people saying, ‘Oh, you do it because you need a job.’ No, I have always had a job, a different kind of job, not in the wrestling business until now that Triple A, thank you Triple A for giving me the opportunity, but I have always had a job. I just did it (apologized) because I was wrong and I should have never crossed the line With Triple H.
There was a reason why he was not using me, but back then I was stupid and I thought it was just because he didn’t like me and not because at the time they needed to push new stars and they need to give the opportunity to other wrestlers and Mexico was not the market that it used to be, and that’s why. I was still being the good, great wrestler, the good performer, and they were always paying me credit for it. They were always giving me the credit I deserve.
It was just me not knowing that part about the business until I became a promoter. Once I became a promoter, I understood. Right away I understood why they weren’t using me the way that they were using me at first, and I apologized.”
