In the world of professional wrestling not everyone gets along all the time as backstage disputes certainly do happen as fans have recently seen with CM Punk’s situation involving The Elite.
At WrestleMania 32 The League of Nations defeated The New Day and The New Day previously said that they were heated due to a backstage argument before the match. Alberto Del Rio recently spoke to Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Riju Dasgupta, and he confirmed that a big fight took place.
“There was a big fight backstage. On that one, I was involved but it was not me creating the altercation. The person creating the altercation was not against me. The other two and I, we had to put someone in his place before going out. This is one minute before we went out. We went out to the ring and one of us, I’m not gonna say who, had to tell this person, ‘Listen, you mother F, we’re done with you. You’re gonna go out and do this because you’re a this and you’re a that.’”
Alberto Del Rio also confirmed that things briefly got physical before everyone went out into the stadium to do what needed to be done.
“It’s funny that someone finally talked about it because it would have been pretty bad,” Del Rio added. “One of the members of The League of Nations grabbed this other member by the neck and put them against a wall. That’s all I can say about it! Until next time! Next time I will tell you all the details… maybe.”
“That’s why I love pro wrestling so much. Nobody knew, seriously. That happened, this member grabbing the other one by the neck, and then his music hit and it was time to go outside. All of us went out like a team, a real team, like everything was good. Nobody knew about it. We were being seen by hundreds of thousands in the stadium, millions around the world, and nobody had a clue.”
