Alberto Del Rio was released by WWE on Thursday. Del Rio apparently slapped either a WWE.com employee or someone that works in the social media department. The WWE Twitter account posted the following this afternoon regarding Del Rio’s release, which was re-tweeted by Triple H:

“@VivaDelRio is responsible for his own actions. If you’re angry at anyone, be angry at Alberto. There’s no excuse for a pro athlete not to conduct themselves in a professional manner.”
