I think we can now all squash those rumors of former WWE Wrestler, Alberto Del Rio going to AEW…
Per Dirt Sheet Radio:
Former WWE and Impact Wrestling Champion Alberto Del Rio was indicted yesterday by a grand jury in San Antonio, Texas for aggravated kidnapping, PWInsider.com has confirmed.
Del Rio was arrested in May and charged with sexual assault, a second degree felony as well as aggravated kidnapping. Court records list the primary charge as aggravated kidnapping, so clarification is needed as to whether the sexual assault charge resulted in an indictment as well.
A trial date has not yet been set. Del Rio is slated to be officially arraigned today, according to court records. He had been out on $50,000 bond.
Del Rio, real name Jose Alberto Rodriguez Chucuan, 43, was arrested on 5/9 after a victim went to local authorities, stating that on Sunday 5/3 at 10 PM, Chucuan allegedly became angry with her and physically assaulted her after accusing her of infidelity. When the victim would not admit to the infidelity, Chucuan allegedly slapped her “across the head” several times. The victim also alleged that Chucuan “forced her to wear a dress and dance for him” and that when she refused and he told her not to start crying because if she did, “he would take her son and drop him in the middle of the road somewhere.”
The arrest affidavit stated that the woman alleged Chucuan had sexually assaulted her and that she had her injuries documented via photographs.
At the time, The FOX affiliate in San Antonio reported, “Police said Rodriguez Chucuan then tied the woman’s hands with boxing straps, put a sock in her mouth and sexually assaulted her for several hours, using various objects. According to investigators, he also punched her in the back during the assault, causing visible injuries. The victim told detectives she does not remember much after he placed his hand around her throat.”
TMZ later reported additional details that brought the accusations into a much more disturbing light, stating that the victim reported the attack started at around 10 PM on 5/3 and that it lasted over 16 hours, ending on 5/4 on 2:30 PM. The victim went to the police the same day with TMZ’s report noting that the responding officer saw bruises on her face, arms, legs and neck. The victim alleged that Chucuan attempted to burn her passport and smashed her laptop computer and cell phone. TMZ reported that the victim, “..also claims Del Rio attacked her, causing multiple injuries and left her, ‘feeling woozy and dizzy from the hits to her head.’ ” The victim told police she was afraid and intended to leave San Antonio as soon as possible.
It’s amazing to think that at one point this guy was a WWE champion and even got a decent push at Impact Wrestling and was going out with WWE bad girl, Paige. Now he’s being revealed to be an absolute monster. It’s just a crazy world we live in these days…
