Alberto Del Rio And Paige Break-Up?

According to reports circulating the internet on Sunday, Alberto Del Rio apparently broke things off with WWE’s Paige over the weekend. The breakup reportedly happened on Saturday night in Orlando, according to Raj Giri at Wrestling Inc.

The two have been dating for right around one year, with a public engagement being made last fall.

According to one source, Del Rio (now wrestling under the name Alberto El Patron) basically said “enough is enough” and realized he had reached his limit in the relationship. Interestingly, the pair appeared to be having a good time in Orlando over the weekend. Paige had posted pictures on her Instagram account of the two vacationing at Universal Parks (as seen below).

Paige appeared to comment on the break-up Sunday via Twitter with the following tweet.

Is she denying the break-up or downplaying it? For what it’s worth, PWInsider posted a story denying that the couple has actually broken up.

Io Shirai Not Expected To Start With WWE Anytime Soon

In a recent post on her blog, Japanese wrestling star Io Shirai noted that she is currently suffering from a neck injury. This will apparently prevent her from starting up with WWE anytime soon. According to her post, she will be re-evaluated in July, and that will determine her start date here in the United States. The injury was reportedly found during a WWE medical test.

Here’s what Bryan said:

Bryan also tweeted this out immediately following the previous two tweets, indicating that it was indeed just a “tease”:

However, with recent rumours stating that Bryan has almost cleared all his tests and is good to wrestle by the end of next year, this tease holds a little relevance.

Rusev made his return to the WWE at a SmackDown live event last night. The Bulgarian Brute took part in a Triple-threat match against Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens.

Rusev had been out with an injury ever since the Fastlane pay-per-view. He was drafted to SmackDown Live as a part of the Superstar Shake-up.

Rusev returned donning the shorter hairstyle that he used before his injury. It is safe to assume that the former 2-time US Champion will return to WWE TV at this week’s SmackDown LIVE.

Here are clips and images of his return taken by the fans in attendance:

Eric Bischoff: Women’s Money In The Bank Re-Match Is A Bad Idea

0

After the controversial ending to the women’s Money in The Bank Ladder Match, Daniel Bryan announced on this week’s episode of SmackDown LIVE that there will be a rematch on next week’s episode of SmackDown LIVE. James Ellsworth will be banned from the ringside in the match.

Eric Bischoff expressed his displeasure over the decision on his podcast, “Bischoff on Wrestling”. Here’s what Bischoff said:

“I think it’s a bad move. It’s a mistake I’ve made in the past. Sometimes you learn from your mistakes. At least, sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t. When you build up to a big event on PPV and you build up the stakes and you build up the expectation and you basically deliver a screwed finish and then re-match it on free TV. It diminishes the long-term expectation of future big event matches on pay-per-view when that happens. I think it’s a really bad idea. By the way, I’ve done it and the results were always negative”
