WWE Report: Alberto Del Rio Suffering From Spinal Injury
The injuries just will not let up in WWE with the casualty of today being Alberto Del Rio. The former WWE and the United States Champion is coping with a nagging lower back injury that’s keeping him from competing, based on PWInsider.
A report from the Wrestling Observer noted that Del Rio was hurt taking a suplex from Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble and that he’ll be re-evaluated on Monday in Birmingham.
Del Rio didn’t wrestle on this particular week’s edition of Monday Night Raw. Instead, he appeared in the corner of Rusev and Sheamus in their main event tag team match against Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose. Del Rio also did not appear on Tuesday’s Smackdown tapings; PWInsider is reporting that Del Rio wasn’t backstage during the tapings either.
The Mexican Aristocrat is among the best-billed performers for this weekend’s WWE live events in Tennessee, Chattanooga and Tupelo, Mississippi. It’ll be intriguing to see if Del Rio is capable of wrestling during these events. It should give us an indicator as to how serious his lower back injury is if he can not compete.
He’ll probably be joining King Barrett on the sidelines for the next week or two until he’s prepared to compete again, although his injury isn’t severe. However, with this news of Del Rio’s back injury, Rusev might be the only League of Nations member (for the time being) that is capable of wrestling!
Mark’s reaction: The League of Harms can’t catch a rest. They’ve got to be one among my least favorite factions in WWE history. I take that back. I can’t say that contemplating The Corre was once a matter. The League of Nations are simply more disappointing to me than anything else. It is unfortunate because I really like all the members involved, it’s simply a mix of poor booking and bad luck. I never really felt any chemistry between the four. I wish I really could locate it on YouTube, but I Will never forget this one Uncooked where Del Rio said something on the mic and looked for a fist bump to Rusev. Rusev went for a high five instead and it just made for such an awkward moment. I do not believe it was meant for comedy functions either, they simply were not on the same page. Perhaps these smaller injuries is fortune attempting to tell The League of Nations that it merely ain’t working out.
I’m expecting Del Rio’s harm is not that serious. He probably just needs some time. For all we know, this could be why he dropped the United States Championship at the Royal Rumble again to Kalisto. Maybe Lesnar’s suplex get the final touch on an issue that already needed to be looked at. I really could be completely off, nevertheless, you know.
Here’s to hoping Del Rio gets!
