Even though he was getting pushed to a lot of early success in the past two years, there might be some trouble brewing between Del Rio and the WWE in regards to the way things have been going in recent months.
Here are the details from F4WOnline (via on the situation between the former two-time WWE Champion and the front office of the company in recent weeks. reports that Del Rio clashed with upper-level management that day and threatened to quit WWE. One company source says Del Rio was frustrated with his standing and contemplating a departure. A second source said the incident "wasn't that big a deal" and that both sides were wrangling over a contract matter. A third source believes the spat was a combination of both accounts.
