Former WWE Superstar Alberto Del Rio has seen the charges brought against him in a sexual assault case dropped over the weekend.

Lucha Libre Online confirmed that the former World Heavyweight Champion had been exonerated of all charges, and Del Rio’s legal team also issued a statement on the situation.

‘We hereby want to inform you that as of today, December 10, 2021, the Honorable Judicial System of the state of Texas has officially dismissed Mr. Alberto Rodríguez, known in the wrestling industry and contact sports such as Alberto Del Río or Alberto El Patron” the statement began.

“In this way, Mr. Rodríguez is officially exonerated of ALL the charges against him. We want to thank the Texas court system, the laws of the United States, the family Rodríguez, Mr. Rodríguez’s legal team, his friends and Lucha Libre Online for always supporting him in this process.

“It was a long process, but in the end, the truth came out. There is nothing that makes you more excited than to meet again with the ring you fell in love with for the first time when I was just a kid.

“Because of this, we confirm that Señor Rodríguez will be restarting his career in the wrestling and contact sports industry. Thank you all for your attention” it was confirmed.
