Alberto El Patron (Del Rio) was recently interviewed on Busted Open Radio in which he discussed being judged in public and on social media following his break up with WWE Superstar Paige. Below are the highlights transcribed courtesy of WrestlingInc.
On Being Judged:
“Those are situations that are really difficult to handle, unfortunately,” said Del Rio. “I have to say it again, unfortunately these days you can’t do anything. We always talk about bullying, bullies, that is what social media is. It’s just people we gave a voice to who didn’t deserve to have a voice. You will never see someone like Mark Henry tweeting and giving crap to another athlete or another wrestler about their personal life. In my situation, to be honest, with me I don’t care.”
On Why He Stopped Going Public With Relationships:
“I stopped going out because Mark Henry was telling us in the beginning of this chat you always have stupid people approaching you and wanting to give you a hard time just because of who you are. I got tired of going to places and people wanting to pick fights with me or to prove something themselves or their drunk friends, so I decided to stop going out,” revealed Del Rio. When it comes to things like social media, the only time I go crazy is when my kids get affected like when they get someone stupid saying something ignorant to them about me because they are babies. Someone says something bad about their father. I have been saying this from the beginning: people are going to say whatever they want to say or believe whatever they want to believe. I say this to people: stick to the facts. The things that some loser said? No, stick to the facts, show me evidence, which is all I am going to say about it.”
