Today, Wednesday 17th August 2016, WWE has suspended Alberto Del Rio for 30 days, effective tomorrow (Thursday, August 18th , 2016) for his first violation of their Wellness Policy.

The news comes amidst rumours that both Del Rio and WWE officials have been unhappy with his second run in the company and is the second high-profile suspension for WWE following Roman Reigns’ wellness violation.

As of now the exact violation that has caused Del Rio’s suspension is unclear.

Del Rio is not booked for Summerslam, so the news will not have any immediate effect on the card for WWE’s special event this weekend in Brooklyn, NY.
