Alberto Rodriguez, known in WWE as Alberto Del Rio, has threatened to expose three domestic violence arrests from a previous relationship.
Although he didn’t name her, Rodriguez certainly appeared to be referencing his relationship with Saraya Bevis, known in WWE as Paige, which is evidenced by the story of the $1 million confidentiality agreement he mentioned when discussing the topic. He also said “everybody knows who I am talking about”.
In November 2020, Bevis claimed that she had been abused in a previous relationship, but did not mention Rodriguez’s name. Rodriguez, despite not being mentioned, knew she was talking about him, and responded by denying the accusations and saying the abuse was the other way around.
Now, in a new interview with Hannibal TV, Rodriguez has claimed that Bevis was arrested three different times for domestic violence during the relationship, and the story they gave to the media was “bulls**t” so Bevis could keep her job with WWE.
“I had another situation with another person accusing me of something. What’s your evidence? And thank God now, and I said it in my interview with my great friend Hugo Savinovich, hey, we had a confidential agreement in the past for $1 million. That’s the only reason why I never did anything, never said anything, I never exposed you. I never told the truth about all your arrests for domestic violence when we were together, but please don’t mess with me again. Enough is enough. I have no intentions of… and everybody knows who I am talking about.
“No more, no more. Enough is enough. That confidential agreement is no longer there, you breached the contract so now I can tell the truth about who was and who wasn’t arrested three different times for domestic violence, and it wasn’t me. Seven police reports for domestic violence, and it wasn’t me. They talked, they barked, they were poking and trying to make me talk, and I think they wanted to make me talk to come and collect that million dollars because when we signed that confidential agreement, hey I was WWE Champion, I did good money-wise, and then the other person, after signing the contract I realized that she didn’t own a house, a car, or anything, and only had $60,000-$70,000 in her bank account. But the contract was already signed when I found out.
“I have no intention of affecting anyone. Please leave me alone, enough is enough. And you, all of you, all of that people, you should be thankful it’s because of me why she still has a job, because if I would’ve exposed her in the past… I’m not just talking, barking crap, I’ve got documents of what I’m saying, I have evidence, and if not, hey, come and sue me, come and sue me. But if you try to do something, I will put those three arrests for domestic violence out there, and I will tell the truth of what happened, what really happened. Not the BS stories that we told the media to protect her from losing her job because we did it because we were engaged, we were a couple, we did it together. We threw a bulls**t story to the media, to the fans, but that’s not a real story, and I have no intentions of entertaining the internet, and I don’t want to affect anyone’s life, but please stop messing with me.”
Rodriguez is scheduled to go on trial on August 2 for one charge of aggravated kidnapping and four charges of sexual assault after being arrested last year in an incident involving a different woman he was in a relationship with.
Rodriguez has recently expressed an interest in returning to WWE where he was a four-time World Champion as Alberto Del Rio.
