It’s been revealed that the trial date for former WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio has once again been postponed, this time to August.
It was originally set for this past January, then postponed to May 3, and this time it’s been pushed back to August 2 as per PWInsider.
Del Rio, real name José Alberto Rodriguez Chucuan, faces one charge of aggravated kidnapping and four charges of sexual assault.
An ex-girlfriend of Rodriguez issued an apology to his family through Instagram a few months ago, which his brother claimed was an admission of false accusations, but the case has continued regardless of that.
Rodriguez was arrested on May 9, 2020 after being reported to San Antonio authorities by the alleged victim.
He is alleged to have accused the victim of infidelity and then assaulted her when she didn’t admit to it. He allegedly slapped her across the head several times and forced her to wear a dress and dance for him.
He also allegedly told her not to cry because if she did he would take her son and “drop him in the middle of the road somewhere”.
Police said he “tied the woman’s hands with boxing straps, put a sock in her mouth and sexually assaulted her for several hours, using various objects”.
The victim reported that the attack started at around 10pm on May 3 and ended around 2:30 pm on May 4, meaning it would have lasted over 16 hours.
WWE’s Paige, who’s another ex-girlfriend of Rodriguez, has previously said she had been the subject of abuse in a previous relationship, although she didn’t actually mention Rodriguez by name. He then responded by saying “it was the other way around”, and did mention her name.
He is currently scheduled to for a match against Andrade El Idolo for Nacion Lucha Libre on July 31.
We’ll continue to provide updates on this as they become available.
