Jim Ross weighed in on the current situation between WWE and Alberto Del Rio.
The Ross Report host and former WWE broadcaster hopes for a “happy ending for all involved.” He also said that when a wrestler leaves a company, it is usually because of creative or cash.
“Wishing Alberto Del Rio the best of luck upon ADR leaving WWE for the second time by my count. Talented guy without question who has seemingly not found what he's looking for in a promotion and at some point one has consider reevaluating one's priorities and game plan. Perhaps I'm wrong but there seems to be an abnormal amount of controversy surrounding this talent who still has plenty to offer a pro wrestling company if the table is set correctly for all involved," Ross said.
