Alberto Del Rio was reportedly stabbed outside of a restaurant in San Antonio, Texas Sunday.
According to MLW Radio, Del Rio was involved in a minor car accident when he and the other driver both exited their vehicles before engaging in a verbal confrontation. The driver of the other vehicle then allegedly pulled out a knife and attacked the former WWE Superstar.
The suspect managed to escape in his vehicle, though witnesses managed to get the alleged assailant’s license plate number.
Del Rio was taken to a nearby hospital, but is said to be OK after only receiving lacerations on his arms and scalp.
Del Rio’s team released a statement:
“Mr. Rodriguez shortly after eating a meal before his flight was assaulted by a criminal with a knife outside the restaurant. Mr. Rodriguez suffered multiple lacerations on his arm and other parts of his body defending against the criminal as police were called by witnesses. Mr. Rodriguez received medical attention and went back to the police department and was unable to make his flight. Mr. Rodriguez has spoken with the ownership of Lucha Libre AAA WorldWide and given them documentation of the incident. Mr. Rodriguez greatly regrets not being there yesterday for his fans in Mexico and promises to everyone he will make this up as soon as possible. Despite the graphic lacerations Mr. Rodriguez will not miss any of his shows for the remainder of the year and is ready to compete this weekend in the UK.”
The popular Mexican wrestler later posted an image of the wounds (WARNING: Images are graphic).
