Ex-WWE Wrestler Alberto Del Rio Indicted in Kidnapping, Assault Case


Former WWE wrestler Alberto Del Rio was formally indicted on charges of kidnapping and sexual assault on Friday, according to NBC 4 San Antonio

Del Rio was arrested in May after a woman said he assaulted her on multiple occasions. The most recent incident came on May 3, when Del Rio, whose real name is Jose A. Rodriguez Chucuan, threatened to take the woman's son and "drop him in the middle of the road somewhere," according to the arrest paperwork.

Del Rio was the first Mexican-born world champion in WWE history. He left WWE in 2014 before returning in 2015. In 2016, Del Rio signed with Impact Wrestling. 

If convicted, the 42-year-old wrestler would face a prison sentence of up to 20 years, per PWInsider's Mike Johnson.
