Former WWE Champion Leaving the Company?

There is some internal speculation that Alberto Del Rio is unhappy and may be on his way out of the WWE this fall. Vince McMahon wanted to push him heading into the draft but it was reported that Triple H wanted to back off from a Del Rio push and that is what ended up happening. Del Rio’s contract with the WWE ends this coming October.
