The Washington Post picks up the story...
- The Washington Post picked up the story on Albert Del Rio's firing, which also features reactions from fans who posted on Twitter on the issue and came to Del Rio's defense.
- As previously reported, Alberto Del Rio was let go by the WWE this week for slapping an employee who does social media work for WWE. The name of employee who was slapped by Del Rio has now been leaked by Dave Meltzer and The Wrestling Observer.
The name of the employee is allegedly Cody Barbierri, who is listed as the Manager of Social Media Live Events for the WWE on Linkedin.com and Twitter. Multiple reports indicated that Barbierri was slapped by Del Rio in reaction to a racist comment that Barbierri made that was directed at Del Rio. While Alberto Del Rio's behavior was unacceptable, if the reports are accurate, Barbierri does not appear blameless in this situation.
