    Slate Randall, or Shaun Ricker, was a standout of Championship Wrestling From Hollywood (formerly NWA Hollywood) that currently airs on MavTV. He was one of their top acts and was even managed by Percy Pringle (Paul Bearer) at one point.

    Ricker was also a contestant on The Rock's TNT reality show The Hero last year. For those reasons, Randall is certainly the surprise of these releases. Ricker has the look and the presence that WWE typically looks for as well.

    WWE announced the release of Alberto Del Rio due to unprofessional conduct and an altercation with an employee.

    Creative had nothing for ADR.

    But ADR had something for them, an ass kicking.

    I'm not too sure that ADR might actually enjoy retiring slightly earlier than planned.

    Via meltzer on the Observer board:

    Big Dave Meltzer wrote:He slapped someone at TV. I think a dot com guy.

    Trying to get more.

    Waiting for some confirmation on why, heard a few versions.

    AND THEN this nugget of gold


    TNA was trying to get his number 90 minutes ago. Next TNA champion is not a joke. Dead serious.

    Fuck the 90 day clause. How about 89 minutes?

    Alberto would be crazy to go to TNA at this point when he can make way more money in AAA or CMLL or even just doing random indies dates in the US and Mexico.

    This seems like a case where both the WWE and ADR were more or less done with their relationship and not uncomfortable making decisions that got them out of it early.

    PWInsider wrote:As noted, WWE released Alberto Del Rio on Thursday for what they called an incident with an employee.

    A third source has now reported that Del Rio allegedly slapped a WWE.com worker at this week's TV tapings. The story going around is that Del Rio said he was responding to something said that he felt was racist in nature.

    It was also said that WWE will not be commenting on the situation beyond the announcement that was made on their website yesterday.

    We've also noted how Del Rio has expressed interest in leaving WWE once his contract expired this year. Del Rio recently relocated to Texas, which gave some people in WWE the impression that he moved to be closer to Mexico once his WWE run was over.

    Details are still sketchy regarding Thursday's firing of Al Rodriguez (Alberto Del Rio) by WWE.

    The story going around is that he slapped a a Social Media manager, at this week's television, but there are a variety of different stories going around regarding what led to this.

    Based on sketchy stories and what wrestlers have been talking about, at catering, somebody asked the person to clean off his plate. The person joked something along the lines of how that's Del Rio's job. Del Rio found out and confronted him. As the story goes, he didn't apologize and then smiled at him, and Del Rio slapped him.

    The belief is he will have a 90 day non-compete, which is likely to apply to TNA and AAA, both of which have interest in him. AAA would certainly be interested in him for the company's U.S. expansion.

    If the Meltz story is to be believed, and if wasn't going to resign anyway, slapping that guy for that comment seems like a good way to go out.
