Former WWE Champion indicted on kidnapping and sexual assault charges

Former WWE Champion indicted on kidnapping and sexual assault charges
Jose A. Rodriguez Chucuan aka Alberto Del Rio

Back in May of this year, 43-year-old Jose A. Rodriguez Chucuan was arrested in Bexar County, Texas for allegedly kidnapping and sexually assaulting a woman in his home. Rodriguez Chucuan is better known as former World Wrestling Entertainment champion Alberto Del Rio. He also wrestled for Impact Wrestling and other independent promotions as Alberto El Patron. For the sake of this post, I’ll be referring to him as Alberto Del Rio as that is how he’s most commonly known.

Anyway, back in May, police were called to Del Rio’s home in the San Antonio area. According to earlier reports, Del Rio accused a woman at his home of being unfaithful to him and is said to have slapped her. He is also said to have made the victim put on a dress and dance for him and that if she didn’t stop crying he would take her son and “drop him off in the middle of the road somewhere.”

Del Rio is also believed to have sexually assaulted the woman with various objects while she was bound and gagged.

He was released from jail after posting $50,000 bail.

Earlier this week, Del Rio was indicted by a Bexar County grand jury on one count of aggravated kidnapping and four counts of sexual assault. On the kidnapping charge alone, he is facing anywhere from five to 99 years in prison. The sexual assault charges carry a minimum sentence of two years each.

To be honest, I’m surprised that Del Rio hasn’t fled the country yet. It’s not just because he comes from a famous Mexican wrestling family, but he has a history of burning bridges in the wrestling business, and acting like nothing is his fault.

Then again, he may just be arrogant enough to think he could beat these charges in court.

No trial date has been set as of yet.

One thought on “Former WWE Champion indicted on kidnapping and sexual assault charges”

  1. Del Rio should not have been granted bail. He’s a danger to the community. He’s obviously got the money to pay the right lawyer. I assume the prosecutor is relying on corroborating testimony from the victim’s son.
