Alberto Del Rio Looking At Serious Jail Time

José Alberto Rodríguez Chucuan, otherwise known at Alberto Del Rio in WWE, Alberto El Patron and Dos Caras Jr. in Impact Wrestling, CMLL, AAA, ROH, and other promotions, was arrested and charged with second-degree assault felony and aggravated kidnapping back in May 2020.  He was indicted by a grand jury in San Antonio, Texas on Thursday.

Rodríguez Chucuan (referred to as ADR following) has been released on $50,000 bond but is set to be arraigned on Friday.  The trial date has yet to be set, and with Covid-19, it might not be as quick as it otherwise would be.  If convicted, under Texas law, of the aggravated kidnapping in the second degree, he could face 2-20 years in jail, and/or a fine of up to $10,000.  If convicted, under Texas law, of felony second-degree assault, he could face 5-99 years, or life in prison, and/or a fine up to $10,000.

ADR, who was not affiliated with any wrestling company when the alleged assault, has been accused of attacking a woman he was in a relationship with at the time.  As we reported when he was first arrested, it is alleged that he grew enraged with her after accusing her of infidelity and he physically assaulted her. It was also alleged that after she would not admit to the infidelity that ADR “slapped her across the head” several times and “forced her to wear a dress and dance for him.”  It was also alleged that he threatened to take the victim’s son and “drop him in the middle of the road somewhere.”


After the grand jury, News 4 San Antonio reported on the alleged felonies as such:

Police said Rodriguez Chucuan [Del Rio] then tied the woman’s hands with boxing straps, put a sock in her mouth and sexually assaulted her for several hours, using various objects. According to investigators, he also punched her in the back during the assault, causing visible injuries. The victim told detectives she does not remember much after he placed his hand around her throat.


QD – You had to know I couldn’t let this pass without being totally mouthy about it.  For those new to WR and new to my writing, I have been a very loud critic of ADR since his first video appearance in WWE.  I picked him to win the 40 Man Royal Rumble because I could see where WWE was going, not because I thought he deserved it in any way, shape, or form.  I could see through him from day one and like a dog with a bone, I couldn’t let it go.  It was more than phoning it in when in the ring, I could see that his soul was black and that he wasn’t someone who should be on TV, he was dangerous.  We saw it when he got into fights backstage, and how he treated Paige when they were together.  I’m not one to wish ill will on anyone, but I’m so glad to see he isn’t getting away with these alleged crimes.  (Yes, it kills me to use the word alleged so much, but I have to be a reporter first, raging, seething woman who can’t abide by filth like him second.)
