Alberto Del Rio returned to WWE last October and immediately made an impact by defeating John Cena to win the United States championship. However, the latest WWE rumors suggest that Del Rio is unhappy with his current position in the company and he has a major backstage heat with Triple H.
According to Daily Wrestling News, Del Rio was promised a main event push when he re-signed with the WWE last year. He was fired in August 2014 following an altercation with an employee who made a racist remark towards him.

Nonetheless, he returned and become the US champion only to lose it to Kalisto. He was then inserted in the League of Nations stable that was disbanded a couple of weeks ago.
All of this has caused Del Rio to be unhappy with his position in the WWE and apparently butted heads with Triple H. The report noted that Hunter has issues with the Mexican wrestler since he returned and does not trust him.
It is also mentioned that he told his father-in-law and WWE chairman Vince McMahon to not give Del Rio the main event spot. Triple H reportedly thinks that WWE should not give the 38-year-old wrestler any kind of leverage because it’s going to cause problems in the future.

However, the Wrestling Observer (h/t Sportskeeda) is reporting that Del Rio may be given a push later in the year and face Roman Reigns for the WWE World Heavyweight championship.
Nonetheless, if the WWE releases the four-time WWE World champion, he could still make a lot of money with other promotions like Lucha Underground and Asistencia Asesoría y Administración in Mexico.
The Inquisitr noted that if Del Rio continues to be unhappy, the WWE could just send him home and let his contract out just like what they are doing with Ryback.
