Alberto said it was not uncommon for top WWE officials to make racists remarks, most of the time towards African Americans and Hispanics, and try and pass them off as jokes. He recalls the situation which led to his termination, and said:
Alberto said he was told by higher-ups, including Vince McMahon, that nothing would happen to him, and even though he was still wrong to slap someone, they understood why it happened.
Alberto also mentioned the person who notified him of his release was guilty of making racist comments backstage around the locker room. He said:
It was previously reported by Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer that Triple H was the person to officially notify Alberto that he was being let go, after initially being told he would just receive a short suspension.
