Alberto Del Rio put Josh Mathews in the Cross Armbreaker

When Josh Mathews asked World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio to comment on facing the returning John Cena at WWE Hell in a Cell, “Mexico’s greatest export” called the 11-time WWE Champion “the ultimate gringo” and said he had no business returning from a two month absence to battle him at the top of the pile.

Del Rio claimed the Cenation leader had gone soft, before demonstrating what he has in store for the former champion by locking Mathews in the Cross Armbreaker.

Later, in a SmackDown Exclusive video, Matthews stormed off of SmackDown, claiming that WWE had become an unsafe work environment. It remains to be seen whether the outraged announcer will report to work on Monday’s Raw.
