First, CM Punk and now Alberto Del Rio?

According to a report from PWInsider.com, there is apparently some concern within WWE that Alberto Del Rio may decide to leave the company once his contract expires. Yes, this would be yet another case of a wrestler feeling like the creative direction of his character isn't strong enough.

The man himself has allegedly been creating a stir by voicing his frustrations.

Considering the nature of pro wrestling, especially in the so-called "new kayfabe" age, it's best to take any report like this with a grain of salt but there's no doubt that Del Rio has fallen out of favor, at least as far as his portrayal on television is concerned.

Let's take a look at his 2013 run:

He was world heavyweight champion for most of the year before kicking off the 2014 campaign in a feud with Batista designed solely to get "The Animal" over on his way to a title shot at WrestleMania 30.

That's gotta hurt. But bad enough to leave?

Stay tuned.
