After losing public battles to CM Punk and Alberto Del Rio, WWE has decided to become a bit stricter with the wording of their contract. Management wants to ensure that the performers are unable to make a living after they leave the company, so there is now reportedly a new clause that prevents them from working in professional wrestling or UFC for an entire year if they are fired from WWE for disciplinary reasons. They also lose royalties as well.

Those that are hoping to see Alberto Del Rio on a full time basis in ROH, are in for a disappointment. The company has made an official announcement about his signing, and they included the dates in which he will be working. Del Rio is currently scheduled for just three events in January. Nothing has been announced for February, but the former world heavyweight champion has been signed to work the 13th anniversary pay per view in March.
