TMZ is reporting Shelly Ehler took her 8-year-old son to a WWE live event and he left in tears. Her son had a sign for Sheamus, who was taking on Alberto Del Rio that night, and Del Rio ripped his sign.
Ehler said her son was instantly terrified of Del Rio's actions and she called Del Rio a bully. Del Rio would go on to mock her son crying. Ehler wrote an angry letter to WWE officials and says, '"Take signs from adults NOT KIDS! My son was bullied by your superstars and it is not okay."
Ehler goes on to say Ricardo Rodriguez mocked her on Twitter but Sheamus offered to send her son a signed photo and meet him next time he's in town.
In response to the mother's allegations that Del Rio bullied her child, WWE has issued the following statement:
While Alberto Del Rio and Ricardo Rodriguez were portraying their WWE characters, we sincerely apologize for any misunderstanding that may have occurred.
