Alberto Del Rio aka Alberto El Patron in Global Force Wrestling was recently stripped of his world title. The reason is the airport domestic violence incident involving he and his girlfriend Paige. The report that came out was that it was Alberto who struck Paige, but it is now believed it was the reverse and Paige was the perpetrator. Regardless, the social media fallout was not handled well by either of them and GFW has taken action via press release.
Alberto El Patron Indefinite Suspension Update
GFW has concluded its internal consideration of the events surrounding the suspension of Alberto El Patron. While it is apparent that initial reports unfairly characterized El Patron’s involvement in the incident in the Orlando airport, we are nonetheless disappointed with the manor in which he dealt with this situation; we expect more decorum from all on the GFW roster, especially the World Champion.
We have communicated with El Patron our decision to strip him of his championship title. No decision has been taken as to the date on which he will be reinstated to the roster, the conditions of which are a private matter between the company and El Patron.
