GFW suspends Alberto El Patron due to domestic abuse investigation

Alberto Del Rio

The current situation between Global Force Wrestling and Alberto El Patron has finally come to a head. Alberto is GFW’s current Global Champion but he was recently involved in an airport altercation with Paige that resulted in the cops being called on them.

A domestic abuse investigation was launched, but that wasn’t the only thing that came out of this situation either. A very alarming audio recording was also leaked of the confrontation in which Paige can be head screaming: “press charges if it gets me the f**k away from you! It gets me the f**K away from you!”

This very public situation caused Paige’s brothers to speak out on the matter where they alleged Alberto was abuse to Paige and they fear for their sister’s life. Paige’s brother Zak also claimed Alberto is continually abusive to Paige but uses his money to get himself out of sticky situations.

There were also claims that drugs, specifically cocaine was involved as well. Alberto allegedly claimed that Paige had cocaine in her bags and told people to check for it saying if they found something it is all her’s. Needless to say, this is all a mess and something needed to be done about it.

As the domestic abuse investigation continues Global Force Wrestling has stepped up and finally made a decision on the matter. It appears as though Alberto will be suspended pending the conclusion of this domestic abuse investigation.

GFW had the following short announcement on the matter:

“Global Force Wrestling has indefinitely suspended Alberto El Patron, effective immediately, until the investigation is resolved following a recent incident in Orlando, Florida.”

There is still no word on what GFW plans to do about the television shows they’ve already taped for their Pop TV broadcasts. Alberto was heavily featured as Global Champion and his partnership with LAX seemed to be a big story line in the next couple of months for GFW as well.

As more information breaks we will keep you updated so keep checking back for more on this story.

    Doesnt all this seem eerily similar to what happened with Matt Hardy and Reby during their infamous on-again, off-again relationship period?

    She definitely needs some professional help. If not drug related, then at least for psychological issues.

    Sigh. They need to choose better representatives on the show, if they want the GFW or Impact brand to be taken more seriously than TNA. Otherwise all this rebranding effort would have been for naught.

    Of course Paige may not be totally innocent in this, you have to say that considering the type of “promos” he shoots, constant threats made against WWE employees, and all the other crap that comes out of his mouth, the guy is not all there. I would not put it past him to be a woman beater.

    I just hope to god that if any of this is true that Paige finally wises up, and dumps him.
    It is typical of victims of domestic violence to actually side with the abuser, so hopefully her friends and family can get through to her.

    I’m glad they suspended him! I hope Paige comes to her senses and leaves this loser. I wish she were still wrestling in WWE. She had the potential to be the greatest woman’s wrestler and she threw it away to be with that jerk!

    None of this surprise me. His videos and shoot statement sounds like a man who gone crazy. Global Wrestling you have made the same mistake that TNA did put your title an push a WWE reject who will drive fans away more then make them watch.

    They did what they had to do. You can’t have your world champ in this mess. Too bad they shot all of that tv already. But I can’t feel bad for Alberto since he left his wife and kids to be in this mess.
