It’s been well documented that Alberto El Patron failed to appear at Friday’s Impact Wrestling vs. Lucha Underground event at WrestleCon. At the show, he was originally scheduled to team with Penta El 0M against Austin Aries and Rey Fénix.

His excuse was that he had got sick through the course of the day despite word among talent that he actually no-showed.

This led to the promotion releasing El Patron effective immediately. The release is due to him not appearing at Friday’s show. Aries was originally slated to defend the Impact Title against El Patron at their Redemption PPV later this month.

The promotion sent out the following statement:

“IMPACT Wrestling announced today that it has terminated its agreement with Alberto El Patron, effective immediately.”

Thus, the promotion has announced a new main event for their Redemption PPV. It will now be Aries vs. Fenix vs. Pentagon Jr. for the Impact World Championship.

Impact Wrestling will hold their Redemption pay-per-view event on April 22nd, 2018 in Orlando, Florida at Universal Studios. The event will air on traditional PPV outlets and the FITE TV app. Here is the updated card:

Impact Wrestling champion Austin Aries vs. Rey Fenix vs. Pentagon Jr.

X-Division champion Matt Sydal vs. Petey Williams

Impact Wrestling Tag Team champions LAX vs. Eli Drake & Scott Steiner

The “first-ever” House of Hardcore Match: OVE vs. Moose & Eddie Edwards & Tommy Dreamer
