The fallout from Alberto El Patron’s departure from Impact Wrestling is still a discussion.
El Patron failed to appear at the Impact Wrestling vs. Lucha Underground event at WrestleCon earlier this month during WrestleMania weekend. At the show, he was originally scheduled to team with Penta El 0M against Austin Aries and Rey Fénix.
This led to the promotion releasing El Patron due to him not appearing at the show.
SI.com recently interviewed Impact Wrestling executive Scott D’Amore. During this interview, D’Amore opened up on the release of the former world champion.
“It was obviously an unfortunate situation. When Alberto failed to show up to the event, we made our decision on a new main event for the show. It was important for us to give our fans, in a capacity crowd at the Sugar Mill in New Orleans, a great event, and we did not want them to focus on someone who wasn’t there.
We wanted them to focus on the match we were giving. Those three guys went out, were so professional, and put on an amazing match. Then we sat down and huddled.”
