Alberto gives his take.
The statement reads that there was a disagreement between Alberto and the director of AAA Darren Roldan over a payment issue and one side of the deal was not fulfilled. Alberto would go on to elaborate on this situation while guest appearing on 'The Roman Show' and he went into detail about the falling out of his planned appearance at TripleMania.
“Well you know, I love the pro wrestling business and as of recently I’ve been thinking about retirement." He said. "Its because I don’t like the way they’re doing things in the business, and we could easily see promoters taking advantage of the talent and because, thank God I’m in the position of saying, ‘Okay you can do this show’.... It just happened with AAA, with TripleMania. They called me, they found me. They took me somewhere to spoil me and to ask me if I could do their biggest event of the year and then they never sent the money, they never came with the… when they found me and they asked me to do TripleMania, I was supposed to be facing someone, and they were never able to seal the deal with this other wrestler and they took about three days and it was a situation." He continued, "Long story short, they didn’t fulfill their commitment with me and I don’t work that way. I don’t need this stress in my life and that’s the part I don’t like about pro wrestling. I love the pro wrestling fans. I love the pro wrestling business. When I’m in the ring, that’s when I’m the happiest man in the world, but there’s a lot of aspects of the business that I’m not enjoying anymore and if I end up retiring next year, I’m gonna be doing a last show in the places that were special for me.”
Once TripleMania XXVI concludes, Fightful will posts the results from the show and if you are looking to tune into the event, it will be streamed live on the Lucha Libre AAA Twitch channel.
