Global Force Wrestling (GFW) has just released a statement that they are stripping Alberto El Patron of the Unified GFW/Impact Heavyweight Title and he remains on indefinite suspension.
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.
El Patron was originally suspended back on July 12, three days after the domestic violence incident with Paige at Orlando International Airport, which occurred after the last set of GFW tapings. The last episode from those tapings aired this past Thursday.
GFW's live Destination X special is this Thursday, August 17. El Patron had been slated to face Low Ki.
GFW released hype videos for the match to their YouTube page just yesterday. You can watch them above and below.
