Four-time WWE Champion Alberto El Patron reportedly got into a backstage argument at a KAOZ Lucha Libre event in Monterrey, Mexico.
The former WWE star was apparently told to show up at the venue at 3 PM. Alberto allegedly arrived two hours late and was barred from entering the locker room. As reported by WrestlingNews.co, promoter Alonso Botello informed security personnel about stopping the former world champion.
El Hijo de Dos Caras, Alberto El Patron’s brother, was at the arena and was also seen screaming at the promoter. Dos Caras accused him of playing up to the cameras and claimed that El Patron was never told to come to the show at 3 PM.
Alberto eventually made it to the ring and even wrestled a match, as you can view in the video footage above.
#4. News on Charlotte Flair’s WWE future
Charlotte Flair had a brutal ‘I Quit’ match against Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania Backlash. The Queen was effectively written off TV with a broken radial bone, and the storyline injury is expected to keep her out for months.
In the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer stated that Flair is taking some time off to prepare for her marriage to Andrade. The ceremony is scheduled to take place during Memorial Day weekend.
The former SmackDown Women’s Champion is scheduled to return during the summer. Additionally, she is expected to resume her feud with Ronda Rousey once she is ready to compete again.
“This was to explain Flair being out of action due to getting ready for her wedding with Manny Andrade of AEW over Memorial Day weekend. She is scheduled to return over the summer going for revenge,” said Meltzer.
It remains to be seen whether Charlottle Flair will be able to win back the SmackDown Women’s Championship upon her return or if she succumbs to defeat once again at the hands of Ronda Rousey.
