Alberto El Patron Skipping Event – New day, same story. After being fired from IMPACT Wrestling in April, Alberto El Patron was looking for a new home.

Now Patron is not only going to be skipping the event, but he’s claim it’s over pay issues. Patron claims that AAA never agreed upon a deposit for him. Considering AAA has had financial issues in the past, and the fact that El Patron has a history of no-showing events in the past, it makes sense that they wouldn’t give him money before he showed up.
