August 6, 2020
Alberto El Patron Reportedly Involved in Backstage Brawl
It’s being reported that the latest drama to occur in the life of Alberto Del Patron is that of a backstage fight, which has left him with a massive bullseye on his back among the lucha libre community. Both Alberto and Paige were at the IWRG card at Mexico’s Arena Naucalpan, where his brother was also wrestling. Whilst backstage, Alberto encountered IWRG wrestler Rafy and accused him of either touching him or his fiancee Paige, before escalating into both men exchanging punches.
The fight soon spiralled out of control as both men brawled into the hallway opposite the fan entrance, with several fans witnessing the bizarre fight, it’s worth noting that Rafy is short for Raphael (yes, as in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Raphael). Although Alberto left the fight relatively unscathed, the much smaller Rafy was said to be fairly banged up after the fight.
According to LuchaBlog, both Alberto and Paige were seen drinking at the card. For further details be sure to check out LuchaBlog below.
