Default Update - GFW Suspends Alberto el Patron Due to Airport Domestic Violence Incident

Quote:
Professional wrestler Jose Alberto Rodriguez, better known as current Global Force Wrestling Champion Alberto El Patron and formerly Alberto Del Rio in WWE, is being investigated for possible domestic violence Sunday at the Orlando International Airport. Citing witnesses who said they saw an argument he escalated, TMZ first reported the investigation today, which it then confirmed with the Orlando Police Department. When reached by Deadspin, Orlando police issued this statement:

Quote:
There was an incident at Orlando International Airport at about 3 p.m. Sunday involving Jose Rodriguez. The reported incident was a domestic violence battery, and it is still under investigation. No arrests have been made as of this time, but the case remains open. That is all the information we have for release at this time.
While not named by police, Rodriguez’s fiance is Saraya-Jade Bevis, best known as Paige, a WWE-contracted wrestler. The two have been a couple since at least May 2016, when they went public with their relationship. Alberto’s then-wife, Angela Velkei, has claimed in divorce papers that she and her husband broke up two weeks later. The couple has been engaged since last fall, though Paige’s father, Roy “Ricky Knight” Bevis, has been very public about not approving of the relationship.

Paige tweeted the following after TMZ report:

@RealPaigeWWE: WE got the cops involved. I'm crying cuz I found out bad fam news & a lady tries take a pic. She gets angry throws a drink on @PrideOfMexico
Quote:
Hours after its first report, TMZ posted audio it said it got from a wrestling fan who recognized the couple at the airport and recorded what happened. In the audio, a distraught Paige is repeatedly heard telling Alberto to stay away from her and “stay out of my life” while he threatens to call the police. At one point, she adds “Press charges! It gets me the fuck away from you!”

GFW did release a statement to on this earlier today:

Quote:
A rep for GFW tells us, “Global Force Wrestling takes all legal situations very seriously and is looking into this matter. GFW is a privately-held company and will thoroughly investigate this incident and fully cooperate with law enforcement.”

The real kicker with this is that Patron just won both the Impact and GFW titles to unify the World Championship and just participated in effectively the next two months' worth of tapings. According to PWS, it's unclear if they'll even use the footage now. That's an insane hole that they're simply not going to be able to effectively work around. This is immeasurably worse than the last time they had a somewhat similar problem (content-wise) with the whole Hernandez can't be seen because he's under contract and didn't tell them debacle.
