Default Breaking: Alberto El Patron Stripped of GFW World Title

http://impactwrestling.com/alberto-e...sion-update-2/

He's also still suspended, meaning he likely won't be appearing at Thursday's Destination X. This is a big surprise as he was announced as defending against Low Ki on this coming week's show. There is no word on when he'll be back, but unless it's for the TV tapings, you might not be seeing Alberto in GFW for a very long time.

The way this reads, he's effectively been ousted. Unless I'm misreading their intent, it sure seems clear they're distancing themselves from him in a way they simply couldn't prior to this (haven already taped so much in advance from the point of the incident until now). Rather than scramble to fill that void, they effectively waited out this announcement until those episodes concluded as a necessary evil.

"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."

Translation: "We signed Patron to a guaranteed contract that he will be riding out before leaving the company".

I agree with Anthem on this move. Patron has not made the best choices in the eyes of the Public. He has embarrassed himself (as a World Champion), which in return embarrasses the company that he is employed under. GFW has the stigma of TNA still spilled all over them. They are trying to distance themselves from this stigma which is smart on their end. Allowing the episodes to air while keeping Patron suspended was the best move possible. Then stripping him of the belt once a live episode is supposed to air is smart due to not having Patron be stripped during the investigation only to see him on iMPACT as WHC would have been a silly move.

Patron needs a wake up call. All the WWE bashing he was doing to now being stripped of a title that is the main prize in the company is mind boggling. He needs to get his crap together some how. GFW seems to not want Patron any longer and he more than likely will be sitting at home until his contract is over. Good on GFW for standing ground and showing the roster that they are not here to play games like prior TNA management.

This kinda help the company shake the TNA aura that wass following them in a way. Back when dixie was still running things, a situation like this would have been sweep under the rug and business would go on as usual. Now they are actually taking action even if this mean losing they biggest start and probably their main event of their next show.

The interesting thing now is what are they going to with the title. That got me interested in watching impact next thursday just to see how they will deal with this situation on tv.

In a way this makes me feel better. Until now, how much punishment had Alberto really received? Assuming he was still being paid during his suspension, he was never off TV and missed two house shows which weren't the best attended in the world. That's more of a paid vacation than a suspension, which really doesn't sound like it means anything. Now it feels like he's actually in trouble, which feels like a change of pace for the company. That's a good thing too as they haven't been the best with accountability at times.

They had no choice in the matter, KB. You watched the same episodes I did. He was all over them. You simply can't fill that void. What was the alternative to simply not air content for a month and a half?

This arguably is his punishment. It just took longer than we'd like given GFW's operating model.

Good Riddance to Alberto. You don't want a guy who is surrounding himself with crap and coke as champ.

Id put Eli Drake in the main event in place of Alberto and have him beat LowKi to become the new champion. Then I'd recreate the Shane Douglas ECW title promo and have Eli throw the TNA title in the Trash. I'd have him cut a promo something like...

When Jarrett came back they talked about making impact great again. It wasn't great in the first place because they never gave Eli Drake a shot at the gold. Now...Eli Drake is the man who is going to lead Global Force Wrestling into the future and make it exactly what the name says. This company will be a Global Force. Every man, woman, and child will know my name. In every language the translation of champion will be Eli Drake. That's not an insult...that's just a fact of life.

Agree with a few things here.....firstly, i DO think Eli Drake should be in the main event, but not in place of Alberto, in place of Low Ki. Low Ki is a heel and should remain that, i think the person to replace Alberto should be either 1) a new signed talent or a face that should be in a title match...maybe have a 4 way with Lashley, Sydal, Drake and that newly signed guy. i was ok with Low Ki vs. El Patron because the feud was writing itself, but Drake as a heel should beat a face for the title.

As for throwing the belt in the trash, i like the first part of that, but i dont want him to claim that he's been underused or anything like that.

Have that be the way they introduce the new GFW World Heavyweight Championship, have him either trash it in a promo or have an over the top celebration ceremony where he gets the new championship belt. Eli Drake should be champion.....with that said, i have a bad feeling that the champion will either be Lashley or that newly signed talent and while i think a new talent being champion is good, i dont think they should pass Eli Drake right now who's the best on the microphone and has fine in ring skills.

They have no choice but to strip and distance themselves, he was still caught on audio talking openly in public about drug use with Paige... that's a big no-no. Wouldn't be shocked if he's refused a test and this is why they actually went as far as taking the title back/not reinstating him.

TNA has some real problems right now, fighting for trademarks with the Hardyz should end now and they need to focus on their own company...not trying to screw percentages out of talents working elsewhere.

GFW seems to not want Patron any longer and he more than likely will be sitting at home until his contract is over. Good on GFW for standing ground and showing the roster that they are not here to play games like prior TNA management.
So police suspect that Paige was the one abusing El Patron at the airport, and yet he is stripped of the belt, despite being the victim of "domestic violence".

I thought that it was ruled that he was the victim. I know it is hard for the public to swallow a man being the victim, and the woman being the perpetrator, of domestic violence, but it does happen.

Also, people's hate of El Patron is driven, I think, by the resentment that he got pushed and won the belt "before he was ready" (funny, though, how it doesn't bother the same people that Finn Balor won the belt at his first PPV, or how Shitstain Nakamura might win the WWE Title so soon after being elevated to the main roster, but then, Del Rio isn't anorexic like Balor or Shitstain, he doesn't gyrate to opera music, doesn't paint his face, and was pushed by Vince, and the fans hate that).

I thought Del Rio got pushed too soon as well, but he has a cool finisher, and he puts on quite good matches. I would have liked to have seen a Kurt Angle v Del Rio match in WWE.

I think too, some of the comments are coming from the ten people who still watch that shambles of a company (TNA/GFW), and put over anything they do, and bag anything WWE does, to pretend to have some relevance.

Decisions like this and the standoff of a gimmick Matt Hardy created that saved TNA from going under, show why this company should be put out of its misery, so that I can enjoy the old days of TNA on the "WWE Network" once Vince buys the company and sticks ECIII and whomever else is left , in NXT.
