Global Force Wrestling issued the following statement to announce that Alberto El Patron has been stripped of the GFW Championship.
“GFW has concluded its internal consideration of the events surrounding the suspension of Alberto El Patron. While it is apparent that initial reports unfairly characterized El Patron’s involvement in the incident in the Orlando airport, we are nonetheless disappointed with the manor in which he dealt with this situation; we expect more decorum from all on the GFW roster, especially the World Champion.
“We have communicated with El Patron our decision to strip him of his championship title. 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.”
Powell’s POV: It will be interesting to see how El Patron reacts to the news. Neither he nor Paige have commented on the matter as of this update. Meanwhile, it remains to be seen how GFW intends to determine their new champion. They have a “live” show coming up on Thursday that should provide some answers if the company doesn’t address the situation before then.
