Alberto El Patron has been stripped of the Global Force Wrestling title after an internal investigation has been completed.
Patron was suspended while GFW management investigated issues that led to an incident at an Orlando Airport in July. Although Patron was not charged with anything stemming from the incident with his fiancee Paige, GFW did do an internal investigation.
Jeff Jarrett took a page of of the NFL’s book, as he did state in a recent conference call that an internal investigation would be done regardless of if any criminal charges would be laid.
Global Force Wrestling released the following statement.
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.
It was originally thought that Patron would return to at the TV tapings on August 17th, that is not the case.
