Alberto El Patron Discusses The Public Incident With Paige At An Orlando Airport, & More


During a recent interview with SportsKeeda, Alberto El Patron (Alberto Del Rio) discussed his suspension from iMPACT! Wrestling, his issues with Paige and more. You can check out some highlights below:

On if he prefers playing a heel or a face: “If you ask me, I’d rather be a heel. I’m a bad guy, inside and outside the ring (laughs out loud). I’m a person that gives respect but demands respect. I love working as a heel. The heel is the man controlling the match, controlling the motions. The heel is telling the audience what to do. If the bad guy wants them to cry, they will cry. If he wants them to laugh, they will laugh.”

On the mental toll of recent events “In the world we live in today, your life is going to be public, for people to see. I’m old school. I’ll never be happy with people just exposing their lives, and expecting you to tell them what you do, even when you just go to the toilet. It was very difficult for me to accept that everything I do is public knowledge.”

On the public incident with Paige at an Orlando airport “That day, a woman decided to invade our privacy. And nothing really happened. A man and a woman were having a rough day, an argument like all the couples out there. Some arguments are worse than others. That doesn’t mean that there’s anything bad going on. Nothing really happened but a couple having an argument!”
