GFW Split Over How To Handle Alberto El Patron/Paige Altercation


According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there was a split reaction within Global Force Wrestling and Anthem Media over how to handle Alberto El Patron after news of his altercation with Paige at the Orlando airport.

It was said that there were some on the corporate side that wanted Patron to be gone from the company while others, mostly on the wrestling side, wanted to keep Patron due to his star power on Twitter and in Latino media reach makes him a huge deal to them.

The “old school” wrestling mindset had people in past eras cover up scandals. There are also some who feel that when Paige’s contract with WWE expires, she could jump to GFW and add some star power to the women’s division due to Patron working there.

Both sides felt that suspending Patron was the right move as firing him before the case was settled wouldn’t be the best move. Everyone agreed that something had to be done, though.

The site also says that as of yesterday, the two are back together and happy, “wondering why so much of a fuss has been made regarding them.” Sources also say the have appeared to have broken up several times in the past few weeks to the point that friends assume even if Patron says they’ve broken up, they will get back together shortly.
