There was a major change to the main event for the Impact Wrestling vs. Lucha Underground show in New Orleans on Saturday night. Alberto El Patron was scheduled to team with Pentagon 0M against Rey Fenix and Austin Aries but El Patron no-showed the event. El Patron has no-showed events before for other promotions but in those cases, he had yet to board the plane to the destination city. In this case, Alberto was in town and just minutes away. In fact, he was at the Impact Wrestling Redemption press conference just a few hours earlier.
It’s not clear exactly why he disappeared but he apparently reached out to Impact management to tell them that he could not appear because he was sick. Again, he appeared at the Impact Wrestling Redemption press conference just a few hours earlier in the same city.
The main event was changed into a three-way match and it was said to be great. Prior to the match, when fans were informed that El Patron would not be there, they chanted “Fuck Del Rio.”
We will pass along more updates as we get them.
