Global Force Wrestling has announced that they have stripped Alberto El Patron of the GFW World Champion. As we noted on Saturday, there was concern that there could be more issues with him because there were incidents that have not been reported that the company was aware of. GFW issued the following statement on their website:

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 [sic] 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.

As you can see in the statement, he is still suspended. If he is not reinstated by this week's Impact Wrestling tapings, then that means that he would be off their TV show until Bound For Glory in October since these next set of tapings will cover them up until that show.

There have been rumors that Rey Mysterio is close to joining the company and, as reported on Sunday, there is another WWE star expected to make his GFW TV debut this week. Click here to find out who that person is.
