Their sources told them that they are hoping to have Alberto back in time for the TV tapings scheduled for November 11-13 in Las Vegas. The story notes that Impact officials believe that Alberto’s issues have calmed down and the upside (his name recognition) outweighs the risks of signing him. Keep in mind that it was less than a month ago when Alberto took unprovoked shots at Paige and her family on social media.
Alberto continues as the ambassador for the Combate Americas MMA promotion and recently announced plans to fight in MMA next year. He has also stated that he plans to retire after 2019.
