It’s looking like Alberto El Patron is going to do Mixed Martial Arts. As noted before, there is a bidding war going on for him with two promotions trying to get him and the offer has gone up to seven figures. It looks like he’ll sign with the company that gives him the best money offer.
Alberto will face Roderick Strong at the January 31st show in Dayton, Ohio. The deal for Alberto in ROH was put together by Joe Koff. Alberto asked to work with ACH because he thinks ACH is really talented and he’s also a San Antonio guy. He also asked to work with Roderick Strong and Kyle O’Reilly. Ultimately it’s up to Hunter Johnson to decide who Alberto will face. The plans are for Alberto to face Jay Lethal on the March 1st pay-per-view.
At last word, there was a deal rumored to be in the $400,000 range from TNA.
