Update (8:08 p.m. ET): Representatives from AAA have indicated that Alberto El Patron is indeed back at home in Mexico and is fine. Why he no showed this event remains unknown. Thanks to Wrestleview reader @SandroTWIS for sending word.
Chris Ronquillo of Lone Star Championship Wrestling sent out the following statement regarding Alberto El Patron (former WWE star Alberto Del Rio) no showing a live charity event on Sunday night in Pasadena, Texas. Ronquillo, who expressed concern regarding the whereabouts of El Patron as attempts to contact him were not returned, is hoping that he will return the deposit he was paid and possibly give a donation.
El Patron has not sent out any new tweets since Saturday. You can check out the full statement issued to Wrestleview.com below.
STATEMENT FROM LONE STAR CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING
Almost 24 hours later, we still have not heard from the camp of Alberto El Patron. Mr. El Patron was booked through our co-promotion partner Clutch City Productions to headline the Bustin 4 Autism charity pro wrestling event in Pasadena, TX last night.
Mr. El Patron would not know who we are directly, since his camp’s dealings were with our promotional partner. Like the charity and fans who purchased tickets, we are affected. A lot of time, money and effort was put in to this event. Those who know us, understand that we strive to put on quality events. We are a company that our fans can trust. Mr. El Patron’s unexcused and unexplained “no show” unfairly taints that reputation. Though we were not directly involved in the negotiation and booking with El Patron’s camp, there is no doubt that the Bustin 4 Autism team were more than fair and gracious in the process.
At this point, our thoughts are initially with Mr. El Patron’s well being. He seems to have disappeared. Once the dust settles, we are confident that Mr. El Patron will do the right thing and return the deposit he was paid, along with premium travel funds lost by the charity. We might also suggest that Mr. El Patron take it a step further, and make an additional donation to the charity.
We would like to thank the fans and sponsors who stepped up to support this event for the Bustin 4 Autism 501c group. We would also like to recognize our co-promotional partner, Clutch City Productions, who put forth an incredible effort to promote and help organize this event. We look forward to working with them and the Bustin 4 Autism folks in the future.
In closing, we also thank the wrestlers who stepped up to make this a memorable event, as well as the many staff members and volunteers who contributed in some manner.
