Impact Wrestling star Alberto El Patron did not appear as advertised for the main event of Friday night’s Impact vs. Lucha Underground live special that aired on Twitch.
Patron was scheduled to team with Pentagon Jr. vs. Impact World Champion Austin Aries and Fenix. He took part in a press conference with Aries on Friday to hype up their match for the Impact Championship in the main event of the Redemption PPV on April 22.
It is said that Patron had reportedly given notice to Impact that he had gotten sick following the press conference and was unable to make the event, but many of the roster backstage at the event on Friday night believed he had just no-showed.
The match that Patron was scheduled for turned into Aries facing Pentagon and Fenix, with Pentagon getting the win over Fenix. Pentagon and Fenix will be debuting for Impact at the Redemption PPV on April 22 in a singles match against each other.
