Alberto El Patron

Former WWE and current Impact Wrestling star Alberto El Patron (aka Alberto Del Rio) has officially pulled out of a scheduled appearance for WrestleCon during WrestleMania weekend.

Patron issued the following statement citing the recent incident with WWE star Paige who had a series of private photos and videos posted on the internet.

“Due to the invasion of our privacy, I need to be home with the person that needs me more at the moment and our family.  Thanks for your support and I’ll be seeing you next time.” opted to not cover the situation with Paige and other wrestling stars who were hacked out of respect. However, with Patron pulling out of a scheduled appearance and many fans spending a lot of money to attend Orlando next week for various WrestleMania or non-WrestleMania activities, we felt it important to run this statement.



  1. Yes, it was made public on a giant media website leading to a gigantic lawsuit. This situation involved leaked materials on Twitter. What’s your point?

  2. I think what he’s trying to say the ya’ll covered the sext tape scandal with Hogan,but not the same thing with Paige,Bradd Maddox,and Xavier Woods.

  3. And I again ask, what’s the point? They are two entirely different situations. One situation was made public by a giant media company that created a landmark lawsuit. The others were hacked and distributed on social media. I see zero correlation.

  4. so TMZ isnt a big media website covering this? it’s all over the place which everyone knows about now. so hogans sex tape wasn’t leaked? the point is wv says they don’t cover stuff like this and yet they did with hogan’s sex tape even before the lawsuits.

  5. Personally I have to agree that Hogan could have been shown the same respect if that was the reason for not running the Paige story as it (the Hogan one) was shared here well before it lead to any lawsuit as that was how I found out about it and yet with the Paige stuff I saw it the details everywhere online (TMZ, Perez, it was trending, etc.) which is at least similar to being on one media website – still, ultimately it’s up to WV to decide what to publish and I respect that you didn’t run it but think if it was out of respect, the Hogan one could have been given the same but again, organizations evolve, times change, and it really is your choice and you’re given us free content daily so thanks a bunch for all you do 🙂
