Alberto El Patron Fired by Impact Wrestling After No-Showing 2 Events

Alberto El Patron has done the impossible. He's actually managed to get fired by Impact Wrestling, a company who will literally hire anyone as long as they once worked for WWE and let them do whatever they want. Jeff Hardy literally once wrestled Sting high out of his mind on soma at a TNA PPV and the company didn't fire him. But Alberto El Patron has found the magic formula, it seems.

El Patron failed to show up for his scheduled match at the Impact Wrestling vs. Lucha Underground event on Friday, and then ditched a Wrestlecon autograph signing on Saturday. PWInsider reports that El Patron was released by the company, effective immediately. El Patron was scheduled to face Austin Aires later this month for the Impact Championship in the main event of a PPV.

It's shocking that El Patron would do something so rash and self-destructive when he is normally such an easy-going, dependable guy.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
