Paige And Alberto El Patron Speak Out On Airport Incident, WWE And GFW Returns
WWE Superstar Paige and GFW wrestler Alberto El Patron (formerly known as Alberto Del Rio) appeared on Busted Open Radio, the SiriusXM show hosted by Bubba Ray Dudley, to discuss the Orlando airport incident that occurred in July. The incident made headlines after audio was released on TMZ, showing Paige telling El Patron, "Just stay out of my life. Leave me the **** alone. I'm trying to get away from you. All the time."
El Patron was suspended by GFW despite being the recently crowned world champion, and Paige's brothers posted on Facebook, claiming to have photo evidence of abuse and saying "she will end up like Whitney Houston or Amy Winehouse…" However, the Orlando police eventually recommended that Paige, not El Patron, be charged with assault.
On Busted Open Radio, Paige and El Patron reiterated Paige's version of events, saying that El Patron said something rude to Paige, resulting in Paige throwing a drink at El Patron, resulting in both of them arguing loudly in public, resulting in the police involvement. They said they regretted their actions, but brushed it off as the kind of fights regular people have in public and said that the police officer involved agreed. They bashed the internet for spreading lies about them while the investigation was ongoing.
Del Rio said that a date has been set for his GFW suspension to be lifted, and Paige said that she passed a final medical test recently and looks forward to returning to WWE soon.
