Alberto El Patron Explains Why He No-Showed Impact Wrestling Event Over WrestleMania Weekend

Steven Muehlhausen of Sporting News recently spoke with Alberto El Patron to discuss Combate Americas and the conversation led to what happened last weekend when he no-showed two events for Impact Wrestling:
On missing the WrestleCon events over WrestleMania weekend, El Patron had the following to say:
“I had a family situation that I needed to attend (to). As you know, my family, my kids are my priority. The situation was involving them and that’s why I decided to take care of business and take care of my family situation. And that’s all that happened. And that comes to what I was just saying to you. I know people wanted to know absolutely everything. This only concerns my family: my parents, my sister, myself and my kids. And that’s the way it’s going to stay.”
Also during the interview, Patron goes further into his relationship with Impact before the incidents, the last year for him and how much longer he intends to wrestle.
On the whirlwind year El Patron has had in and out of the ring, he had the following to say:

“I think everything was going fantastic. We are human and sometimes we have situations in life that we cannot control. At the end of the day, people will say whatever they want to say. And in this day, they think you as talent or as a celebrity, you have to explain to the world absolutely everything, but you don’t. I mean, there’s certain things that you want to keep to yourself. But unfortunately, most of the celebrities and most of the people that are doing it, they are telling the fans absolutely everything — even when they go to the bathroom or when they go to the supermarket instead of keeping it the way it used to be just to promote the fights, the movies, the songs and your career.

“To me, that was the way I used to conduct my life. In the past, if I was in the middle of a situation involving my personal life, I was always keeping it to me and my family. I wasn’t explaining or telling the fans what was going on because they don’t need to know. They need to know something if its affecting one of your performances or one of your appearances. But they do not need to know absolutely everything because sometimes what’s going on in our lives is really difficult. It’s hard to explain, even to our own family. So just imagine how it is to try and explain to the fans, who at the end of the day are going to say whatever they want.”
