According to Pro Wrestling Sheet, former WWE and Impact Wrestling star Alberto El Patron is involved in a legal battle following a brawl which took place at a karaoke bar in November 2016. The report notes El Patron is being sued following the incident, however he believes he is the victim in the case and has filed a countersuit.
According to court documents, Alex Pardo, who is suing El Patron, claims the following:
“While returning to his table from the restroom, Plaintiff noticed the Defendant, JOSE ALBERTO RODRIGUEZ, flashing his rear end to the other patrons in the establishment. Upon returning to his seat, which was close in proximity to that of the Defendant’s, an altercation broke out and the Defendant and the individuals that were present with the Defendant began to assault the Plaintiff, ALEX PARDO. As a result, Plaintiff had to receive immediate medical attention and was transported to the hospital by means of EMS for further examination.”
Further court documents, however, filed by El Patron’s lawyer, claim he and his companion at the bar, who was presumably WWE star Paige, were approached by a young woman in Pardo’s group, and the young woman asked for a photo with El Patron’s companion. When the companion declined, but said she would take one on the way out, other members of the Pardo’s group approached El Patron and his companion and the situation escalated.
“[Alberto] attempted at this time to resolve the issue without conflict and while he did exchange words with the people celebrating with the 19-year-old Patricia at an adult establishment it the Counter-Defendant Alex Pardo who threw a glass at the Counter-Plaintiff’s head causing severe injury, including multiple lacerations. The entire group with the Counter-Defendant began a huge melee and the entire establishment was in a brawl. Counter-Plaintiff slowly rose to his feet only to be rushed again by the Counter-Defendant. The Counter-Plaintiff immediately protected himself and defended against the Counter-Defendant as it was necessary to protect himself and his companions against the Counter-Defendant’s use of unlawful force.”
Drama has ensued in court for months, but after Pardo’s lawyer bailed on the case, El Patron has filed a motion to have Pardo pay him $5,000 for his “pain and suffering,” as well as additional legal fees.
