Alberto El Patron says he missed AAA show because he was stabbed

AAA didn’t pull any punches in their statement about Alberto El Patron (fka Del Rio) no-showing their Heroes Inmortales X event in Monterrey last night (Oct. 2) - likely because they hadn’t heard from the second-generation luchador after confirming his appearance yesterday morning.

El Patron shared his explanation for missing the show with the world after providing documentation to AAA. And it certainly is a valid excuse.

Per his Instagram, Alberto was grabbing a bite to eat before getting on his plane to the show when he was the victim of a knife attack:

He also shared a photo of lacerations on his head and arm from the attack:

Scary stuff, and oddly the second stabbing of a pro wrestling figure in the last week. Be careful out there, superstars.

El Patron is scheduled to appear in the United Kingdom for WCPW on Thursday, Oct. 6.

We’ll update with more details of the incident and his status for upcoming bookings as we have them.
