According to The Fight Network, Combate C.E.O. Campbell McLaren stated in a recent interview that Alberto El Patron (Jose Rodriguez) will be stepping down from his figurehead role as the president of Combate Americas. You can read McLaren’s statement below:
“He’s probably stepping back his official roles from Combate and he’s going to focus on more on wrestling for the next year or two. It’s a very challenging enterprise and I think it’s very, very hard on the body and difficult to do. Very physical, very athletic, so I he’s kind of asked me if he can step away and with Saraya, focus on wrestling”.
Patron was suspended by Global Force Wrestling following reports of a domestic battery incident at the Orlando International Airport earlier this month. Jeremy Borash stated yesterday that El Patron’s GFW live event status should be decided next week.
