The stabbing incident involving Alberto El Patron, formerly Alberto Del Rio of WWE, keeps getting stranger. We already reported that Del Rio was a no show to the Heroes Immortales X AAA event on Sunday, October 2nd due to this assault in San Antonio, Texas. The report states that Del Rio was stabbed several times in the head and arm by a man on Saturday, October 1st after this man hit Del Rio’s car with his own. Del Rio and the other driver both exited their vehicles, exchanged heated words, which led to the man pulling out a knife. Del Rio reportedly tried to leave, but was stabbed from behind. The two ended up on the ground where Del Rio was able to disarm them man, who then fled in his vehicle. Witnesses were able to record the assailant’s license plate and call the police.
Here is where things get a little sketchy. According to both Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio and Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, the San Antonio police department has no record of this attack. This is not to say that the attack didn’t happen, just that the police definitely were not notified as previously reported. The fact that the mystery assailant has not been named in spite of a license plate allegedly being recorded adds credibility to Meltzer’s and Satin’s claim.
Another hiccup in this stabbing story is that Del Rio reported to a Mexican media outlet that his girlfriend, WWE Superstar Paige, was present during this attack. According to the report, Paige tried to assist and was thrown to the ground by the assailant. When Del Rio went to ensure she was uninjured, the man fled in his car. By itself, this isn’t a big deal, but Del Rio claimed that the reason he was a no call/no show for AAA on Sunday was because his phone was lost during the attack. If Paige was present, surely she could have loaned her boyfriend her own phone to make the call.
There was also some speculation that Del Rio was in Texas for reasons related to WWE, seeing as how the Royal Rumble will be returning there for the first time in 20 years. This is a complete coincidence and there is no reason to assume that Del Rio has somehow mended fences with WWE and will be returning; he has ended that professional relationship for the foreseeable future. We will continue to provide updates to this story as they become available.
