Alberto El Patron’s GFW Return Confirmed
As we reported yesterday, there were plans in the works for Rey Mysterio and Alberto El Patron to face off at GFW’s Bound For Glory later this year, but those fell through due to El Patron’s suspension and the talks between GFW and Mysterio falling through. But during a GFW conference call today, John Gaburick, one of the members of the company’s creative team, confirmed that El Patron will be returning to the promotion for Bound For Glory in November.
“We have plans for Alberto, we’re excited that he’s gonna be coming back at Bound For Glory. We’re excited about the future for Alberto, he’s an amazing talent and as a creative group we’re really excited to come up with some real cool scenarios and stories for him in the upcoming months.”
Bram Tries To Clear The Air
After a furor on social media this morning where fans were extremely vocal about their displeasure at Ireland’s OTT Wrestling for booking Bram, the promotion canceled his appearance. Bram then took to social media to tell his side of the story.

Bram, in part, said he was falsely accused by someone out to hurt his reputation and that he has never physically harmed a woman. He then called out the so-called “social justice warriors”, accusing them of hateful rhetoric.
Bram was arrested in 2015 and charged with one count of domestic battery by strangulation as well as one count of false imprisonment after authorities responded to calls of a fight in his home. It was noted in the arrest report that he admitted to holding the victim down by her throat and refused to let her leave a bedroom. He later plead not guilty to all charges. The case was resolved when the State Attorney’s office declined to prosecute.
