During a recent appearance on Konnan's "Keepin It 100" podcast, former Impact Wrestling star Alberto El Patron confirmed that he and WWE Superstar Paige have officially split up.
During his appearance, El Patron explained that the main reason for the couple's split, which he says occurred "weeks ago," was due to their conflicting schedules. He stated that until recently, Paige was living in Orlando, Florida, where she was training for her impending return to the ring, while El Patron was living in San Antonio, Texas with his three children. He further stated that the two tried to see each other as much as they could, but the two ultimately decided that it was too difficult for them to remain together as a couple.
Below is a transcript of El Patron's comments from the podcast:
"We decided to end our relationship because she’s in Orlando, I’m in San Antonio and now she’s back on the road and the schedule over there is non-stop. And my schedule is non-stop with my pro wrestling shows, my projects and stuff with Telemundo-Mexico TV Azteca, calendar, charity events and all that stuff. So we were not seeing each other and then, because she was training and getting ready to go back, they were not letting her come to San Antonio. I couldn’t go to Orlando because I have three little kids and I was coming home two or three days. And I had to choose between going to Orlando or staying with my kids. So, of course, I decided to stay with my kids.
We decided to end our relationship. I know people are just finding out right now... we ended the relationship weeks ago. I mean weeks ago. But we both agreed not to say absolutely anything because we got tired of media, people, everyone having an opinion about us - including family! - having an opinion about our relationship and what we do, or what we used to do, so we decided not to say anything. But actually, when we were in Canada doing Impact tapings, I talked to Paige and I said ‘Listen, I think it’s about time for us to say something because people, they starting to realize that we’re not together, especially because I’m always working and with my kids somewhere else and you’re always hanging out with your friends.’
So I asked her if we should say something and having Paige say ‘No, no, no. I don’t want to, you and I had an agreement. So you want to say something, say something, but I want...’ So I say I’m gonna respect our agreement and I’m not gonna say anything.
But then, apparently a friend accidentally posted a video or put a video out there for a couple seconds then deleted it, but in the internet, once you put something in the internet, it’s there forever. So people started coming to me and I was like, ‘seriously?’ So I called Paige and I said, ‘Come on, what’s going on?’
And she was ‘It was an accident, it was my friend.’ I said, ‘Eh, yeah, but you know, it’s always your friends, it’s always your family, it’s always your brother... it’s always someone from your side. It’s just not fair.’ I said you and I had an agreement and even though it wasn’t you breaking it, it was someone from your side and I’m just tired of being affected by your side of people.
But yeah, that’s the reality of things. We ended up on good terms. She wants the best for me. I want the best for her. I know she’s going to be the most successful Diva in history. She has all the talent and we had an amazing relationship and I just wanna say: the haters, they never broke us. We decided to do this because it’s the best for our careers and my kids."
