Alberto El Patron is no longer part of Impact Wrestling. He was fired after no-showing Friday’s Lucha Underground vs. Impact Twitch TV event in New Orleans.
As a result, the main event for Redemption has been changed. It will now be Impact World Champion Austin Aries vs. Rey Fenix vs. Pentagon Jr.

PWInsider reports that Patron claimed he was sick, but many felt he was blowing off the show. Also, there’s a story circulating that Ed Nordholm and others were concerned over the health of Patron and that the police were nearly called for a wellness check.
Since joining Impact Wrestling, Patron has caused the promotion problems. He was stripped of the title and suspended for months after getting into an altercation with then fiancée Paige at an airport.
