Alberto del Rio gets into backstage brawl Sunday night in MexicoBy Dave Meltzer | @davemeltzerWON | Dec 12, 2016 9:58 am
A fight broke out Sunday night backstage at a show at Arena Naucalpan involving Combate Americas figurehead president Alberto Rodriguez (the former Alberto del Rio0 and a wrestler best known as Alan Extreme, who was wrestling as Tortuga Rafy.
Rodriguez and Paige were at the show to see Rodriguez's brother Guillermo (El Hijo de Dos Caras) wrestle. They went backstage where there was a very narrow passageway and Rodriguez got hot at Extreme, believed to be because he thought he was touching Paige inappropriately.
An argument ensued. According to an eyewitness report, Rodriguez started yelling at Extreme, who blew him off. Rodriguez got hot at that and the much smaller Extreme tried to push him away, leading to punches being thrown. It was said to be very one-sided and spilled out to where fans saw it happening. Extreme was bleeding pretty badly but said this morning on Facebook that he was okay.
Oficial AK-47, one of the wrestlers in charge of the show, Oficial AK-47 made multiple Facebook posts where he threatened legal action and pretty much warned Rodriguez not to come back to the building.
