Global Force Wrestling just announced on their website that Alberto el Patron has been stripped of the GFW championship.

In a statement on their website, GFW announced:

GFW has concluded its internal consideration of the events surrounding the suspension of Alberto El Patron. While it is apparent that initial reports unfairly characterized El Patron’s involvement in the incident in the Orlando airport, we are nonetheless disappointed with the manor (sic) in which he dealt with this situation; we expect more decorum from all on the GFW roster, especially the World Champion.


We have communicated with El Patron our decision to strip him of his championship title. No decision has been taken as to the date on which he will be reinstated to the roster, the conditions of which are a private matter between the company and El Patron.


Patron has not appeared (and according to some sources, been paid) by the promotion since the decision was made to suspend him, pending an internal investigation into the airport incident, which saw Patron investigated for potential domestic battery abuse charges.  As it turned out over the course of the investigation, instead it was Patron's girlfriend WWE star Paige who authorities determined could instead face those charges - a matter that has not yet been decided.

PWInsider.com is told that the decision to keep Patron suspended rests firmly on the shoulders of Anthem VP Ed Nordholm, who is in charge of GFW.   

As PWInsider.com reported earlier today, should Patron not appear at this week's scheduled TV tapings, he will not be figured into GFW storylines through the 11/5 Bound for Glory PPV.

The decision is ridiculous considering there were no charges filed, and the fact that they can't spell all the words correctly in their official statements is equally ridiculous.  I have no idea why GFW is doing this to themselves.

Because Del Rio has been a loose cannon in other regards since leaving WWE and it may be better just to cut their losses and move along before his next big blowup?

He was a loose canon before leaving WWE and they signed him anyway.  This incident isn't nearly as severe as some of the others before and after he came to GFW.  Unless they're planning on releasing him outright, which is unlikely, it makes no sense to keep him suspended and have all the talk about GFW revolve around a negative issue.

Could also just be GFW's latest attempt to keep their name in the news, since they don't seem to be trying to make the product any better.

I expect they are acting now because they sense, like I do, that the Albert & Paige situation is going to spiral out of control and end in a very bad place.

They probably stripped him of the title to try to make him wake up and realise that he needs to sort his life out. If they don't see any signs of him doing that, I expect they will release him.

Bruce Prichard just read a statement on the air wishing "Mr. Patron the best in his future endeavors". It doesn't sound like he's coming back.

Not after Cornette buried him afterwards

I was just about to say that. Cornette went on to contradict El Patron's statement today and said he was stripped and didn't voluntarily relinquish the belt. If this wasn't GFW I'd think this had to be a work, but this is GFW so I just think they basically fired him publicly. 

Also that Cornette-Prichard exchange was just brutal. Brutal. Nonsensical story-telling.

I don't think there has been 1 segment with Prichard since he came back that has been even remotely good. Some have been downright creepy. I don't care how many free podcast downloads he gets, he has added absolutely nothing to these shows. Less than Kongo Kong and Grado.
