Former WWE and current Impact Wrestling superstar Alberto El Patron recently spoke with Sports Illustrated about a number of pro wrestling topics.
El Patron talked about his current projects, retirement, goals and more. You can check out highlights below and entire interview at this link.
“I’m planning on retiring in two years. I’m still good to go and I don’t have any major injuries, but I always promised myself I would leave on top. I started wrestling when I was eight years old with the amateur wrestling team in Mexico. I love the business with all my heart, but my body is getting tired. It’s all the travel. I’m going to do my last two years with Impact Wrestling. I’ll continue to do some indie shows here and there, and I have a lot of projects outside the business.
I am going to continue running Combate Americas, the MMA company that I work for, and I am going to start a soap opera in Mexico in two months. We also have a reality show produced by Combate Americas that was sold to Amazon. People should be able to see that in three more months.
I opened a restaurant and bar in San Antonio in November. We are the place to go on Fridays and Saturdays. God is blessing me.
I’m getting married pretty soon. We changed the date twice, but we’re getting married in the last week of July, so I am keeping very busy outside the business.”
