Alberto El Patron was on the latest edition of Keeping It 100 with Konnan, where he spoke at length on why he and recently returned WWE superstar Paige broke up.

Patron confirmed he and Paige have been broken up longer than people thought as their relationship ended weeks ago:

“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 nonstop. And my schedule is nonstop.”

“We were not seeing each other. And 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. I was coming home for two or three days and had to choose between going to Orlando or seeing my kids. Of course, I decided to stay with my kids.”

“We both agreed not to say absolutely anything because we got tired of the media, people, everyone, having an opinion about us. Including family.”

Patron referenced the supposed altercation he and Paige had in Orlando earlier this year:

“That crap in Orlando, which is completely fake because nothing happened. I never hurt her, she never hurt me. It was just internet BS and people believing it.”

“I didn’t say anything because, number one, I was already suspended. The company and their zero-tolerance thing had me thinking they were going to fire hire. And as you know, unfortunately for female wrestlers, it’s impossible to exist or nearly impossible to exist outside of WWE.”

“We had an amazing relationship. We decided to do this because it was the best for our careers and for my kids.”

“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.”
