Via Alberto Del Rio’s social media, the following statement was issued regarding his no-showing the AAA event this weekend.

Mr. Rodriguez (“Alberto El Patron”) shortly after eating a meal before his flight was assaulted by a criminal with a knife outside the restaurant. Mr. Rodriguez suffered multiple lacerations on his arm and other parts of his body defending against the criminal as Police were called by witnesses. Mr. Rodriguez received medical attention and went back to the Police Department and was unable to make his flight. Mr. Rodriguez has spoken with the ownership of Lucha Libre AAA World Wide and given them documentation of the incident. Mr. Rodriguez greatly regrets not being there yesterday for his fans in Mexico and promises to everyone he will make this up as soon as possible. Despite the graphic lacerations Mr. Rodriguez will not miss any of his shows for the remainder of the year and is ready to compete this weekend in the UK. 

This was after AAA previously issued a statement critical of Del Rio:

Lucha Libre AAA WorldWide announced that for reasons outside the company, Alberto ‘El Patron’ was not submitted to the function of Heroes Immortals X , which took just this afternoon. This, despite having confirmed their attendance to the event in advance and even this morning. We regret the lack of commitment of Alberto, as he fails the Mexican public which has supported him throughout his career, to turn it into one of the leading figures of wrestling in Mexico and internationally. For Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide, it is important to offer the best shows of international quality, in addition to strengthening that Mexican wrestling is the best in the world and is a fundamental part of the culture of our country.
