LAX, Alberto El Patron and Bobby Lashley In-Ring Segment:
Last week LAX made a promise and they delivered. Konnan introduces the newest member of LAX, Alberto El Patron. El Patron wants to know what Konnan is doing? They’ve been friends for years and they went through it all together, but he wants to know what that bull crap about telling everyone that he’s joining LAX? El Patron is a leader, not a follower. Konnan brings up all the things that’s happened to Mil Mascaras, Dos Caras, Eddie Guerrero, Rey Mysterio and everyone else, all the problems he had with the previous ownership group and let’s not to forget what they did to El Patron in Stamford. You can call it Cultural Ignorance, but it what was what it was. LAX was repressed.
El Patron will never forget what those motherfuckers did to him, but he’s in a better place. He understands what Konnan is trying to do, just not the way he’s going about it. He became a bitter man, and El Patron was a loner in Mexico and in Japan, and he’ll remain that way here in Impact Wrestling. Konnan says that El Patron is not alone anymore because LAX is his family, and they can start a hispanic revolution that these crackers don’t want. El Patron is letting his emotion dictate his decision making. All El Patron has do to say is SI, SI, SI !!! El Patron says that the answer is no, son of the bitch. LAX starts mauling El Patron in the middle of the ring. Bobby Lashley comes down to the ring and LAX escapes.
