Fans Believe Gerardo Ortiz Canceled His Gig Because Of A Hangover… So They Destroyed His Set

If there’s one person you do NOT want to mess with it’s a Gerardo Ortiz fan.

Gerardo Ortiz was set to perform at 1:30 a.m. local time on October 1st in Philadelphia… when he decided to cancel his gig at last minute.

Fans were not about it especially after promoters announced they wouldn’t be issuing full refunds.

Fans started vandalizing the set and throwing beer bottles at Ortiz’s band, who was warming up on stage.

Instruments, speakers, lights, chairs and whatever else was in sight was destroyed. Others, like Ivan Lucero, decided to stand aside and record the mayhem.

Ortiz’s representatives later issued an apology on Facebook, stating the singer cancelled the show due to health issues. BUT it was later confirmed by his team that he had a serious stomach ache. *womp*

Fans tried to be understanding, but…

Fans questioned Ortiz’s “last minute” stomach pain, especially after the singer posted a photo earlier where he was drinking beer with some friends.

In the picture, he seemed excited and ready for his performance at Explanada in Philadelphia, assuring fans on social media that they cannot miss his show. “He wasn’t sick, he was drunk. Good thing I didn’t go!” stated one fan on Facebook. He then added: “Si ya saben como es, porque van?” ***LOL***

Was it la cruda or nah? C’mon Gerardo, tell us the truth.

As for the expensive equipment – which suffered the most beating in the incident – everything is fully covered by insurance as told by the sound system’s owner Rodrigo Rodriguez to Univision Radio. Oh, and yes, he will continue working with Ortiz and providing equipment for his shows.

Already having a rocky history with AAA, Alberto’s no-show immediately raised the eyebrows of fans and the promotion.

When he was the champion in 2015, Alberto left AAA for the WWE without giving up his title. A no-no in the world of professional wrestling.

In spite of that snafu, AAA agreed to take back Alberto after he was released from the WWE in September of 2016.

Though people claimed Alberto was underutilized during his WWE run, he was most likely released due to violating the terms of his contract.

Quick to point the blame, AAA immediately addressed Alberto’s absence, saying, “We regret the lack of commitment of Alberto.”

Adding, “He failed the Mexican public that has supported him throughout his career.”

However, Alberto el Patrón had a great excuse: He was busy fending off a knife wielding attacker. (WARNING GRAPHIC)

Though he has a background in MMA, Alberto was unable to completely avoid injury against his attacker.

Though it was no fault of his own, Alberto el Patrón released a statement apologizing to fans and AAA for GETTING STABBED.

Using his real name – José Alberto Rodríguez – Alberto makes it clear that his dedication is not an issue.

Alberto even tweeted out some extra love to AAA.

Like a true champ, Alberto is set to make a full recovery and get back to entertaining the fans.
