Alberto El Patron Becomes U.S. Citizen (PHOTOS)

The Pride of Mexico became an American citizen on Thursday … as Alberto El Patron was one of nearly 550 immigrants who made it official during a ceremony.

Patron — real name Jose Alberto Rodriguez — took part in the naturalization ceremony this week and even let the judge pose with one of his championship belts afterward.

According to Fox29 in San Antonio, Rodriguez became a citizen alongside 548 immigrants from more than 78 countries.

Over the last few years, the former WWE wrestler has made headlines for all the wrong reasons — from a tumultuous breakup with Paige to no-showing the Impact Wrestling show WrestleMania weekend — so it’s nice to see him break into the news cycle for something positive.

Congrats, Alberto!

      Do you have to log back in every time you comment on disqus? I’ve had to ever since they did that terms update thing.

        Yeah, they’ve been doing some weird shit with the log in. I had to prove I am human by selecting certain pictures. That was mostly the past couple of days. Today seems back to normal.
