Just like , Alberto Rodriguez knows how to stand up for his woman.

Alberto, who goes by the name of Alberto El Patron, after playing the role of Alberto del Rio in the WWE, was apparently involved in a backstage brawl in Mexico, just because that's how Alberto rolls.

Alberto was at an IWRG show in Mexico to see his brother, El Hijo de Dos Caras, wrestle. Apparently a wrestler named Alan Xtreme "inappropriately" touched Alberto's girlfriend, WWE wrestler .

Alberto went after the smaller wrestler and the two brawled. Alberto got the best of the fight and messed up Xtreme's face. Extreme wrestles as part of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-like faction called Los Tortugas Ninja.

Alberto recently took a job as president of Combate Americas.

Del Rio left the WWE earlier this year, unhappy with his push and the direction of his character. Prior to his departure, he was suspended for 30 days for violating the company's Wellness policy.

Del Rio has had a tough year. In October he was allegedly stabbed by someone who he got into a fight with. Del Rio was apparently defending Paige in that instance too.

Del Rio is also a former MMA fighter. He retired with a record of 9-5, which begs the question, what would happen if Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipović put his hands on Paige?
