Cruz was arrested, but according to Attorney General of Justice of Mexico City Ernestina Godoy Ramos, officials had to be release him shortly afterward, because the boy’s injuries were considered minor and since the healing process lasted approximately 15 days according to a medical examiner, per Teledario — and not enough to charge him at the time.
El Vikingo has also been suspended indefinitely by the Mexico City Wrestling Commission, not for the attack on the 5-year-old boy, but for wrestling without a license in the unsanctioned event.
The family of Mateo says that’s he’s recovering and doing well, but of course they are understandably outraged. Mateo’s grandmother informs the press that Mateo no longer has any interest in pro wrestling after the attack and said he doesn’t want to hear about it again. Other wrestlers have attempted to make contact with the family in hopes to ensure that the world of pro-wrestling does not get spoiled for the young boy by this incident.
Other wrestlers have visited Mateo and expressed their outrage and express how “we cannot let these acts of violence happen and authorities need to get to work!”
Update: It was discovered that Vikingo was released from the company on Monday and his license to wrestle remains revoked.
It’s truly a sad and uncalled for situation to say the very least. We here at The Ringside Roster wish Mateo a speedy recovery and hope he returns to being a fan of pro wrestling at some point.
