Alberto Del Rio Comments on Beat Down….

  • Ronald Ryan


    • Carter Williams

      Sounds like a pretty logical scenario. Since RVD is on a Jericho like schedule I don’t see them putting the belt on him unless it was for a new heel to be crowned champ shortly after since they try to avoid the whole heel vs heel thing, especially when it comes to titles.

      • Dennis Justice

        More possible is RVD beats Del Rio but gets a DQ loss against Sandow. Then Del Rio invokes the rematch clause the next night and wins it back.

  • Rob Damovieguy

    Yes that seems the logical route, have RVD beat Del Rio but problem with Sandow cashing in the World Heavyweight Championship,his two losses to Cody Rhodes, he has gone down the ladder and it would be stupid to give him belt. RVD will hold it for at least one PPV and drop it possibly in Hell in the Cell

    • Carter Williams

      But think about it like this, they’ve wanted Cody in the title picture for a bit now this is the perfect opportunity. After he beat Sandow again on RAW Lawler or Cole said that if Damien cashed in and won, by all rights Cody should be number one contender. Perfect way to get Cody into the title picture with a feud already set up.
