Alberto Del Rio Suspended From This Week’s SmackDown,

In response to back-to-back attacks by World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio on No. 1 contender Big Show, SmackDown General Manager Booker T announced Tuesday night that he has suspended the Mexican grappler from this week’s SmackDown.

“Following the incidents last Friday on SmackDown as well as this week on Raw,” Booker told, “it is my duty as GM to suspend Alberto Del Rio. He will not be in action this Friday night and will not be in the building.”

WWE teased in the announcement: “While there is no question these latest developments will make a profound impression on this week’s edition of the blue brand, one has wonder how it will affect the upcoming World Title Match between Del Rio and The World’s Largest No. 1 contender at Elimination Chamber.”

    They better not do something stupid, like strip the title from him. I doubt they would.

    I read that in Booker’s voice.

      I think it’s common to read something in a person’s voice when you are reading what the person actually says and you know what they sound like.

    Del Rio gets suspended from the building even though neither of the attacks actually happened inside of the arenas. And Big Show attacks Del Rio inside the arena but doesn’t get suspended. Do the writers even try anymore?

    The Shit(shield) attack people every week but no suspension but two attacks on The Big Shit(retire already please) he’s gone. ADR is the complete wrestler, everyone should see that.
