Alberto Del Rio To Face Dolph Ziggler At WrestleMania?, Update On Rumble Match, Alberto Del Rio Surprises Kids

– WWE officials have broached the possibility of an Alberto Del Rio vs. Dolph Ziggler match at WrestleMania 29, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. However, it was noted that the match may not necessarily be for the World Heavyweight Championship currently held by Del Rio.

– Current plans call for this Sunday’s 30-Man Royal Rumble Match to feature 90-second entrance intervals. However, it will likely be altered based on the pay-per-view event’s remaining time.

– Alberto Del Rio appeared on Good Day Sacramento Tuesday promoting that evening’s SmackDown taping at the Sleep Train Arena. In the following video, he is set out to surprise some kids.

    That could be interesting. I’m guessing AJ and Big E will help him cheat.

    • Pozessed

      I think that they will make it so nobody can interfere. Del Rio will win then Big E comes in and destroys Del Rio with Ziggler then Ziggler cashes in to beat him. Then you have 2 mania moments. Del Rio winning and Ziggler winning.

      • morrisonfanone

        Probably. I will admit that “no one can interfere” matches are getting old.

  • cappa37

    Aj just looks so out of place. Her 15 minutes are up, time to move on.

    • fireworks Ts

      AJ is popular and is one of few divas that actually matters. Shes gonna stick around whether your ass likes it or not. Her time isnt up and wont be for some time.

      • fireworks Ts mom

        Yeah she’ll around a long as she keeps coming off as a whore. You should know what i’m talking since I raised you

      • raVen

        speaking of ass-
        i hope to see hers on tv for a long long time.

    • ahndaewoong

      She really is out of place. She’s always wanted to be wrestler, but the only thing WWE seems to be interested in is having her make out with half the roster. Time may be up for the diva’s division as a whole unless things change soon. I almost wish they would release her so she’d have the opportunity to show more of what she can do in the ring.

  • pwnez

    I think ADR vs Ziggler would be a good feud especially since ADR is now a face. I’d rather this be the WHC match instead of Orton vs Sheamus.

    • Ziggler Future WHC

      If Orton vs Sheamus is on the card for WM I know when I’m taking a bathroom break.

      • wwetnadudez

        For what, 15-20 minutes?

        • Adam Michael

          Hey, a number 2 and a few games of jetpack joyride are always good

      • Randy James Crawford

        Your an idiot Randy Orton vs Sheamus could be really good now.

        • Kevin Fydrych

          YOU’RE an idiot. Go back to grade school and learn grammar

  • siberian_skies

    I wish they’d base the RR PPV around the Royal Rumble match!

    • DigitalWWE

      Frankly, Rock/Punk build up as taken a back seat to the Rumble. It just doesn’t feel that way because it is such a big match.

      • Randy James Crawford

        That’s because it’s called The Royal Rumble PPV and not The Rock vs CM Punk PPV.

        • siberian_skies

          Very well put.

        • morrisonfanone

          Just like years ago when everything was the John Cena PPV.

  • Ziggler Future WHC

    This would be nice but I’m not holding my breath. While Dolph is on the verge of becoming champion, he’s been close for months now. Each time he’s presented with a perfect opportunity to cash in, WWE doesn’t pull the trigger.

    • Junaid Bokhari

      Even if ziggler wins the title in the coming weeks, he will definitely lose it to orton or sheamus at the chamber

  • Peer Pressure

    Del Rio vs Ziggler will steal the show. Mark my words.

    • fireworks Ts

      I will agree with Del Rio but Ziggler is a hack, nothing special at all. Just another guy you and the rest of the IWC creams themselves over. He sells, big damn deal he aint got nothing else.

      • fireworks Ts mom

        So you like that Ziggler cream to?

        • ItsProgressNow

          you sure like to make lotsa cream jokes. sounds like man-cream is on your mind alot……quite alot actually……in fact 24/7 is now known as Fireworks’ Happy Time

      • Adam Michael

        Athleticism? Technical skills? Ring awareness? Stamina? Agility?
        I think your argument is completely invalid, Ziggler is a great Wrestler and has a shitload of untapped potential

        • fireworks Ts

          Bullshit. Bullshit. Bullshit. Bullshit. Bullshit. He may have some of those things but he isn’t that great in the ring. Technical? Is that a joke? He is just as overrated as Sandow.

          • Randy James Crawford

            Your an idiot, Adam is right he has all of those things he can do moves and show off as he has done in the past, if you don’t agree with that about Dolph Ziggler or Damien Sandow you don’t know anything.

          • Nater

            You really are an idiot, go watch My Little Pony or something you little baby man..

          • Rodriquez Antonio

            super idiot….must be another Cena jock-sniffer lol

      • Rodriquez Antonio

        Yea what show are you watching…mr Ziggles is one of the best that WWE has right now…open your eyes..
        oh i forgot ppl are entitled to opinions, but hey, you are still wrong.

      • raVen

        you think stale, old, headlock, wrist lock, arm bar- del rio is better than ziggler?
        my god…this is why we don’t let women out of the kitchen

  • Lorenzo Dozier

    I like to see how this all plays out. Once Elimination Chamber is over. will have a better sense of the possible WrestleMania 29 matches.

  • ItsProgressNow

    I’d prefer to see them go at it both as heels. the crowd would be REALLY divided then

  • ADR

    ADR has become much more of a lucha libre being face with head scissors and moonsaults compared to his heel using his mma crossarmbar and chops to the legs

  • Reality

    It’d be a really good match. I hope it happens. No matter if it is for the title or not, if Ziggler wins or not.

    as I said long ago, I’d like Ziggler to win this way: he faces the
    world heavyweight champion, dominates in the end but loses in an
    upsetting roll up, cashes in right away and wins cleanly. It’ll be
    original and have good reactions from fans
