Alberto Del Rio Wins WWE’s World Heavyweight Title: Video & Reactions

WWE superstar Alberto Del Rio defeated the Big Show in a Last Man Standing match on Friday’s episode of WWE SmackDown to capture the World Heavyweight championship. The match was taped on Tuesday night from Miami, Florida and shows that WWE is going full force with his push as a babyface Latin hero.

Del Rio tweeted the following on Friday night after his title victory aired on SmackDown:

Former WWE superstar and Edge congratulated his former rival on his win, tweeting:
