In a match that was surprisingly given almost twenty minutes, Alberto Del Rio defeated Rob Van Dam in a Hardcore Rules match via submission to retain the World Heavyweight Championship at the WWE Battleground pay per view.
Chris Benoit shocked the wrestling world when he was able to win the Royal Rumble and earned himself a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania. He was successfully able to eliminate the Big Show to win the match.
Even though he did not work the recent European tour, merchandise sales for items featuring Sin Cara were pretty high, which helps him get back on the graces of people in management.
Even though his character is banned from WWE, a new shirt for Big Show has just been released.
There have been some speculations on the type of contract that Rob Van Dam is looking to sign with WWE. Not a lot has changed from the last time around. The former heavyweight champion wants to keep a simple schedule on a short term deal that should probably last approximately three months.
