Rob Van Dam def. World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio

Looks like Ricardo Rodriguez’s big client switch is starting to pay dividends. One week after officially leaving Alberto Del Rio’s services in favor of Rob Van Dam’s, Ricardo’s new jefe pulled off a big win against The Essence of Excellence and punched his ticket to Night of Champions in the process. Despite the fact that Van Dam's had the champion's number of late, the newly solo Del Rio wasn’t exactly shaking in his boots against Mr. Monday Night, matching the former WWE Champion shot for shot and even aping Van Dam’s famous taunt when the opportunity suited him.

Not bad. But can he do it again in three weeks?
