Will Del Rio overcome Ziggler in a match chosen by WWE Universe?

Last week, during a special Social Media SmackDown, the WWE Universe made their voice heard, loud and clear. Via Twitter, the fans selected Dolph Ziggler — ahead of United States Antonio Cesaro and Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett — to face World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio in an explosive matchup tonight. But is Del Rio biting off more than he can chew?

With things already heating up between the reigning titleholder and his dangerous No. 1 contender, Jack Swagger, on The Road to WrestleMania, Del Rio could find himself in over his head against the fans’ choice.

Not only is The Showoff one of WWE’s most athletic and confident competitors — with Big E Langston and the unpredictable AJ Lee in his corner — but he also still holds the Money in the Bank contract, which guarantees him a title match against Del Rio at a time of his choosing. So could Del Rio, in effect, be handing Ziggler the perfect situation to cash in that opportunity?
