Ryback def. Alberto Del Rio by disqualification (PHOTOS | WATCH)

Although WWE was in Norfolk to honor America’s brave men and women, Alberto Del Rio wanted to take the opportunity to celebrate the birthday of his personal ring announcer, Ricardo Rodriguez. Before The Mexican Aristocrat could finish his rendition of “Happy Birthday” in Spanish, Ryback made his way to the ring — ready to get their match underway.
During the battle, Ryback used his raw power to gain an edge against his experienced and cunning opponent. However, an assist from Rodriguez allowed Del Rio the opportunity to nearly defeat the monstrous competitor.

Alas, the hungry Superstar’s strength and tenacity proved to be too much, and as he prepared to take down The Mexican Aristocrat with the Meathook clothesline, Rodriguez jumped on Ryback, ending the contest by disqualification. After the match ended, Rodriguez paid for his interference as he and Del Rio were left Shell Shocked.
