WWE Champion John Cena to face World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio tonight on Raw
WWE’s two most prestigious championships will collide tonight on Raw when WWE Champion John Cena battles World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio in the main event of tonight’s show.
The marquee bout was announced via Twitter by Raw Managing Supervisor Vickie Guerrero, who has attempted to impress the McMahon-Helmsley family of late with her performance as Raw’s de facto leader. In this case, she has chosen her main event wisely.

To date, Champion vs. Champion Matches are the rarest and most prestigious of bouts, reserved only for the most special of occasions. Recently, CM Punk and Sheamus (then the WWE and World Champion, respectively) met in a classic bout on the maiden episode of WWE Main Event. With two competitors well-versed in each other’s skills and currently atop the tallest pedestals in WWE, tonight’s bout between Cena and Del Rio will only add to the glorious history of both championships, whatever the result may be.
Tune in tonight at 8/7 CT on USA Network to see the epic bout unfold!
