4. The end of Del Rio’s ride?

World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio doesn't think much of Ricardo Rodriguez or Rob Van Dam.

Rob Van Dam has enjoyed a successful resurgence in WWE with more wins than losses. As far as returns go, it’s been a good one for the entertaining highflier. Along the way, World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio’s former ally, Ricardo Rodriguez, defected and joined RVD’s corner. The time seems right for RVD to capitalize and capture his first World Heavyweight Title. Just how hard is Del Rio willing to fight to keep what is his at Night of Champions?
