Alberto Del Rio suspended from this week’s SmackDown
General Manager Booker T made a startling announcement Tuesday evening that he is preventing the World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio from being part of this week’s SmackDown.
“Following the incidents last Friday on SmackDown as well as this week on Raw,” Booker told WWE.com in no uncertain terms, “it is my duty as GM to suspend Alberto Del Rio. He will not be in action this Friday night and will not be in the building.”
The offending incidents in question involved the Mexican Superstar attacking Big Show with a steel pipe as the giant was coming out of his bus last Friday ( WATCH | PHOTOS) and then in his hotel room on Monday night. ( WATCH)
While there is no question these latest developments will make a profound impression on this week’s edition of the blue brand, one has wonder how it will affect the upcoming World Title Match between Del Rio and The World’s Largest No. 1 contender at Elimination Chamber. ( MATCH PREVIEW)
