Original WWE Title Plans For Alberto Del Rio, New Stable To Be Formed?

  • Share

The latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that when Alberto Del Rio won the WWE Championship at SummerSlam after cashing in the Money in the Bank briefcase, long-term WWE storyline plans called for him to drop the title back to CM Punk at the Survivor Series, which is what happened. Del Rio dropping the WWE title to John Cena at Night of Champions and then recapturing it a month later at Hell in a Cell was somewhat of an “on the fly” decision in hopes of spiking dwindling television ratings.

With Primo, Hunico and Epico recently aligning themselves together on SmackDown, there are plans to add Rosa Mendes to the new stable. Following the recent breakup of Awesome Truth and the Wellness violation of tag team champion Evan Bourne, Hunico and Epico are being groomed for a run with the WWE tag team titles.
