WWE Royal Rumble News: Alberto Del Rio Wins, Mysterio Injured, Dark Match

  • Share

Alberto Del Rio earned a shot at a world title in the main event of WrestleMania 27 after winning the WWE Royal Rumble tonight in Boston.

Prior to last night’s pay-per-view, the dark match tonight saw R-Truth defeat Curt Hawkins. During the actual show, Eve Torres became the new WWE Divas Champion tonight after winning a Fatal 4 Way against Natalya, Layla and Michelle McCool. The RAW General Manager changed the match from LayCool vs. Natalya to the 4 Way. By the way, WWE decided to air the two World Title Matches at the beginning of the show and then aired the Divas Title Match after them, which made for a rather awkward transition.

Rey Mysterio is said to be working through a rotator cuff injury right now. The injury happened on WWE’s recent overseas tour. Mysterio is hoping to avoid surgery by going through therapy. Mysterio handpicked Cody Rhodes to work their current feud and current plans calls for them having a match at WrestleMania 27.
