Can Del Rio destroy Charisma itself?

Apparently battling it out in a tooth-and-nail, World Heavyweight Title slugfest at SummerSlam just wasn’t enough. That’s because titleholder Alberto Del Rio and Christian are set to engage in another epic struggle tonight!

After Del Rio clearly injured Captain Charisma’s shoulder in their pay-per-view match – which played a key part in Christian’s defeat – it stands to reason that this return confrontation may be a bit premature.

On the other hand, Del Rio has his problems, too. His former personal ring announcer, Ricardo Rodriguez, made it apparent on Raw that he has now alignined himself with Rob Van Dam. And it will be interesting to see if this new alliance will also have any impact on the outcome of the clash.
