World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio def. R-Truth

With his title rematch against RVD at WWE Battleground looming, World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio ultimately overcame R-Truth with a vicious mule kick on SmackDown.

But a “W” wasn’t enough for the titleholder, as Del Rio snapped in his dreaded Cross Armbreaker after the bell, prompting RVD to sprint to the ring to save The Rapping Superstar. Brandishing a chair, Van Dam hit a running skateboard of Extreme retribution on the Mexican Champion!

RVD may have gotten some payback for Del Rio’s Raw attack, but who will come out on top at WWE Battleground on Sunday, Oct. 6?

Battleground Hardcore Rules Match is deemed “best for business”

By decree of COO Triple H and SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero, the World Title Match between RVD and Alberto Del Rio at WWE Battleground will be contested under Battleground Hardcore Rules.
