Will Del Rio bare his hardcore teeth against Ziggler?

There are many that feel that the extreme nature of the World Title Battleground Hardcore Match taking place this Sunday favors the ECW Original No. 1 Contender, RVD. And it’s this very notion that World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio will certainly be looking to crush on the blue brand tonight when he takes on Dolph Ziggler.

It’s ironic, then, that the Mexican titleholder must prove his ruthlessness against the likes of The Showoff. After all, it was back at WWE Payback that Del Rio reclaimed the gold from Ziggler, capitalizing on his opponent’s recent concussion with an absolutely unrelenting assault.

However, Dolph as prepares for his own WWE Battleground showdown against Mr. Money in the Bank, Damien Sandow, Del Rio’s task could quickly Zig Zag out of control.
