WWE Smackdown Preview: Who Will Become No. 1 Contender for Edge's World Title

As we head into Tuesday's special edition of Smackdown, every member of the IWC has one question on their mind. Who will be Edge's challenger at the Royal Rumble?

Now I cannot guarantee a no. 1 contender's match tonight on Smackdown, but would like to think they want to get the ball rolling on who Edge's opponent will be.

If I were booking the contender match this evening, I think I would make it a Fatal Four way between Kane, Kofi Kingston, Rey Mysterio and Alberto Del Rio.

You would get two faces and two heels, all bringing something different into the match.

In the end, I think Edge needs to face someone who will antagonize him and try to become a World Heavyweight champ for the first time and that my friends would be Alberto Del Rio.

They already gave us a glimpse of how they would interact before the TLC match and that could be just the beginning.

There are some who think Del Rio is getting a push too early and I can see where they are coming from. He hasn't been around long and has only had one main feud thus far.

If you watch wrestling enough, then you can see that Alberto has something in the making of a great superstar who will be around for a very long time.

His mannerisms are already great, his mic work is above average, and you cannot doubt the in-ring work he brings to the table as well. Not only that, but I can see him and Edge putting together a nice feud heading into the Royal Rumble.

This matchup would also be something fresh for the WWE Universe's followers, seeing how these two have never been involved with each other.

Edge's character would also be great to help elevate Del Rio's because of the savvy veteran we all know he is. Edge knows his time is starting to run short, so by helping ADR learn his chops in a meaningful feud will only help him get over with those who follow wrestling.

This is to hoping for an Edge vs. Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Championship!
