Alberto Del Rio’s fans (all 12 of them) better enjoy his WWE title match at Tables, Ladders and Chairs, because it will be his last. With Del Rio receiving little heat as WWE Champion the first time around, it’s time for the bookers to go in a different direction with the belt.
Look for CM Punk to retain the WWE title and go on an extended run with the belt. After that, there are a number of Superstars who will get a shot at the title, none of whom are named Alberto Del Rio.
John Cena and the Miz will probably see title runs in 2012, as will rising star Dolph Ziggler and possibly even the Rock at WrestleMania. Hey, crazier things have happened.
If Del Rio wants another run as champion, he may be better off switching over to SmackDown in the near future and capturing the World Heavyweight Championship, because given how badly his run as WWE champ went, he’ll never have another shot at that belt.
