Breaking Spoilers: New World Heavyweight Champion Crowned at Smackdown Tapings
**Spoiler warning: don't read this post if you want to be surprised**
With Del Rio recently turning face and Ricardo Rodriguez being used to help get him over as a good guy, defeating the Big Show will definitely propel Alberto back to a top spot in the company. This title change really comes out of the blue, since it seemed Big Show was in the midst of a long reign that would go until at least WrestleMania. All this could be to set up a rematch at The Royal Rumble that would see Show regain the title after claiming he wasn't actually pinned or submitted in the Last Man Standing match. There was some early buzz that Ryback would take on Show at WrestleMania, but this title change may turn things more toward an Alberto vs. Dolph Ziggler title match at 'Mania.
Things are heating up in WWE right now, and they are making an effort to bring back some "must see TV" since the ratings have been low the past few months. Alberto's title win will air this Friday on Smackdown, along with The Rock's first appearance on the show in 10 years.
