WWE Royal Rumble 2013: Alberto Del Rio vs Big Show official for world heavyweight title

It's official! Alberto Del Rio vs. Big Show for the world heavyweight championship is now set for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view on Sun., Jan. 27, 2013, in Phoenix, Arizona.

It's official!

Alberto Del Rio will defend his newly won world heavyweight championship against Big Show at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view (PPV) on Sun., Jan. 27, 2013, at the US Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona.

Show invoked his rematch clause on tonight's 20th Anniversary episode of Monday Night Raw in the opening segment of the evening. The set up was simple. Show complained about the nature of his losing the title being unfair, Del Rio told him to do something about it, and Show said he wants his rematch at the Rumble PPV.

So they can steal the show over the Rumble match itself and CM Punk vs. The Rock. That's a tall task but they did have one hell of a Last Man Standing match on SmackDown last week.
