Del Rio Resolves Visa Situation, WWE Highlights Former WCW Star



– After missing last week’s WWE live events and this week’s television tapings, Alberto Del Rio’s work visa situation was resolved in time for this weekend’s Raw brand house shows in Puerto Rico. He appeared at Friday’s show in San Juan and defended the WWE Championship twice.

Del Rio beat CM Punk before losing to John Cena in the main event via disqualification. Punk appeared after the match to fend off a chair-wielding Ricardo Rodriguez. Cena then raised Punk’s hand and left. Punk stayed in the ring and posed with the Puerto Rican flag.

– WWE developmental wrestler Percy Watson appeared at Friday’s Raw live event in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He lost to Jack Swagger in the third match of the night.

– The official WWE website has posted a photo gallery of former WCW Hardcore Champion Norman Smiley. He is currently signed to WWE as a trainer and an on–air authority figure for Florida Championship Wrestling. He worked several non-televised matches for WWE following their acquisition of WCW in 2001, but was never hired as a talent.
