On July 26, 2013, superstar Rob Van Dam returns to the ring to take on the world heavyweight champion, Alberto Del Rio during Syfy’s “WWE SmackDown.”
The popular cable show features a star-studded cast of WWE Superstars and Divas, according to Syfy.
According to the Bleacher Report, Van Dam, 42, and Del Rio, 36, have sustained an ongoing long-term feud, which will come to a head on tonight’s episode.
The website predicts Van Dam is a favorite for the next shot at the championship title.
Del Rio, however, has more to gain from the upcoming fight because a win would aid his reputation as a “serial main eventer,” reports the Bleacher Report.
Nevertheless, the report indicates Van Dam is currently a hot commodity on WWE, but due to his age, he may be nearing the end of his career.
“WWE SmackDown” airs Friday nights at 8 pm ET on Syfy.
