BREAKING NEWS!

ALBERTO DEL RIO WILL FACE FORMER WWC UNIVERSAL CHAMPION RAY GONZALEZ IN PUERTO RICO

World Wrestling Council announced this weekend on its television programming that WWE United States Champion Alberto Del Rio will face WWC Superstar Ray Gonzalez on WWC’s final event of the year “Lockout”.

The match was set after Del Rio visited Shawn Michael’s Texas Wrestling Academy in San Antonio to meet Ray Gonzalez Jr, Ray Gonzalez’ son, who was there taking some wrestling classes. Ray started his wrestling carrer earlier this year in WWC. Del Rio slapped and insulted Gonzalez Jr. and his father, sending a message that they will face each other.

Gonzalez vs. Del Rio will take place on December 5th in the historic Ruben Rodriguez Colisseum in Bayamon, Puerto Rico.

Joel will be on WrestleZone Daily’s 100th Episode this Wednesday at 12:15 pm EST to talk further about this developing story.
