WWE Monday Night Raw in Miami is Jan. 25 at the AmericanAirlines Arena, and former South Florida resident Alberto Del Rio will be there.
The night before at the Royal Rumble in Orlando, Kalisto regained the U.S. title by beating Del Rio in the latest of this see-saw exchange of the belt.
It was a busy night for Del Rio on Sunday. He also participated in the 30-man Royal Rumble battle royal. He drew No.26 of 30 but was eliminated 23rd by Roman Reigns. Though, he and his League of Nations cohorts did make an impact by teaming to destroy Reigns outside the ring, pleasing WWE CEO/Chairman Vincent Kennedy McMahon. The boss was so happy that they shared a group hug at ringside, which upset a lively crowd.
Del Rio hails from a legendary wrestling family. A good family man, he starred in Mexico as a luchador and transitioned successfuly into the American sports entertainment version. A multi-time champion, he has not only wrestled all over the world but has wrestled many of the top names throughout the world.
Never miss a local story.
Del Rio wrestled with a mask, a very important symbol of Mexican Lucha culture, and has competed without it for WWE, becoming a top heel in the process and one of the company’s best overall talents in the ring and on the mic. He angers fans, eliciting many boos and jeers, which means he is doing his job exceptionally well, and he loves it.
- Big Raw in Miami
WWE Monday Night Raw in Miami (the night after the Royal Rumble) is at the AmericanAirlines Arena, home of the three-time NBA champion Miami Heat. Miami’s own Udonis Haslem, a key member of those three Heat championship teams, is a big fan of WWE.
This will be the biggest Raw in Miami, since the Raw at the AmericanAirlines Arena following WrestleMania 28 at Sun Life Stadium in 2012. The crowd at that show birthed Daniel Bryan’s “Yes” movement.
Raw, WWE’s flagship program, will be broadcast live on the USA Network. The fallout from the Royal Rumble on Raw will pack some excitement, and to be there live will be exciting.
The event starts 7:30 p.m. with the live TV show beginning at 8 p.m.
