The show from Miami will air this Friday.

The Mexican Aristocrat heroically battled The World’s Largest Athlete in an absolutely brutal showdown, literally taking The World’s Largest Athlete to his limit en route to an historic victory. Del Rio’s title triumph stands as his first World Heavyweight Championship and his third World Title overall. His victory also shows, once again, that anything can happen on SmackDown at any time! ___________________________________________________________ Sunny and boyfriend turn things around: Original WWE Diva Tammy “Sunny” Sytch is now engaged to her Indy wrestler boyfriend Damien Darling, despite months of meltdowns and legal problems. Darling was forced to take out a retraining order on Sytch after she repeatedly became drunk and violent towards him. She was arrested at least 4 times (3 within one week) and was forced to return to rehab last year. Although the WWE Hall of Famer alleged Darling had cheated on her, they appear to have worked out their problems and now wish to get married. ___________________________________________________________ Sarita gone from TNA roster page: TNA Knockout Sarita has been removed from the ImpactWrestling.com roster page, hinting that she may be gone from the company. The Hispanic star hasn’t been used by TNA since April.
