Alberto Del Rio Misses House Show After Reportedly Suffering Concussion, PPV Match In Jeopardy

Sources: PWInsider.com, F4WOnline

Alberto Del Rio did not appear as scheduled for Saturday's SmackDown live event in Salisbury, Maryland, which would confirm reports that he suffered a concussion during last Tuesday's SmackDown taping in Columbia, South Carolina. WWE officials brainstormed alternative scenarios Friday in case Del Rio is unable to wrestle Sheamus at No Way Out on June 17.

Looking to get under the skin of the World Heavyweight Champion, Del Rio brought out Ricardo Rodriguez on this week's episode of SmackDown to make light of the Irish brawler by mimicking his distinctive red hair, outfit and gestures. The real Sheamus then appeared, where the fight would eventually spread to the steel stage. The Celtic Warrior slammed Del Rio's head against the metal WWE logo, leading to his possible concussion. You can check out the spot in the video below at the 2:05 mark.

At Saturday's house show, Sheamus defended his strap against the winner of a match pitting Kane against The Great Khali.
