Ricardo Rodriguez returned to WWE on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw from the Resch Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The storyline excuse is that he was out due to a “severe injury” after being put through a table by Dolph Ziggler.
In reality, Rodriguez was out due to his first violation of the WWE Wellness Policy. I gave more details in Monday’s installment of Ask WNW.
After Del Rio’s match with Rob Van Dam, Del Rio assaulted Rodriguez. The following is from Kendra Bunyon’s Raw results:
RVD celebrates on the ramp as Ricardo in to check on ADR. ADR kicks Ricardo in the side of the head, beats on him, then grabs the bucket and swings it overhand onto Ricardo over and over. Finally ADR throws Ricardo out of the ring with a really sick thud! Outside Ricardo’s head is wedged behind the stairs and ADR hits a sick drop kick onto the side of the stairs. Back into the ring ADR grabs his belt and poses in the corner. Ricardo doesn’t move a muscle outside the ring. Video recap of the attack on Ricardo!
