WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio was not at RAW last night (or at WWE’s weekend live events) due to issues with his work visa that have prevented him from entering the United States.

Del Rio had been scheduled to wrestle Sin Cara in a non-title match at tonight’s Super SmackDown special, but that match will likely not happen.

WWE had a video package ready to go on RAW to hype Del Rio’s match with Sin Cara, but decided against airing the footage due to this issue.

Del Rio’s name was also removed from an updated press release sent out on Tuesday hyping the live SmackDown special.

Del Rio is still being advertised for this weekend’s live events, so WWE is confident the matter will be resolved this week.
