Alberto Del RioAccording to PWInsider.com, and as we reported yesterday, WWE star Christian was pulled from the 12 man tag team match at WrestleMania 28 due to lingering issues from his ankle injury.

As far as Alberto Del Rio is concerned, original plans called for Del Rio to be a part of the 12 man tag match, however, WWE officials believe the match is "below him," and are planning something more dramatic for his eventual return. The feeling is that the tag team match at WrestleMania 28 is not fitting for a past World Champion who is in line for a big push in the coming months. It's being said that a possible feud with Randy Orton is being discussed for Del Rio at this time.

Despite not appearing in the tag team match, both Christian and Del Rio are expected to be in attendance for WrestleMania and are likely to appear on camera at some point during the event.
