According to sources, the reason WWE had Alberto Del Rio score two clean victories in a row over Big E. on television is because they are planning on doing a Del Rio vs. Big E. singles program for the WWE Intercontinental Championship after WrestleMania XXX.

As of right now, the plan is for the two to have the title match at the upcoming WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view, which takes place on May 4th at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
