It was announced on SmackDown this week by Vickie Guerrero that Ricardo Rodriguez will not be allowed in the corner of Rob Van Dam for his championship match with Alberto Del Rio at the event. Rodriguez has been with RVD for the past month since Del Rio attacked him on WWE RAW. After Rodriguez lost to Del Rio on SmackDown, he will not be allowed to be in RVD's corner as a result. You can check out Rodriguez's tweet on the subject below:

Im sorry guys. I really tried against Del Rio but came up on the losing end tonight on Smackdown. Guess I won't be at #NOC :(
