WWE announced today that United States Champion Santino Marella had challenged Ricardo Rodriguez to a Tuxedo Match that has been accepted for Sunday’s WWE No Way Out pay-per-view.
The match will be non-title bout and WWE.com announced the match like this;
“Described by Marella as “one of the most electrifying matches in sports-entertainment,” Tuxedo Matches require both competitors to enter the fray in full penguin suits. The objective is to strip the other man of his outfit. For a rivalry that has featured plenty of laughs and more than a tinge of humiliation, the Tuxedo Match is a wholly appropriate venue for Marella and Rodriguez to settle the score”.
So the match is basically the male wrestling version of an Evening Gown Match. It will of course be the comedy entertainment bout of the night and hopefully WWE will have a place for Howard Finkel, in a signature tuxedo, to either referee or be the special guest announcer for the match.
The final card for Sunday’s WWE No Way Out is below;
