If Paramount Pictures is searching for the perfect new summer blockbuster, they may want to take a look at "The Curious Case of Alberto Del Rio. " After failing to defeat Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Championship at Money in the Bank, many believed -- and several hoped -- Del Rio's time in the title picture had come to a close. Randy Orton was returning from injury, bringing back another legitimate main event star and filling a void at the top of the card. But WWE showed it wasn't quite done with the Del Rio experiment yet. Del Rio defeated Rey Mysterio soundly, earned a rematch for the world title and declared he was above the competition and wouldn't compete until his next world title match at SummerSlam.

Marvin Lewis beat Jack Del Rio to a head coaching job in the NFL, but only by a day. In what loosely could be called the whims of ownership, it was two years after his Ravens defense ravaged the rest of the league that Lewis got a team to call his own. Whether the Cincinnati Bengals prove to be a team worth having is another matter. Del Rio, linebackers coach under Lewis on that great Ravens defense, agreed to become coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday, about 24 hours after Lewis worked out his deal with Cincinnati.

Last night's WWE Payback pay-per-view had a little bit of everything. First, there were title changes. Dolph Ziggler returned from a concussion only to lose to Alberto Del Rio in an entertaining match that was eerily similar to Steve Austin vs. Bret Hart at WrestleMania 13 (in the same AllState Arena, then known as the Rosemont Horizon). Dolph (the villain) was cheered throughout the match, while Del Rio (the hero) was vilified by the consistently loud Chicago audience. After winning the gold, Del Rio cut an eyebrow raising promo, further perpetuating his likely turn.

If Ravens defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis leaves for a head coaching job, coach Brian Billick would promote linebackers coach Jack Del Rio to take charge of the NFL's premier defense. "We have a structure in place, and Jack is the guy," Billick said. "We'll elevate Jack if that comes." Del Rio, 37, who is in his second year with the Ravens, was the New Orleans Saints' linebackers coach in 1998 and their assistant strength and conditioning coach in 1997. An 11-year veteran linebacker in the NFL, Del Rio starred for the Saints, Kansas City Chiefs, Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings from 1985 to '94.

One coach deems Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio's familiarity with the Ravens an advantage. The other thinks its negligible. Del Rio was the linebackers coach for the Ravens the past four years. He left for the Panthers' job under new coach John Fox soon after the Ravens' season ended, and Fox implied yesterday having Del Rio could be beneficial strategically. Ravens coach Brian Billick was not so sure. "It's a fun challenge to play someone that was part of your team and your family for a while," Billick said.

On the verge of losing one of their top front office members in Phil Savage, the Ravens are preparing for movement in their coaching staff, too. Ravens coach Brian Billick confirmed yesterday that newly hired Jacksonville coach Jack Del Rio has requested permission to talk to two coaches about becoming the Jaguars' defensive coordinator and anticipated hearing from Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis for the same reason. But Billick indicated he likely would only allow one coach to leave his 16-man staff.

Marvin Lewis is staying put, and Jack Del Rio is now going to Carolina. The Carolina Panthers named New York Giants defensive coordinator John Fox as their new head coach yesterday, bypassing Lewis, the Ravens' defensive coordinator. In an unusual twist, Fox is taking Del Rio, the Ravens' linebackers coach for the past three years, as his defensive coordinator. For Lewis, 43, it was the second time in 11 months that he was a finalist for a head coaching position, only to be turned away at the end. "I'm disappointed," Lewis said, "but I have to be a better coach, I guess."

Hard-core Ravens fans and HBO viewers know what Kenny Jackson did on his big night out during training camp. He gave an unequivocal thumbs-up to Planet of the Apes, even if it wasn't the most memorable film he has seen this month. Jackson is the unusual rookie free agent whose quest to join the Super Bowl champions was developed into one of the subplots on Hard Knocks, the HBO chronicle of the Ravens' preseason. He's a chiseled 6 feet 2, 253 pounds, and there are plenty of rough edges to his game.

The card for next month's No Way Out pay-per-view continued to take shape after Friday night's episode of Smackdown, but recent events have parts of the show left with question marks. Alberto Del Rio defeated Randy Orton and Kane in a triple threat match to be crowned the No. 1 contender to the Sheamus' World Heavyweight Championship. But it is the other two participants in that match that are at the center of the most interesting scenarios leading into the next PPV event.

The weeks following WrestleMania have traditionally been a time when WWE calls up talent from developmental, giving them a chance on the main roster. This year has proven to be no different, though not all of this week's debuts were superstars new to the main brands. Lord Tensai , a returning A-Train with a new gimmick, returned on Raw, while former Nexus member Skip Sheffield made his comeback on Smackdown, repackaged as Ryback . Damien Sandow , who has been talked about as a standout in WWE's developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling, also made his debut, albeit in the form of a pre-recorded promo.

From 1999 to 2001, inside linebacker Ray Lewis and linebackers coach Jack Del Rio worked in tandem, eventually assisting the Ravens to their first and only Super Bowl title in 2000. On Monday night, the duo will meet again but on opposing sidelines - Lewis playing his 16 th season for the Ravens and Del Rio in his ninth year as the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars. “Jack was always just a true man's man, a true professional, and I think it truly comes from his experience of playing in the game himself,” Lewis said Wednesday.

Ravens director of college scouting Phil Savage will remain with the team after failing to reach an agreement to become the Jacksonville Jaguars' general manager. In a surprising reversal of what seemed to be a done deal, Savage left Jacksonville last night and drove to his home in Alabama after talks broke down with Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver earlier in the day. Savage and Weaver had a 45-minute meeting but could not agree on Savage's salary. Jacksonville reportedly is paying new coach Jack Del Rio, who received a strong recommendation from Savage, $1.3 million a season for the next five years, but does not want to pay that much for a general manager.

Eleven months ago, the Jacksonville Jaguars' season ended with a loss to the New England Patriots in an AFC divisional playoff game, but prospects of another successful season - and maybe even a berth in the Super Bowl -weren't far-fetched. That memory seems eons ago now. The Jaguars are limping to the new year with one win in their past six games and a 5-10 record. A victory against the Ravens on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium might be a salve for a team frustrated by the season's disappointments.
