Why Del Rio? He's a horrible babyface. If it was Orton then I would understand since, even though I don't like him, he is very popular. Also, they could also turn Orton heel with the title and have him feud with Sheamus or Ryback. But seriously, why Del Rio?

Congrats to Del Rio in the mean time, always wanted him to get a world title reign as I felt the WWE title on somebody like him looked straight up goofy.
If it is Ziggler v Ryback for WM, I wouldn't be surprised if they made Ziggles the Daniel Bryan of this year.
