Latino crowd? Miami isn't just a Latino crowd, they're a Cuban crowd, Del Rio is Mexican, and Cubans don't give two shits about Mexicans. Del Rio didn't even get a pop in Mexico, so now that he gets one in Miami, it's because he's Latino? You're reaching here. Sticking Del Rio in a face role isn't just a random change, seeing as how he's spent most of his career as a successful face.
