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.
Yeah this is true. All the 'latino hero' comments helped a little maybe, but they were probably because next week's shows are in Texas. That's where he can get a big pop from Mexican fans. Besides, there's such a thing as being awesome w/o being as good as Punk or Cena (and I personally think he's better than Cena).
