Re: They're Already Ruining Del Rio

I think the thing they botched the most was that they didn't treat his turn like a big deal. It was just "Oh, he's a face now I guess." It made Del Rio seem like he wasn't important at all. But aside from that, I think they've done a damn good job with him. Most of that probably stems from the fact that much of his act was very face-like even when he was a heel, but still, whatever it is it seems to be working. It could be a lot worse. See: Miz, The.

EDIT: I agree with you about the former heels being immediately befriended by faces thing, but that happens with everyone and is more an issue of WWEs shitty booking in general than Del Rio's booking specifically.
