That's because his moveset IS that of a face. This is what the problem was and why i believe he had alot of haters. Wwe wanted him to be this rich arrogant character but del rio`s style isn't made for a heel. You can't have a heel doing flips and flashy shit because that's crowd pleasing. So what you do when in essence your identity has been taken from you. A blind man can see that del rio is literally having fun in the ring now. He likes smiling and getting the crowd worked up. He couldn't do that as a heel. He just didn't know how to be bad. I hope it continues for him for the next few years he's around. I think he is amazing always have.
