Had Del Rio kept the mask?

Before coming to WWE, I'm sure some people know that Del Rio did wrestle/fight while wearing a mask, but when signed to WWE, they made him get rid of it.

Had he kept the mask, do you think there'd be much difference in Del Rios character/fans overall interest in him?

This isn't a Del Rio bash thread. While this site might be surprised,a thread being made on a superstar in WWE DOESN'T have to result in always bashing whoever the thread is about.

One of his masks:

Another one he wore:

Well he would be Dos Caras Jr. probably with the booking they planned on Sin Cara, but he could cut promos unlike him and not be a disaster in the ring and getting injured so much, problem with this... No Ricardo Rodriguez.

Re: Had Del Rio kept the mask?

hmm they could have given the sin cara idea to del rio and given ricardo to sin cara ...which all in all might have been a way better idea...ric could talk for sin and whenhes hurt ric could be put in dangerous matches to keep sin on tv while keeping him out to get healthy, and del rio would have gotten over better as a face and then cut promos like clay above me said

Re: Had Del Rio kept the mask?

i think he will do better without the mask. Because if he wore it he joins the 9/10 of other mexican wrestlers to wear a mask, which can bring on typecasting issues. In the Long run best he didnt wear it. IMO
