Finally they get it right. ADR is a natural face, and should stay like that for a very long while. He did the face comeback against all odds better than Cena ever done. Why they didnt debut him like this from the beginning is beyond me.

Would it hurt to give him a mid-card title run? I like Del Rio but it seems like he is always winning titles where it doesn't make much sense. He is like the transitional champion of champions. He lost to CM Punk in less than 2 months and will probably lose to Dolph Ziggler in less than a month. Him winning World titles just doesn't do much anymore since he is already a 3 time World Champion. WWE has this tendency to think the mid-card titles are beneath Del Rio, but I think a mid-card run would be good for him. Have Del Rio become IC or US champion, and since Vince loves the guy then perhaps he could make the IC title or US title seem more important. Then have him compete for a Wold title after he has a good mid-card title reign. It could help establish his baby-face turn a lot more and when he competes for a World title and wins it, it would mean a lot more IMO.

His gimmick when he debuted was actually really good IMO. The problem was that WWE didn't know how to really take his rich legacy gimmick to the next level. They literally thought that him having nice expensive luxury cars is enough for his character but he needed more.

Sorry but it just doesn't work like that, so far he has proved nothing and hasn't even really changed his character much at all and we are supposed to suddenly believe he is a babyface? I'm not a hater, I will give him his chance to show me he is a top quality babyface performer and if he improves then I will give the guy all the credit in the world. So far all Del Rio has shown me that he is a top in ring performer who is very one dimensional and actually quite bad on the mic and couldn't get any heel heat despite getting a major push, remember its easier to get people to hate you than to like you. If he succeeds in all of this then I will happily eat humble pie and hold my hands up. Tbh I would love for him to prove my wrong, don't see it happening personally though.
Again dude every time you come with your ''facts'' there are no more than opinions, ADR is fucking big on Mexico a lot more than Khali is on the India of course a lot of you ignore all the years he was a face here, but that's the reason why Vince wanted him and he pushes him nonstop no matter if the American crowds doesn't give a fuck for him, and in a way I agree with you, his gimmick and direction being somewhat odd for a babyface and I fear they gonna ruin him like Sheamus making him do the same babyface antics current WWE bookers like.

What was that? xD some kind of payback? I always was a honest hater of Sheamus I never hide that he could get released and I would mark for that , since he debuted I never liked him funny thing hes more bearable to me as a face than when he was heel, but still

remember its easier to get people to hate you than to like you.

Who say that? Jericho?, I hate how everyone take that stupid quote like some kind of universal truth.

It's a good idea if you think about it. Maybe they figured more people would be watching SD because of The Rock, lets make it seem like anything could happen on the show. It was the perfect storm for them, they likely had more viewers tuning in, a hot crowd that's also a large Latin community and a great match.

The thing is when you see Del Rio talking in interviews he just screams mister nice guy... He has so much flair , ladies gonna dig him and the guys gonna dig him cause he's just badass in the ring. I didn't like his heel turn. But i'm giving him a shot as a face and wait a little until i make my judgement on him.

Ricardo is a huge asset for him. Looking forward to it and yeah they are prolly setting it up for Ziggler sine it's WM season and Cena is going to feud with Rockyboy. And since Ziggler is a heel and has Mitb briefcase he needs to cash in on a face. Promotion-wise it was a good move from the creative to turn him face... Sin Cara can't wrestle for shit even when his life depends on it. And Mysterio needs more time of than he wrestles. So yeah , he's the logical choice to turn.

What annoys me most? His ability has way less to do with this belt than his skin color. It's not good EITHER way, imo. But yes, he plays face well to a point.

Yea I am liking his face character more too. Watching him getting that world title was awesome. Nice to see someone with that belt who actually is good in the ring. Watched this episode for Rock only, but I guess I will see what happens next week with ADR.
