Default Is Del Rio the next "hardcore" star?

I have noticed that throughout his tenre in the WWE he has been predominatly featured (as well as having a good record) in many sort of "hardcore" matches such as last man standing, hell in a cell, and from what I say today, maybe a parking lot brawl? I know you may think that doesn't qualify as hardcore ( which is why I put it in quotes) and that there are others that have also been in these matches and are not qualified as such. Del Rio could benefit from being someone who deals specifically with no holds.barred type matches. I know what you are thinking, that there is no such thing as hardcore in this PG era, and while there isn't blood there still can be a match put together in that fashion. What I am trying to say is I know he's not the next ECW type guy, but will he be the one to take an extra hit?

ADR has performed good in those type of matches, ADR vs Cena was good, ADR vs Christian TLC match at Xtreme Rules was Awsome, had a great match with big show LMS, would love to see him in a street fight

If anybody fits that role, it's Cena. He does tons of gimmick matches and that's what he works best in.

Del Rio is such a good pure wrestler that I'd prefer he sticks with that. Not to say he shouldn't do gimmick matches but I don't want to see him labeled as a gimmick match performer like Triple H, that's a waste of his technical talent.

What was the reason that the people were supposed to get behind him, other than the company just saying "phht, well, he's...in school".

Totally agree. Let's break down the facts here.

A) ADR is a great fucking wrestler

B) ADR is also great in gimmick matches because...well see point A)

Save the "hardcore" gimmicks for guys who need them. Y'know, the Miz's, the Ambroses, the Barrett's. Guys who might be able to carry a feud from a promo perspective but fail in the "keeping them interested when they step into the ring".

Anyone else think the segment with ADR and Big Show out in the lot was awkward as hell?

I actually thought it was good. It looked pretty real and del rio sold it really well. It could of been better though but for del rio and big show it went surprisingly well.

He's not hardcore per se, but this guy will take crazy bumps to sell a match. My favorite bump of his was at the 2010 TLC where he fell from the ladder in the ring to the tables on the outside. It looked like he died that night.
