I have a feeling that Del Rio is going to be shoved down our throats even more now. They are really persistent to get him over when he's only going little to no reaction despite now being one of the top faces on Smackdown. Also we don't need another paper reign by him, if they are going to give him the title, give it when he can be put in some good feuds and hold it for a while, because I highly doubt he will hold it to Wrestlemania.
Having seen the match, I have to say ADR is working as a face. He never really clicked as a heel, despite having all the characteristics. This, on the other hand, seems to fit just right. I hope he can run with it.

The company must have really thought Sin Cara was going to be a face superstar when Sin Cara...
Didn't have a "WWE Look"
Didn't work the WWE style well so had in ring problems galore. ADR worked in FCW and did dark matches for about a year (June 2009 to June 2010)
THIS COMPANY LOVES MIC WORKERS...SIN CARA CAN'T EVEN SPEAK ENGLISH! Sin Cara doesn't even speak period.
WWE worries about top guys getting injured and doesn't want them doing lots of hard moves and high risk actions. Sin Cara works a much more luchador style and if they wanted to see an example of that who has hip, back and especially knee injuries galore, they had to look no further than a man already on their roster for a decade, Rey Mysterio.
Furthermore, luchador guys sometimes wind up abusing amphetamines, painkillers, HGH and steroids not to get the big WWE physique but just to have the energy to work that style and recover from all the back, hip and knee injuries that the style can cause. Again, see Rey Mysterio. You would have to think that a guy like Sin Cara would be a known risk for amphetamine, painkiller and recovery PED abuse.
hopefully he doesn't get treated like Christian (still mad about that) and give him like a 2days/1-2week reign. I don't think they will with Vince actually liking ADR. Till Elimination Chamber at least
i don't get it at all. he's horrible as a face and this just came out of nowhere. it's like he's getting rewarded for telling Vince off in his office, but not based on anything he's done in the ring or in promos.
