Re: World Heavyweight Championship *SPOILER*

I can't believe WWE persisted with Del Rio as a heel for so long. The guy is a natural face. He got more of a reaction in that opening segment alone than in the entire rest of his WWE career combined.

Re: World Heavyweight Championship *SPOILER*

Never been too high on Del Rio. Overpushed in his first full calender year with WWE. Despite getting no reaction. But I think he is proving he can be an effective babyface. The performance tonight went a long way in building him and showing his resilience and toughness. If Ziggler was to cash in on Del Rio at Elimination Chamber to set up a Wrestlemania match I would be all for it.

I marked out when Del Rio won. Excellent match. Great commentary and perfectly booked.

Re: World Heavyweight Championship *SPOILER*

I'm LOVING Del Rio as a face man. I completely despised the idea of a face turn for him at first, but he was great tonight on SmackDown. I'm lovin' it.

As long as Del Rio doesn't pull up the cheesy jokes like Sheamus and Cena did, he'll make an awesome face. Fully support the turn

Re: World Heavyweight Championship *SPOILER*

Ok I have words now.

I like Del Rio, even if he isn't very over, and I think he'll be able to play a great face. But I also think this abrupt and so far half-assed face turn thrown another title reign isn't going to do much for him. WWE just keeps tossing unover/not-ready guys at the title in the hopes that one sticks. I feel like they're just impatient and can't be bothered to push anyone the old fashioned way. Instead of building up to this and making his win a huge moment it looks like they're just tossing Del Rio out there and hoping he won't sink again. Hopefully things work out differently for him this time, but I still sort of wish they had built up and made this as a big moment for him.

Re: World Heavyweight Championship *SPOILER*

I like how both World titles changed hands with an ADR match, and they were over a year apart.

th sad truith that al of u cant ceem to grrasp is dat wrestlig is getig les poplar each day and no bodde caires abot it

vinse is senile at this poiint and th growth of tna has pleateuaed nd roh has nevr bin mor than his a crapy cult

Re: World Heavyweight Championship *SPOILER*

Very Good Match.

And nice emotion and celebration by ADR at the end. Well deserved. And now he is much more tolerable and likeable than his pathetic heel run

Re: World Heavyweight Championship *SPOILER*

Del Rio is now one of my favorites. Turning him face was a great move.
