I am so confused that this is true. If you told me that this man with this gimmick would make a very likeable, very over babyface in 2013, I'd have laughed at you. But he ends up being exactly that, and winning the title in a MOTYC against Big Show?...

I'm so confused...

Re: Alberto Del Rio World Heavyweight Champion

I just dont get it... I get that they want a latino guy in the top for the fans from mexico etc. But I dont get why ADR... What the hell have he done? raped Vince?
But, this could be a way to get Ziggler cashing it in.

Re: Alberto Del Rio World Heavyweight Champion

If you want to get the people who watch wrestling once a year - you want the best possible matches at wrestlemania. ADR vs Ziggler will be a great match (not as good as Bryan vs Ziggler) because they are talented in ring workers, which Vince hopes as younger guys, will bring more people back to wrestling.

Your opinions don't matter. I am right and everyone one not agreeing with me is a troll, or an idiot.

Re: Alberto Del Rio World Heavyweight Champion

Coming from a guy that hated Del RIo as a heel, I've found his face turn so refreshing. His friendship with Ricardo is a huge part of it, imo. But he also works a damn good match as a face and he can sell it very well.

Latino crowd? Miami isn't just a Latino crowd, they're a Cuban crowd, Del Rio is Mexican, and Cubans don't give two shits about Mexicans. Del Rio didn't even get a pop in Mexico, so now that he gets one in Miami, it's because he's Latino? You're reaching here. Sticking Del Rio in a face role isn't just a random change, seeing as how he's spent most of his career as a successful face.

Yeah this is true. All the 'latino hero' comments helped a little maybe, but they were probably because next week's shows are in Texas. That's where he can get a big pop from Mexican fans. Besides, there's such a thing as being awesome w/o being as good as Punk or Cena (and I personally think he's better than Cena).

WWE favorites: Punk, Sheamus, Lesnar, Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns,
Del Rio, Orton, Bryan, Ziggler, Wyatt, Usos, Cesaro, Mysterio, Kane
DGPW: Doi, Yoshino, Tozawa, Yamato, Dragon Kid, BxB Hulk, Ricochet, Super Shisa
NJPW: Okada, Nakamura, Styles ROH: Briscoes, Fish and O'Reilly, Young Bucks
All-Time: Rock, Punk, Lesnar, Angle

Re: Alberto Del Rio World Heavyweight Champion

It was a pleasant surprise. Its refreshing and nice to see someone other than the boring show or boring sheamus becoming a champion. That too on a smackdown episode. 2 thumbs up for this decision.
