We all know Ricardo is the next big thing and the hottest commodity in wrestling right now, but will WWE take heed of this?

His relationship with Alberto is perfect for pulling a Miz/Riley-esque Face turn.

Ricardo strikes me as a guy who the fans wouldn't mind cheering for if they got the chance, hell he gets a bigger reaction than Del Rio a lot of the time.

WWE could totally do some kind of storyline where Del Rio begins to become super over the top arrogant and begins to treat Ricardo like shit, or Ricardo botches a few interferences that cause Del Rio to lose matches or something spawning some resentment and hatred towards himself.

Than Ricardo could just get tired of the verbal and maybe even physical abuse and turn on Del Rio.

Since WWE wants to add more realism to their product they could even give a nudge and wink to his porno career and make him into some kind of suave ladies man ala Latino Heat Eddie Guerrero.

ADR will eventually turn on Ricardo, actually. Since ROD is the most successful and charismatic of the two. Wouldn't be surprised if Del Rio's jelly at RIC-ROD'S self-matchmaking and outstanding selling-bumping abilities.

That's also a possibility, but Del Rio strikes me as more of the Heel Worker. Some wrestlers just aren't made to be Faces. Del Rio pulls off his arrogant aristocrat gimmick really well right now, he has the perfect annoying Heel mannerisms. Ricardo on the other hand could probably be at least a decent Face Midcarder.

I don't see him turning since he's leading a heel faction in FCW and that makes believe they have plans of making him a full-time wrestler down the road. Having ADR beat him down and written off TV for a few months and then returning later as a heel seems like a lot more likely scenario.

I can see a Ricardo face turn down the line, especially if ADR keeps putting him in harms way.

I just hope that if this does happen and he becomes an active wrestler, that they allow him to be his own ring announcer, just for the laughs (and because he's fucking brilliant at it).
