alberto del rio turning face is smart. there is a lack of quality main event faces right now, and as much as everyone hates to admit it alberto del rio is a quality wrestler. He seems to have a less annoying move set when he is a face as well.
I love a face del rio turn, if his gimmick was changed up slighty like the eddie guerrero cheat to win stuff have him win some matches using comedic underhand tactics and have some comedic promos, I think ricardo is the key to him getting over they are gonna merch the crap out of his announcing dddeellllllllllll rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooo on t-shirts I think would sell.
and off topic but I see a tensai turn soon too
Read the spoilers for next week...do not read on if you don't wanna be spoilt:
So, running over Santa and having a match with Cena. Is he face or heel then??? Or Alberto Del Tweener?
I don't like how they turned him face. I agree with turning him face, but the way they did it was pretty half-assed. The idea of Alberto Del Rio saving his countrymen I thought was really good... until you look them up and see that they're not from Mexico. He could've gone out to save them because that's who he grew up listening to all this time. One of them has been around since 1993, and the other since 2000. The guy from 1993 could be their Jim Ross for all we know. To me it was the lack of explaining that, and a lack of warning 3MB not to fuck with the Spanish announce team, and of course a lack of natural reluctance to tagging with Miz that made his face turn so half-assed.
I agree with what Robstar said.. It's good they trying something new rather then not trying and choosing to let go off someone who's a solid worker and appeals to the latino market even if the majority of fans outside of those countries don't like him.
I personally like Del Rio, I did however like him better when he first came into the WWE, I felt he lost his way a little bit after winning the titles and accolades like he did.. it makes sense for them to try and turn him face though.. He's become stale as Heel and has feuded with most of the faces already, plus The latino market is huge and with Del Rio there looking for him to fill the void that they would have perhaps thought Sin Cara would have filled by now.
It's not going to happen over night.. but I think Del Rio could work as a face because of Ricardo Rodriquez who everyone loves, Also I'm sure TT said it in another thread, Del Rio was face in Mexico before coming to America.. all in all it's just going to take time.
