对于Alberto Del Rio的转正，我是持乐观态度的。首先，他的heel，自大狂heel的这个角色已经做到有点沉闷了，特别现在新人涌入，大量heel的出现，让他这个“老人家”越发没有存在感。正如下面外国盆友所说，heel需要经常mic技，奚落笑话对手，但babyface你只需要角色够正，摔角技术又好，观众就会喜欢你，mic技是ADR的弱项，但后面两个只要剧情组给力，我对Alberto Del Rio是绝对放心的。
正如这篇文章以及网友对这片文章的评论所说，我也不觉得Alberto Del Rio的这个babyface会是一个顶级，但他的水平我认为是毋庸置疑的高级二线，稳定的地位，稳定的表演，就像Kofi Kingston那样，就像Rey Mysterio那样，但位置会比这两人都略高。ADR将是那种专门喂顶级heel的非顶级babyface。
关于接下来Alberto Del Rio的走势，和Big Show发生剧情是大势所趋，就看Alberto Del Rio和剧情组们如何handle这个剧情了，但毋庸置疑，无论ADR会不会突然强势“捡到”WHC，做一回过渡的顶级冠军他都将在WHC从Big Show转到Dolph Ziggler上起到一定的作用（xrspook：按照常理应该是heel - babyface -heel的哈）。结束这个辅助转手后，我觉得Alberto Del Rio将和Wade Barrett发生剧情，非常有可能把Wade Barrett现在的IC腰带抢过来，那么顺理成章Wade更进一步去WHC了，同时Alberto Del Rio也完成了由所谓顶级heel（xrspook：实际上是落难顶级heel）到高级二线babyface的转化。
我觉得Alberto Del Rio和Ricardo Rodriguez非常可以当正义的蝙蝠侠和罗宾嘛！
于是，现在我终于明白为啥从前有那么多人 把ADR PS到蝙蝠侠的图里了……
Alberto Del Rio: Why the Mexican Aristocrat’s Face Turn Will Be a Success
By Mike Chiari (Featured Columnist) on January 3, 2013
For the past 18 months, Alberto Del Rio has been on a steady decline as a top heel. He was no longer resonating with the fans, and many considered him boring, but his current face turn is the perfect remedy for what has been ailing him.
Del Rio burst onto the scene in the WWE in the summer of 2010, and there was certainly a lot of buzz surrounding him. He was billed as an affluent man with rich Mexican blood lines. The WWE touted him as the nephew of the legendary Mil Mascaras and essentially force fed him to the audience as the next big heel in the company.
It worked for a while, as Del Rio was unique and interesting at first. He was booked well too, with a win over Rey Mysterio in his debut match and a triumph in the largest Royal Rumble of all time in 2011. Del Rio would lose his World Heavyweight Championship to Edge at WrestleMania XXVI, though, and things seemed to unravel from there.
Will Alberto Del Rio succeed as a face?
84.3% Yes, he is much more interesting and has the tools to go a long way
15.7% No, he doesn’t come off as a natural face and it isn’t going to work

He did win the Money in the Bank contract and had two short runs with the WWE Championship; however, Del Rio had already run his course. A severe groin injury kept him out of action for a while, and he hasn’t really recovered since in terms of relevance.
Del Rio feuded with Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Championship throughout the summer, but he never looked like a true threat, and that damaged him even further. Del Rio has floundered since the end of that feud, but things changed at TLC.
With Ricardo Rodriguez getting bullied by 3MB, Del Rio ran out to make the save. It was truly the first face moment that Del Rio had ever had in the WWE, and the fans reacted well. He went on to team with The Miz and The Brooklyn Brawler to beat 3MB that night, and he, Miz and Tommy Dreamer did it again on the following Raw.
The face turn seemed random and abrupt, but the WWE has done a nice job building on it since then. At first, it was unclear if he had actually become a full-fledged face, but that question was answered when he rushed to Ricardo’s defense once again. Ricardo was scheduled to face Big Show on SmackDown, but Big Show knocked him out, so Del Rio defended his honor.
Big Show then bullied Ricardo into a match on Raw, and Del Rio was extremely supportive. He gave Ricardo his scarf and the keys to his car. He also accompanied him to the ring and interfered when Big Show was about to deliver a Knockout Punch. Del Rio came across looking very cool, and I can’t help but think that the fans are going to react favorably to him as a face.
One of the big advantages to being a face is that you don’t necessarily have great mic skills. It’s obviously a plus, but a heel generally needs to be better on the mic since they’re often insulting their opponents and the fans. Faces can take a basic, cookie-cutter approach and still thrive as long as they have a good character and solid in-ring skills.
Del Rio has both of those things, and lessening the burden when it comes to cutting promos will be beneficial for him. His new character is interesting, as he’s now a smooth, well-to-do Mexican aristocrat, but he’s using his wealth and power for good rather than exploiting and degrading others.
Also, the fact that Del Rio was viewed as tedious and repetitive on the mic detracted from his wrestling ability. Del Rio is actually one of the WWE’s best when it comes to in-ring work, and I have to believe that it will become more apparent moving forward. Not only is he athletic, but he is great technically and uses the old-school method of targeting a certain limb on his opponent’s body.
Having a submission finisher is tailored more toward a face as well. It’s a lot more likely that a heel is going to tap rather than a face, so the Cross Armbreaker could suddenly become an iconic move if Del Rio reaches new heights in the same way that the Sharpshooter was for Bret Hart.
Del Rio’s face turn doesn’t guarantee that he’ll get back to the main-event scene and succeed, but he is far more interesting now than he has been since the lost to Edge nearly two years ago at WrestleMania. He’s very unique and might have enough natural charisma as a face to be even better than he was at his height as a heel.
Del Rio will have his chance to impress, as he figures to challenge Big Show for the World Heavyweight Championship at Royal Rumble and to be involved in the Elimination Chamber match as well. My best guess is that he’ll take the Intercontinental Championship from Wade Barrett at WrestleMania and then build from there.
As long as he continues to gain momentum, Del Rio has what it takes to be a legitimate top star with huge appeal to Mexican fans, similar to Mysterio. Rey doesn’t have a ton of time left in the business, so perhaps Del Rio will be the guy who takes the torch and runs with it.
