That actually sounds really good. They could work it like HBK/ Y2J when Shawn became an assistant because he was broke.


Imagine Del Rio become a ring announcer, bag boy, driver, bell ringer etc to pick up some extra cash.

This got me thinking, what would get me hooked in ADR and make view him as a legit contender to any title, I'm sire after the Draft he will at least challenge for the top title once.

Alberto Del Rio first gets back his wardrobe consisting of classy and elegant suits. He gets to drive to the ramp in a boss car every week. The new additions would be a girl or two would always be with him in his car and maybe he even gets a valet like Summer Rae or someone. The car is surrounded from all four sides by a posse or bodygaurds who ride out on motorcycles during his entrance. Post match his body guard escorts him back from the ring on a motorcycle and so on.

Thats just an idea I randomly had and can be for anyone really, especially the new Hollywood Miz. What do you guys think?
I wouldn't mind them bringing Ricardo back and they could faces, a tag team. Be like a modern day Los Guerreros.

I agree with bringing back Ricardo Rodriguez, but my idea is a little different.

I would keep the arrogant aristocrat character with the limos for ADR as a heel.

But then, I would have ADR pull double duty as a babyface Dos Caras and his sidekick, Ricardo.

Dos Caras could be like a Batman or Green Hornet type of character, and drive a decked out Mustang w/ a custom paint job like a Dos Caras mobile.

ADR's younger brother could dress up as Dos Caras in backstage vignettes to create the illusion that ADR and Dos Caras are two different people.

ADR could insult Dos Caras in interviews and buy people off w/ a Del Rio credit card. And then Dos Caras would make the charity appearances for the WWE w/ Ricardo by his side.

Setting up a sponsorship deal w/ a car company could also alleviate the cost of two special car entrances for a show that travels. Kind of like the WWE's new deal w/ TapOut or Ford's deal w/ Transformers.

Superhero gimmicks have worked before w/ Rosey and Hurricane Helms. But Stardust would be a recent example of cartoony gimmick wasting a talented wrestler.

I think the fans would buy into Dos Caras b/c ADR would be going back to his roots while Cody was doing something contrived from his brother.

Also, I say Dos Caras and not Dos Caras Jr. b/c he would be the 1st Dos Caras in the WWE. The precedent has been set w/ Rey Mysterio and Chavo Guerrero all dropping the Jr. when they came to the WWE.

Seriously, has he brought up one point other than this for the past month? If he did, I can't remember.

Guy is coasting, he has been ever since he won his first title. Mid-card is where he should stay, any higher would be ridiculous at this point.
Pretty much this says it in a nutshell. Strong in the ring that's the end of it. With Ricardo he was fine because he caught your interest when he spoke. Plus the commentary team made a huge deal of whatever car he was arriving in. When it gets to the point that your star is being upstaged by a car, that's not a good thing.

The best part of his gimmick right now is the fact that Kevin Owens is having a field day with it. I'm sure that wasn't supposed to happen but it is. As long as that continues I'm fine with it.
