I’ve been reading some wrestling message forums and blogs, and many wrestling fans are questioning why did WWE give a new guy the Wrestlemania main event status so quickly? Yes. I agree it’s a little weird. Alberto Del Rio have only been around for a few months. His performing have been creating a buzz around the wrestling world.
If you want to know why WWE did this, here is why.
WWE wants to give Mexican wrestlers more recognition. They are about to sign more Mexican wrestlers in the near future. As I believe they want to do Mexican tours, perform shows in Mexico. WWE do world wide tours yearly, and they will do four shows in, Mexico, in the Month of May. Check it out, here.
Since Wrestlemania 27, is on April 3rd, a month before the Mexican tour, I’m pretty sure, Alberto Del Rio will be made World Heavyweight Champion at Wrestlemania. WWE wants to make Alberto World Heavyweight Champion for the Mexican fans, when they go on the foreign tour. WWE wants the Mexican fans to feel happy that their home country hero is a champion. Get the drill? It’s easy to understand. Mexican wrestling fans deserve this. Alberto maybe a hated wrestler in the USA since he is a heel, but I’m sure he’s LOVED by all Mexican fans in Mexico. He’s a hero to Mexicans.
I think Alberto is a great performer. I think Eddie Guerrero was the best Mexican performer, no one could top him, but Alberto is my second favorite. Chavo Guerrero and Rey Mysterio are Mexicans as well. Why couldn’t they give it to Chavo or Rey Mysterio instead??? It’s because Alberto is more recognizable and has more star power. Alberto got popular quick because of his good looks and his excellent mic skills. He’s also very entertaining.
I hope you understand why WWE did this. I think it’s a good idea too as Mexican fans deserve a Mexican champion!
