Alberto Del Rio recently spoke with WWE Magazine about his face turn and more. Here are the highlights…
On Turning Face: “It was the WWE Universe that put me in this position. They wanted to see me as a good guy, so I wanted to do whatever they want because, at the end of the day, we’re here for them.”
On His Relationship With Ricardo: That relationship between us helped me because it helped me to show people that particular side of Alberto Del Rio. That he has a good heart, and is willing to fight for his beliefs and to protect the people he cares about.”
On Using Flashier Moves Now: “When I first debuted here, I honestly wasn’t interested in impressing (WWE fans), so I didn’t use moves like that,” Del Rio said. “But now that I’ve changed, I’m going to try to incorporate all of those high-flying moves (from Mexico) back into my repertoire.”
Del Rio also added that he plans to wrestle as long as possible in WWE, then retire with one final match back in Mexico whenever that time comes.
