Alberto Del Rio’s Face Turn + Sammartino/WWE Update


Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

— WWE is now behind Alberto Del Rio as their new Latin babyface. Rey Mysterio currently has two Wellness Policy strikes against him and Sin Cara has been considered a total failure. Del Rio is expected to stay babyface for quite some time as they continue to build him up in the new role. The planned match between Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara at WrestleMania 29 may be off but that is not confirmed as of this writing.

— CM Punk mentioning Bruno Sammartino during his promo on RAW is said to be another sign that Sammartino is still on WWE’s radar for the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame class. WWE is still very interested in inducting Sammartino, but at this time, Sammartino has not agreed to anything with WWE. He still refuses to deal with Vince McMahon and has only been talking with Triple H.
