Backstage Update - Del Rio's Babyface Turn & Title Win
Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter
When Alberto Del Rio won the World Title on SmackDown, word was that this was done because the company needs a strong Hispanic hero to replace Rey Mysterio.
While that played a part in it, some feel that the babyface turn and title victory came as a reaction to Cain Velasquez winning the UFC Heavyweight Title. The Velasquez vs. Dos Santos PPV reportedly did a big buyrate and with Velasquez being considered a proven draw, many feel that Del Rio winning the title and turning face is no coincidence.
