News On Alberto Del Rio & Ricardo Rodriguez, Mysterio Starts Physical Therapy

– With World Heavyweight champion Alberto Del Rio starting to get over as a babyface, reports that there are people within WWE that think Del Rio no longer needs Ricardo Rodriguez by his side. One has to question this line of thinking, as Ricardo is arguably more over than Del Rio.

After getting attacked by Jack Swagger on RAW and suffering a “broken ankle” (according to WWE), Ricardo is expected to be off television for a week to sell the injury.

– Rey Mysterio tweeted the following update on the status of his knee on Monday:

    Wrong decision to split them

    • Simba

      Definitely would be bad for Del Rio but i think it would be good to see Ricardo on his own for a bit to see how he performs. As a business decision I wouldn’t split them but personally, as a fan, I would like to see Ricardo on his own.

      • Pozessed

        I think Ricardo would be made out to be a Santino type character or Funaki… The guy is pretty good in the ring but WWE have placed the stupid guy gimmick on him and it will sadly stick I suppose.

      • Lester Foxx

        Ricardo shouldn’t be on his own given today’s creative ideas. He will just be used as jobbers then disappear. He should stay as the manager.

        WWE can split him and Del Rio a few times, but only when Ricardo is managing guys like El Generico to feud with Del Rio.

  • Lorenzo Dozier

    Would like to see Ricardo become a Wrestler on TV. They only have him work as El Local on WWE Saturday Morning Slam. That’s the only way I can see them splitting up, if he is used as a wrestler more.

  • Benjamin

    Splitting Rio and Ricardo now would be a monumentally stupid idea.

    Which means it’s guaranteed to happen.

  • Toonami

    Del Rio is a solid wrestler but personally I find him boring on the mic if not involving Ricardo. Taking him away is bad.

  • Steve

    if they split them up, i would really like to see El Local on TV. He definately is more over than Sin Cara…

  • General Disarray

    Del Rio = The true best in the world. Mysterio needs to retire and Cara needs to get lost. My boy ADR will take it from here.

    • Nelson Carvalho

      del rio the true best in the world?!what do you mean by that?!is he a good wrestler? he a good talker?no.thats the difference.

  • Ace

    If they split that would be a terrible idea. The most reaction Del Rio gets is when Ricardo introduces the champ!

  • JamieEvsxx

    I think they should keep Del Rio and Ricardo together for now considering they’re over as a pair…plus Del Rio’s ring introductions just wouldn’t be the same without Ricardo’s “Albertoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Deeeeel Rrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiioooooooooooooooooooooooo”…=P

  • BrahmaBullRKO

    Yeah WWE, take away the main reason people were able to get behind ADR in the first place and just turn him into Bland Babyface #12: This Time He’s Mexican.
