WWE is high on Alberto Del Rio’s push because they are keen to get another Hispanic star established on Smackdown. Batista is gone and Rey Mysterio is one knee injury away from potential retirement. Del Rio has done well with management but some of the wrestlers consider him to be too aloof, like his gimmick. The term that he has got Mil Mascaras blood in him has been banded about. Management has already spoken with him about trying to not rub certain guys the wrong way.
