I love this decision. Keeps fans on their toes.

This might also generate some buzz and interest in Del Rio's face turn, which I thought was awesome but it didn't seem like "the universe" felt the same way as me Even though it seems like ADR is going to be a transitional champ I still like the idea behind it.

I really wish they would just get rid of the WHC. The elimiantion of the brand split and smaller roster defeats the purpose of having two main event titles

Guess you can't have Cena overshadowed on RAW with a World Title change.
Yep...because if ADR had won on Raw, then all the wrestling community/little kids would be talking about that rather than another Cena "super-human, against all odds" victory.

Just to be clear and not sarcastic, I agree with you, Raw can do with a major title change every now and then, it keeps fans' interest up and re-iterates that ANYTHING can happen at any time.

The WHC is one of my favorite belts and has an amazing history to it. I'd like to see this:

WWE Belt/WHC - main eventers.
White IC Belt - Established mid card

Tag Belts

Cruiser Weight

Would love for them to get back to a cruiserweight division, since the WCW cruiserweight scene is what first got me into pro wrestling.

Not sure who is on the roster now that fits the mold though.

so happy for del Rio.
i have no clue how he'll do as a face. but definitly needed a change.
hopefully he can have a feud with ziggler when he cashes. i like those two.

The Rock described his reaction on Smackdown as "one of the loudest ovations I've ever received"

I can't remember the last time I was looking forward to Smackdown.

If you search in "Alberto Del Rio" on Twitter (and view "all" tweets) there's a ton of Spanish in there. WWE has their new big Mexican draw. Move over, Rey.

Loudest crowd reaction I ever heard for Del Rio, face or heel, since his 2010 debut.

To be honest, I find myself rooting more for Ricardo Rodriguez than I do for Del Rio. Without Rodriguez alongside Del Rio, I'm not sure I would be nearly as excited.

ADR's face turn is changing that for a lot of people I find. It's really becoming easy to cheer for him.

Loved the boos for Flo Rida.

Great segment with Rock and Rhodes/Sandow.

It seemed Rock was trying to keep a straight face through some of that...

Rock and Sandow are just flat out meant to be in a ring together. I couldn't stop laughing. They were freaking amazing.

Man.. Ricardo being a face announcer really works. Almost Mr. Kennedy like. Didn't think bout that one.

Also - JBL makes broadcasting fun. He's so good at putting over what is going on. Truly a lost art.
