Alberto Del Rio On Why He Turned Face, NFL Player Compares Goldberg To Ryback

- The WWE Magazine is featuring a short interview with Alberto Del Rio. During the interview, Del Rio was asked about why he became a babyface.

“It was the WWE Universe who put me in this position. They wanted to see me as a good guy, so I want to do whatever they want because, at the end of the day, we’re here for them. It actually has nothing to do with my old name. I was using the “Dos Caras” name to pay tribute to my father because that was the name my father used for years and years all over the world. So no — it doesn’t have anything to do with my personality.”

Del Rio was also asked if we would ever see him wrestle in a mask again.

“I don’t think that’s going to happen in WWE. Maybe someday when the WWE Universe decides that it’s time for Alberto Del Rio to retire. Maybe, and this is just maybe, I will do my last match in WWE, and then I will go to Mexico to contest one more match in my homeland, and then after that I will retire and spend time with my family and give back to my community and my family, something after all these years in the ring.”

- Washington Redskins defensive end Adam Carriker and former wrestling announcer Chuck Carroll debated about whether Ryback could have matched Goldberg’s success in WCW during the Monday Night Wars era.

Carriker said that the younger wrestler isn’t as explosive as Goldberg, which would hurt him.

Carroll noted that the Goldberg character is more true to real life than Ryback. You can catch 4th & Pain on Sunday mornings on 106.7 The Fan in Washington, DC.
