Digital Spy has an interview with Alberto Del Rio, who is challenging John Cena for the World Heavyweight Championship at Survivor Series this Sunday. Here are just a few highlights:
Why John Cena divides the fans: “Because he’s important. He’s been the face of the WWE for years and years. Every time you have a guy like that, that’s what happens. It’s the same in any other sport. In football you have Real Madrid, you either love them or hate them. Here it’s the same with Manchester United.”
If the WWE Championship and the World Heavyweight Championship should be unified: “Of course that can happen, but I don’t think it’s something that we need right now. I think it’s okay if we’ve got the WWE Title with one person and the World Heavyweight title with another one. That way you have two different storylines and you’re talking about two major titles to be defended and be present in every single pay-per-view.”
British stars never holding the WWE Championship: “You think they’re happy to have a Mexican WWE Champion?! Nah, it’s going to happen. Wade Barrett is going to be a WWE champion one day, I’m 100% sure of that. I just don’t know when, but he’s going to have one of the major titles in the future. After that you guys can be proud of Wade Barrett for the rest of his life.”
Del Rio also discussed being the first Mexican-born WWE Champion, his match with Cena this Sunday, why he prefers being a heel, his favorites Survivor Series memories, going back to Mexico as champion and more. You can read the full interview at this link.
