WWE: Let Ricardo Rodriguez Wrestle

Editor's Note: This FanPost has been mildly edited for your enjoyment, Cagesiders!

________________________

Before I start, let me say that I don't think I have ever seen Ricardo Rodriguez wrestle, but I really want to. Ever since he started as Del Rio's personal ring announcer, I have been a big fan. Even while I hated Del Rio with a passion, I have really enjoyed Rodriguez's work. He has built up a real, undeniable connection with The WWE Universe.

Why not let him wrestle with a mask? Yes, I know most would figure out that it was him sooner rather than later, but it could be a really good story-telling device. Have him deny he's wrestling and eventually get found out. He could become a real fan favorite as an underdog. Ricardo has already proven that he has the comedic chops as well as a good amount of charisma; it could really be worth giving it a chance. And, if it flops, he can still announce without much harm to his character.

I got to thinking about this because I was reading a rumor about Rey Mysterio's uncertain future. That, combined with the flop that currently is Sin Cara, and how Del Rio just isn't getting over the way WWE needs him to be means that WWE really needs to create a big Hispanic star. Rodriguez can speak English and Spanish really well and could be the guy to get over enough to help WWE until they find their next big Latino star.

So, CageSiders, what do you think of this? Do you believe he could be used as more than just an announcer?
