In a new interview conducted for DirecTV, #1 contender to the WWE World Heavyweight Title Alberto Del Rio spoke on a number of topics, including thoughts on Eddie Guerrero, his toughest WWE opponents and more. Below are interview highlights:
His Toughest WWE Opponent?:
"All of them. But if I had to give you two names, I would say John Cena would the number one. He is the face of the WWE and that is a man who never stops. He's a machine. The other one would be Rey Mysterio. He is an icon. He's a legend to all Latin Americans. I've had great moments every time I've been in the ring with him."
Does He Still Have a Relationship with Ricardo Rodriguez?:
"No. I fired Ricardo Rodriguez like 3 months ago. I don't even remember him or even know what he's doing now. And to be honest, I don't care."
Was He an Eddie Guerrero Fan?:
"Yes, of course. I'm Mexican. I grew up watching him. I saw him several times before he came to WWE or any other company in the US. He wrestled for years and years in Mexico, especially in Ciudad Juarez. I've always admired him. He started from the bottom and at the end of his career he was one of the most amazing, most popular Superstars in the world."
