Del Rio was on Smackdown for the first part of his career, during which he almost immediately became a top player on the brand.
His snobby, rich gimmick garners enough heat without any effort on ADR's part, but his cocky tongue and spectacular in-ring ability receives tenfold that amount.
He feuded with former world champions in Rey Mysterio, Christian, and Edge, and he also at one point won the Royal Rumble.
Whilst it is believed he was originally slated to take the World Heavyweight Championship from Edge at WrestleMania, things were changed around and the Rated-R Superstar retained. However, Edge subsequently vacated the belt after it became apparent that he had to retire.
Del Rio and Christian then fought for the title, but Captain Charisma achieved victory, winning his first world title in the process.
Del Rio once again had to sit back as others tasted success.
Now on RAW, he is involved in a bout with yet another former world champion, this time in the gigantic form of The Big Show.
It is rumoured that, following this, Alberto Del Rio will square off with (guess what) another World Champion, John Cena. If this turns out to be true, it could be Del Rio's time to put himself in the history books by taking hold of the belt.
With all these close encounters, it's about time he grabs the real thing.
