Are your ready for WrestleMania this weekend? Believe it or not, the beloved WWE franchise is approaching its 30th year and this time out they’re adding some Latino flava.

Mexican-born Alberto Del Rio is planning to give the event a Hispanic touch. The current heavyweight champ, Alberto is considered to be the hero of this year’s matchup.

But his persona wasn’t always so rosy. As Del Rio told Fox News Latino, he used to be a hated villain who eventually “saw the light.”

“I was having a blast being the bad guy of the movie, but I’m also having fun being the baby face, the good guy,” he said.

Alberto will be taking on the dreaded Jack Swagger at Saturday’s show. But despite his shiny belt, Del Rio isn’t considered the headliner. WrestleMania’s biggest draws this year are Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and John Cena.
