Alberto Del Rio, In my opinion, sucks. Sure he can wrestle, but to be a pro wrestler you need to do more than wrestle. You have to have personality, mic skills, ETC. He is so boring to watch, like I said I am very aware he knows how to wrestle, but is he any fun to watch? Hell no. Now his boring feud with punk his hurting punk. Every feud the guy has ever had has been boring.

Look at his mic work when he was in the ring with Miz and Punk at the end of raw a couple weeks ago, he goes " Punk, you are going to lose" and it was all cheesy and awkward.

I say take Del Rio, put him on superstars or send him back to FCW

WWE made a mistake imo to push del rio to soon to the main event. He's good in the ring but not entertaining at all..

i actually like Del Rio, sure his title reigns were poor but thats because he was booked to look like a bitch every week, two title reigns and only one defence not good, if they had made him more credible in his title reigns then I think people would be singing a diffent tune, it just shows WWE cant dedicate themselves to anything, they had been building Del Rio's title reign since Royal rumble, but then Punk became the hot topic, so they jumped ship.

IMO they shouldnt have moved him to Raw he was doing great on smackdown, a proper feud with Christian over the summer for the WHC would have been much better for both guys, Christian wouldnt have been buried by orton, and Del rio wouldnt have become irrelavant only to pop back up and win the WWE title with no momentum behind him.

I couldn't agree more. There is nothing I like about watching ADR. Yes he is a capable wrestler but even his ring work is boring. I spend a lot of time surfing the internet during his matches. He is just not credible at all.

I know what ur talking about It is hurting both Punk and Miz who are two of the best if not the best current wwe mic worker's to be doing promo's with the guy

The problem is obviously because he was pushed to the moon way too soon and his character isn't that appealing to some. If WWE would have just waited out with his character instead of trying to give him a mega push he wasn't ready for, then he would improved with his mic skills.

I say get him out of the WWE Title picture and let him start a feud with Zack Ryder so that Zack Ryder can easily have a credible opponent to face under his U.S Title reign.

Agreed with bold. To early to soon with Del Rio. Here's a new guy! next week oh! hes wwe champion ....awesome.

I've been trying to tell someone this for the past hour, since he believes Ziggler and Cody should be pushed now instead of connecting with the fans more.

Del Rio, like most the guys they have, was pushed way too fast. He was given no time to develop his mic skills. Nobody is ready for the main event right away, and more often then not, the guys that get pushed right to the top, soon after find themselves trapped in the mid card, or released.

But Superstars or FCW?..I think he better then that.

You can never have too much cowbell.

He doesn't have the oomph or it factor guys like miz and ziggler have. All these new superstars are walking in with the handicaps of internet spoilers and the 'done it all' aspects guys like Austin, hhh, rock and hbk left behind. There's no wcw to compete with and all of their jobs are safe as long as they can go.


It's monotonous, its 2011/12 and WWE is constantly struggling with making the next instead of making a whole new.

The man gets the job done, He needs to go back to the mid card for a year or two that would give him the time to get better on the mic and "hurting punk"? I guess now every wrestler has to protect punk's ass

This has pretty much been my opinion on Del Rio ever since he won the Royal Rumble. It's always destiny this and destiny that. Shut...the...fuck...up.

the problem is his character, he comes off as too cheesy imo, he needs to bring some seriousnes to it and make the gimmick more believable.

Rilla
12-26-2011, 03:32 PM
he can't connect to the fans. He was pushed when no one cared about him and couldn't get them to do it for the most part, no matter what prestigious thing WWE threw at him.

the funny thing is a few months ago most the folks on here were complaining that he hadn't gotten a push..

Have him lose all his money (storyline) and reboot him with a new gimmick. Maybe have him find religion. I can see him being a God bothering face for a while. Maybe then have him discover the greed of evangelism and then turn him heel again.

You do know you are apart of this 'IWC', right?

I'm sure he wasn't trying to be condescending.

I don't he's the problem.. I think creative fucked up any intimidating factor the man had. Then again, they don't even know how to make heels anymore.
