Also, his in ring style is what gets him over with the crowd. He has some of the best kicks and strikes in the business today and his set of submissions are pretty impressive. Again, keep it.
As for the theme, I didn't say a complete change. Just a "rock" version of his current theme would be fine for me.

I pointed out his kicks and strikes and how he should use them more. I'm just saying tone down working one the arm. A lot of the time, unless you're a hardcore fan, watching someone work over the arm the entire match gets boring at times and slows down a match. A face is supposed to excite the crowd, not bore them.

I'm not saying to replace either. Just modifying.

I'm not saying his theme or in ring ability are bad. I'm saying they should be modified to adapt to his new face role. To be honest, I think Alberto is good on the mic. When the guy first debuted, people we're saying the guy oozed charisma and machismo. The problem is that every promo sounded the same.

IMO, Alberto can talk. He sounds good when he talks. His material (whether it's his fault or creatives') is what drags him down.
