Why is Alberto Del Rio hated on here?

It seems like people hate him because he doesnt recieve heat from the crowd. Now tell me what heel besides CM Punk recieves heat? That's right none. Del Rio is one of the best wrestlers in the WWE. It's difficult for him to cut a promo because of his accent but he isn't as bad as people claim to be.

Because he's completely uninteresting in every way.

Re: Why is Albert Del Rio hated on here?

Idk why. Im a fan of his, on smackdown he was great but things changed as soon as he got.drafted to raw. Its not him though because guy is talented as hell. He has the ring skills and has charisma. Add Ric Rod and that adds even more to his character. Always felt if they added Epico and Primo or Hunico and Camacho with him then an edge he lacks would be added to him if they were used as his enforcers.

Because he got everything handed to him without him earning a single thing.

Re: Why is Albert Del Rio hated on here?

The crowd has completely rejected him in every way and yet he consistently not only gets multiple speaking and wrestling opportunities per week he...

Received over a month of vignettes and hype video package
Made Rey Mysterio tap out in his debut match
Won a Royal Rumble
Won Money in the Bank
Has been in around 50 squash matches when he's not even close to being dominant enough or over enough to warrant that
Has been a WWE champ 2 times in 18 months
Consistently is a title challenger and high on PPV cards

Why? It is the biggest disparity between accolades and fan reaction in about as long as I can remember.

Yes, it is him. Anyone with an ounce of talent would have gotten over with the push Del Rio had. Hell, even I would probably have gotten over. Del Rio is a passable worker and that's it. So is Jack Swagger, so is Michael McGillicutty, that doesn't mean I want to see them on my TV every week. Especially in such a prominent role, regularly going over or even squashing guys that have worked far harder and are far more entertaining than him. Del Rio is like the fun police when he comes out, you pretty much already know what's going to happen and that nobody is going to give a shit either way.

His 'richer than you, so better than you' gimmick has been done till Ad nauseam.
Million Dollar Man, Tiger Ali Singh, JBL all had these gimmicks so it's nothing new.
Perhaps he can become a face and get rid of the rich guy gimmick.

Re: Why is Albert Del Rio hated on here?

He's just too boring. And for everything he's been handed, surely he should have gotten over by this point. Let's see...

- Given a fancy entrance with pyro, nice theme, luxury cars, personal ring announcer, scarf, a very wealthy gimmick and all that.
- Makes Rey Mysterio tap out in his debut.
- Takes credit for putting Christian out of action.
- Wins the first ever 40 man Royal Rumble.
- Makes every opponent in his way tap out.
- Goes to Wrestlemania and is put in one of the World Title matches.
- Gets credit for retiring Edge.
- Wins Money in the Bank briefcase.
- Cashes in on a red hot CM Punk that has just retained against Cena at SummerSlam.
- Beats Punk and Cena in Hell in a Cell.
- Goes over Cena in their feud as the person with the last laugh. (unclean but so what?)
- Despite zero reaction, he returns from injury and directly gets put into World Title matches.
- Goes over one of the most over top guys in Randy Orton clean by submission. *pukes*

Anyone would have gotten over by this point. And it wouldn't be a problem if he's over had he actually been entertaining but he's not. Great in-ring talent and all, just way too dull.

Re: Why is Alberto Del Rio hated on here?

I hate how people always say he has been handed everything. FFS he lost every single PPV in 2012. He may have won MITB and the Royal Rumble but he is still booked like shit.
