His moveset and matches are good most of the time, its just his character.

Not even close. In fact, he's one of the better members of the current roster.

I realise where they're going and that WWE will push Roman Reigns straight to the top. However for me, Dean Ambrose is by far the most talented in that group and I think eventually if they just give him the spotlight then he's going to shine. As soon as he touches a mic everyone else can just sit down as he's magic on it. So It remains to be seen, I think they're all talented but to me Dean was the star of that group. I think Roman looks like the star of that group but I don't think he's nearly as talented as Dean.

Yes.

I disagree. His execution is excellent, but I honestly don't think he has what it takes to pull people into a match. I've never watched a match of his and genuinely given a shit about the fate of his opponent. I've never watched a match and hated him for the things he's done. I take nothing away from his athletic ability, but I believe he's incapable of doing the things a heel is supposed to be doing in the ring. To be honest I think he ought to be a face.

Re: Seriously, is Del Rio the most boring wrestler of all time?

People who say Del Rio is good in the ring are trying to make excuses for him. I couldn't care less about the technical application of fake wrestling moves, his matches are the exact same every week and he does nothing to engage the audience or attract any interest whatsoever during them, just boring, repetitive moves designed to 'target the arm', which doesn't make sense anyway if the cross-armbreaker is supposedly such a devastating hold. Del Rio is below average in the ring, as in every other aspect of his work.

Re: Seriously, is Del Rio the most boring wrestler of all time?

I actually genuinely enjoy his matches most of the time and his character entertains me - although mainly at the times where he makes mannerisms that look like he doesn't give a fuck. It's just that most of the time he's put in stale, lazy feuds like with Sheamus and Orton.

Naaah not most boring, but he is sure one of them. Tensai, Big Show and Kane are worse imo.

He's boring because it seems he fights randy orton and sheamus for 90000000000000000000000 times and then randomly beats kofi and gets a number 1 contender spot and calls everyone a peasant

We've seen him pull big ass ratings in Mexico right when he was the Champ? Oh wait. He's not that big of a draw, nothing has even indicated that over the last 2 years. Hell, if you would need to rank the 3 Mexican wrestlers in the WWE in terms of popularity in Mexico it would be 1) Mysterio, 2) Sin Cara, 3) ADR. Also, stop comparing everyone to CM Punk, for fuck sakes.

No, he's better in the ring than a good portion of the guys in WWE. He isn't given much interesting things to do outside of the in-ring work though.
