Re: Seriously, is Del Rio the most boring wrestler of all time?
I liked Alberto Del Rio when he was first introduced via a series of video packages. That is usually a good way to build momentum and generate some form of buzz for a new wrestler. They put him in there with the perfect Opponent In Rey mysterio, Someone who has worked the luchador style in mexico but has years upon years of experience working in the wwe , so he can aid del rio in adjusting to the new style and Help to look good. He defiantly displays charisma and can be viewed as believable. However I feel that where my interest with him faded is because they did too much with him too soon.
So not long after he debuted he is already being groomed for a wrestlmania match for the title , he wins the royal rumble but fails to win the title at mania. That did not help him. If he is suppose to start off hot and sustain that buzz he needs to keep winning instead he lost. Then he floundered for a bit. Won the mitb ladder match but was overshadowed by cm punk. When he won the title at summerslam he did not have the same momentum that he had earlier. He had the title but barely looked like a strong champion and was never presented as the main guy.
when he came back from injury this year, he was thrust right into title matches ..... two things though
the people wanted daniel bryan in that role and demanded it and secondly he had no time to re build and re establish himself. So then he is in title programs and is losing all the time . By the time we get to where we are now I would dare say I have almost little to no interest in him at all.
