His matches are good but his whole "destiny" schtick got old quick along with trying to get heat from keeping an armbar on his opponent for a minute after the match.

Ever? I dunno, that's hard to say. Certainly a candidate.

On today's roster? Absolutely. He's got the personality and charisma of a tree stump, and I've seen fish with better mic skills. He's the polar opposite of the Dos Equis guy-he's the most uninteresting man in the world. I don't care how great you are in the ring, if you don't have the personality and charisma, you are fighting a losing battle and won't get over.

That means that you also reject significant parts of the storytelling of Ric Flair and his likes.

As for your last sentence, of course it doesn't because the words "good" and "interesting" are by definition subjective. Unfortunately you use double standards because you use that logic on my opinions but treat your own as facts. It's fine to be lazy and express opinions in a factual way but if you do that it needs to be done consistently.
So the fact that Del Rio employs extremely basic, low-level psychology every single match without ever really elaborating on it and varying from the theme means he is good in the ring? Targeting body parts is fine, targeting the exact same body part in the exact same way every single week is not. I mean if you're interested in watching someone go out and do the same boring routine week after week after week after week then great, but as I said, I want to see more than just someone competently executing fake moves, which Del Rio isn't even that good at anyway compared to the actual good workers on the roster like Tyson Kidd. Del Rio is a complete failure and IMO there isn't any excuse for how badly he has bombed. He should either be put in a comedy tag team with Ricardo or jobbed out for the remainder of his career. They are achieving nothing other than hurting the momentum of others by continuing to book him strongly.

Bored trolls are bored.

It's either someone commenting on Punk or on Ambrose.

LEt's see, personal opinion:

1. His promos are indeed a little boring, but not more boring than your average wwe promo today.
2. I love his matches to be honest, he's very entertaining in the ring
3. True, more a creative fault than his actually.
4-5. Don't get the difference so I quote both, his gimmick is essentially a JBL repack and I agree it doesn't work, make his rich man persona more edgy and cunning or change his gimmick asap
6. nothing wrong about his look.

His matches are great. He is a very good worker. His persona is so dull though as well as his promos.

No, I've never stated that as the reason for that I think he's better in the ring than a lot of the WWE roster. You said that it doesn't make sense for him to target a body part like that and I responded by saying that it's one of the basics of wrestling psychology. That's as far as I've commented on the topic.

While I think he's a better talker than some of the roster as well I'd still take a boring guy that executes moves well than a boring guy that can't execute things well (and there are such guys in WWE). I'm not a big ADR fan, and I've been very tired of him for periods of time, but I do think that he's more competent than a good part of the roster in all aspects. I'd still rather see him talk than seeing someone flapping his arms and shouting "feed me more" over and over, so who becomes popular and who doesn't has little affect on my opinion.
