Maybe something like his current theme, just more rock and edgier.
Did you see that part?

Like his old promos. If you don't know what I mean, it's the same thing as "Yo, It's Me, It's Me, It's D.D.P!"
LOL! that made me so much, it could work but is useless with Ricardo chanting his name theres no need for that, now change his theme?...dunno he got lucky that they gave him one of the best themes out there..unlike Barret who has some abomination of a theme ADR theme screams Main Eventer.

Moveset.. well the only ADR face match I watched with 3MB looks like he was being faster... He was over as fuck with his Dos Caras Jr. gimmick thanks for his moveset so probably he gonna be more like that now.

WTF, why would you change two of the best things about him?

What you may find interesting is that, among my friends, it's Ziggler, Otunga, Rhodes and Del Rio's theme that is favoured and mentioned by the ones who watch/care about wrestling the least, and immitated and joked upon by us in the group who watch it the most.

I find it amazingly bizarre that you've picked themes that seem to stand out the most and label them as generic.

Personally, I don't find many of the current themes generic. Many of the ones that matter the most just do not seem fresh enough anymore, counteractively, nothing ever "seems" to change now, because of their motions, entrances, results etc... and when it does... it's up for massive critical debate. After like what, 8 years, you're surprised that Cena's theme stands out? I think it's for the wrong reasons.
Basically recognition. Certain themes you don't change. Yeah, HBK has had his theme song since forever but it's a part of who he is. Could you imagine him changing it now? It's completely unnecessary. Like how changing Bret Hart's classic theme to a more modern, watered down version was unnecessary because it kills whatever overness or reaction he would have got if he came out to iconic theme.

To me, I find Rhodes's theme bland or I find Ziggler's theme very dull or I find Otunga's theme unfitting of his character or I find Miz's theme generic. Many of the themes today don't sound the same. They don't give you the "umpht" or " business is about to pick up" vibe that others have. Cena's theme is a drag nowadays, yes, but when you hear it, it makes a reaction (however way it goes, it creates an instant reaction). Punk's theme makes him stand out because it's different and fits his current character. Orton's the same deal, Del Rio's the same deal, etc.

So, yes a change in, say, Cena's theme could be warranted but would it be for the better? Do you fix what is not really broken? He's a face and he's a had that theme ever since Wrestlemania 21. Now, if he turned heel, he would have to change it but right now, that's the least of his problems.

Very few stand out like Punk's or Cena's or Orton's. ADR is also one of them. His theme is what defines him as a character. Tweak a bit here and there but don't fully change it, there is no need.

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.

You do know the sound of the kick hitting the flesh is because Del Rio slaps his leg... making it sound the boot made an impact on the skin of the opponent

Hmmm... Seems I've been duped.

Still, I heard Punk say in an interview once that Alberto gives some of the stiffest kicks Punk has ever felt.

No chance he needs to change his theme music. You associate it with an arrogant Mexican aristocrat because that's what he has been until now.

He can still use it as a face, just like Triple H used "The Game" as both face and heel.

It could easily double as a Mexican hero theme. Think Zorro.
