Re: Alberto Del Rio trying to improve on the mic

I enjoyed his promo and since his face turn he's growing on me. I think he's more natural as a face and his mic work isn't too bad. Sure he's no Punk or Jericho but on the other hand you can see he's trying which is more than some other wrestlers do. And its nice to see a face not being cheesy or pulling silly facial expressions. Haters can hate, but I like Del Rio

Re: Alberto Del Rio trying to improve on the mic

I still think his promos aren't good enough for a major Title Older, but if he's trying to improve, well, it's good news, I'm ready to admit I was wrong about him (I'm eager to actually)

Re: Alberto Del Rio trying to improve on the mic

Ok are you guys trying to say that his ENTIRE accent is fake? Or that he's putting a little extra funk on it because I've met and talked to him and he DEFINITELY has an accent. I'm just trying to be clear

Re: Alberto Del Rio trying to improve on the mic

The only thing "wrong" with Del Rio's skill set is the fact that English is his second language.

But as long as he keeps his promos short, snappy, and to the point, he's actually very good. The guy's Spanish curse words just roll off his tongue with a shit ton of attitude. Gotta love it.

No doubting he has an accent, but he's definitely putting a "funk" on it that would put Brodus Clay to shame.

Re: Alberto Del Rio trying to improve on the mic

I think he's bad on the mic but I still like him for his ring work, he's actually a better talker in backstage segments for some reason.

I've noticed this about a lot of people as well.

I said the exact same thing. He's alot better at straight forward short promos. I thought however his promo on smackdown 2 weeks ago was fantastic. I crack up when he calls people perro...it's the way he says it(credit to the accent) and he's dead ass serious when he says it. Also he cusses up a STORM in spanish. He calls people mother fucker and bitches all the time but it isn't edited because alot of people don't know what he's saying. Cracks me up personally

Re: Alberto Del Rio trying to improve on the mic

His accent is getting better. Before it was thick in the wrong places, making it hard to understand.
There's an art to doing a foreign accent which sounds exotic but is easily understood. His accent is getting more theatrical -- thicker in some aspects, but at the same time more intelligible to English speakers.

I saw him cut a face promo when he was still heel back in October at nxt when him, ricardo and del rio`s brother teamed up. People should check that out. I thought it was good
