Re: Why was Del Rio so hated?
"He had charisma", no he didn't actually, well at least not as far as WWE is concerned. In fact it's the main contributing factor in his overall hate from the fans. He could work sure, but he was the epitome of charisma vacuum. He came off as phony, dull, and extremely basic. It's a wonder his manager Ricardo was far more over than he could have ever hoped to be in WWE. Which is weird because of you watch ADR in any other promotion such as AAA, LU, and hell even Impact he shines like a legit star. It's just in WWE he quickly became an after thought regardless of WWE's poor attempts at establishing him as the head draw for the Mexico demo, which obviously failed. Perhaps it was ADR having a lack of overall desire to be there and when you consider how creatively bankrupt WWE was even then when those were fairly entertaining years compared to now it still shows, just look at how short his second run was.
