We're not exaggerating...much.
But I don't hear much of anything from the crowd when Rio is out in the ring, though.
He needs to change either his gimmick, his promos(ugh!), and/or his ring attire. Do something...ANYTHING to get the Fans to give a crap about him 'cause I just don't see(or rather 'hear') any Heat for him right now.
Anyway, Del Rio was primed to main-event by WWE. Feuded with Mysterio when he came in, won the Royal Rumble, sure he lost at WM but everyone knew he was going to win at Extreme Rules, but then Edge retired and screwed him. Vince then gave the title to Christian out of sympathy, but really, Del Rio is a big player in the WWE and to properly make his breakthrough they're gonna make him go through Show and then Cena. It doesn't matter whether his promos are repetitive, how well you perform doesn't always correspond with how you're booked. Just you see.
Actually, when I watched him on Smackdown each time he came out, it never occurred to me that Fake Crowd Noise was being piped-in until much later. And when Rio started being on RAW, I finally saw how "fake" his perceived OVER-ness was on Smackdown.
He's not over, man. Sorry. He'd be a Permanent resident of Sunday Night Heat back in the day.
They called him the "Crown Jewel of the RAW Draft". Well this "Jewel" needs to be re-polished HEAVILY if the Shine that they expect is to materialize 'cause right now he resembles a large lump of coal.
