My guess is because he's genuinely charismatic and has such a small role. You can also tell it's all him doing the stuff he's doing, not cue cards or much direction IMO. Plus, it's like the Zack Ryder thing, it's "cool" to like something obscure. I'd go as far as saying that it's like the IWC thing of liking things we aren't supposed to (heels). Finally, the guy is entertaining. I'm sure if the WWE notices we like him then they'll push him a lil more on us and everyone on here will collectively hate him lol.
I really didn't think he was getting more heat then Del Rio. Del Rio was getting heat, just never kept the ball rolling, thus the crowed just always ended up dying. I enjoy Ricardo's entertainment tactics, but would still prefer Del Rio.
For me, it all started... haha, check me out, it's like I'm in a Ricardo-aholics group therapy, hahaha...
For me it started when I realised that Ricardo Rodriguez was a great little heel-gimmick. I mean, come on, the audacity of Del Rio having his own personal ring announcer. And Ricardo was fantastic at his job. He announced the SH*T out of Del Rio week in week out. His facial expressions were great too.
But then, someone makes a thread about Ricardo Rodriguez being a porn star and that was it... I loved him after that. Every time I saw his smug face on WWE TV, I just had to laugh.
Then someone makes an appreciation thread, Tyrion Lannister makes a reference to Chuck Norris, and the rest, as they say, is history
Interesting Fact: There used to be a street named after Ricardo Rodriguez, but it had to have it's name changed, because no one crosses Ricardo Rodriguez and lives!
ive been arguing on twitter for months - wrestling fans are so fickle - we all loved seth at the start of the year - we have wanted him to be face of the company for years - now after 6 months of bad booking - none of which was his fault - the fans turn on him - yes he sent a few bad tweets -...
