As far as his talent as a wrestler, he is very talented. He has a lot of technical skill. He is a very good mat wrestler as well as a decent high flyer. He also has good mic skills. But... he is way too full of himself. He can be an arrogant *sshole at times. And too often he has to rely on Ricardo's help in order to win a match. That really takes away from his true ability. Also, it would be nice to see him come up with another finisher besides just the Cross Arm Breaker. That move is getting real boring. Most other guys at least have 2-3 good finishers. In the beginning I didn't like him at all, but I have grown to at least appreciate his skill. Even if he is a jerk!
He's very talented, but his character really bothers me. He just doesn't seem to pull it off right... If you compare him to other "rich guy" gimmicks like JBL, Del Rio really falls short. His music hits, and there's little to no reaction, most of the time.
This gimmick was originally Ricardo Rodriguez's. I don't know why they gave it to Del Rio, but in my honest opinion, Ricardo pulls off the whole thing better (in his FCW promos). I love heels, but... he just doesn't do it for me.
I think that Alberto needs to change his character and maybe even turn face. But that's just my opinion.
Overall hes a good wrestler, but he is very arrogant, cocky, and he talks alot of smack but i dnt really think it matters if most of the time he can back it up espically in the ring. He does whats he has to do and thats it (and you gotta luv his cars).
