Iconic Quotes From Alberto Del Rio

“I always had fun with my great friend Rey Mysterio Jr. I think it would be fantastic to have my very last match against someone like him because my very first match in WWE was against Rey Mysterio Jr. I know that all the pro wrestling fans, in particular the Mexican fans, would love to see Rey Mysterio against me for my very last match.”

“I learned from many people. I became a better wrestler thanks to my matches with Edge, with Christian, with Rey Mysterio, with John Cena – who, even though you, the fans, want to criticize him, John Cena is one of the best wrestlers of the universe.”

“Putting yourself in the ring to wrestle – create those emotions, ups and downs within the match – one moment dominates the one, and one moment dominates the other, and without having created a choreography, that is the real wrestling.”

“I know all the guys in NXT have a lot of talent, and that’s the reason why they are there. But in this sport, you can see guys with a lot of talent in the minor leagues, when they move into the major leagues, they become irrelevant.”

“I once said that I never wanted to be a good guy or the ‘baby face,’ as we call it in the wrestling business. But you know, it is what it is, and I’ll be whatever they want me to be. At the end of the day, we work for the WWE fans.”

“I will stay in Impact as long as the fans want me there. They were so happy to have me there and treated me with a lot of respect. The office, talent, and staff are treated with respect by everyone, regardless of your position in the business.”

“John Cena is fantastic, seriously. I hate when people don’t give Cena the credit he deserves.”
