• Former WWE Personality Says Vince McMahon Told Him To Be More Hispanic
Ricardo Rodriguez was former WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio’s personal ring announcer.
During an interview on the Cheap Heat Productions podcast, Ricardo was asked if he ever received any advice from Vince McMahon.
Below is what Ricardo said:
“The only real advice that he gave me was, and I quote, ‘No, not like that. Be more Hispanic.’ I still don’t know what that means!
The very first time that I did the rehearsal for the intro thing, I was thinking very formal, very Tony Chimel, Justin Roberts…formal…Howard Finkel.
I thought of the guys from AAA, the announcers from AAA, which are very loud, and then I thought eventually of the soccer announcers that are in Spanish.
I’m a big football/soccer fan, but if you watch it in English versus when you watch it in Spanish, it’s two completely different vibes.”
