Alberto Del Rio On Ditching His Mask: “It Was Really Hard”

Nick Paglino

WWE Smackdown star Alberto Del Rio recently did an interview for SLAM! Wrestling. During the interview, when asked if it was difficult for him to adapt to wrestling in WWE without a mask, Del Rio said, "I’m going to be totally honest with you, it was really hard. I feel great now, but at the beginning it was really difficult because I had wrestled with that mask for over 10 years everywhere, Mexico, Japan, Europe and at the beginning it was hard because you’re not used to selling your expressions. But I was there in FCW with guys like Norman (Smiley), Dr. Tom Pritchard, with Dusty Rhodes, and they helped me a lot. They helped me all the way. I think there’s a reason I’m doing such a good job here in WWE." You can check out the full interview at THIS LINK.
