“Si, Si, Si “, the catch-phrase uttered by current WWE champ on or while felling his opponents were parked on the lips of thousands that had gathered to catch a glimpse of the 6’5”, 239 wrestling royalty and each time he was sighted – be it on way to stage, going in or coming out of the media room or hoping into his ride to leave, that very phrase was rendered up in the air.
“I am a big fan of football; after WWE it’s my second love and to be welcomed on soccer field is a pleasant experience for me. I’m loving it”., said Alberto Del Rio who hails originally from San Luis Potosi, Mexico.
Though he refused to demonstrate a ‘dry’ move disappointing the horde who would have gone hoarse if he were to delve into ‘cross arm-breaker, his signature move, he did kick a soccer ball busting out a fancy footwork no less. Later at the media room the four-time champ proudly displayed his title belt to the tremendous whir of flashlights. Here he was presented with a memento, a scarf and a jersey and he returned the favor with personalized El-Classico T-shirts to the four team members present.
When IBG NSA asked which position he would prefer if he were to play soccer, “I would be the forward so that I can go and score goals”
“What about being a defender?”
“Well yes that too, why not”!
When time became ripe for him to leave, he did so to the accompanying chant of “Si, Si,Si”.
