Alberto Del Rio recently spoke with ESPN.com about a variety of topics. Check out the highlights:
On the difference between wrestling in Mexico and the US: "I can say that I'm a better wrestler now that I'm in WWE because the way we work in WWE is totally different than what you see anywhere else. Here, we work with logic, and there's a reason for everything we do in the ring. Whether it's a dropkick or a punch, there's a reason for everything. Lucha Libre style is beautiful, but in Lucha Libre, we just do things because it looks pretty, or it looks spectacular, but there's no logic or anything. That's why I think I'm a better wrestler now."
On his first WrestleMania: "It was incredible. Everything for me I've done in WWE is new. I did my first ladder match, my first TLC match, my first WrestleMania, my first cage match. I'm enjoying every single day in WWE because now I'm a global superstar. In Mexico, I was just a superstar, now I'm a global star because of WWE."
On his favorite gimmick match so far: "My favorite was the cage match because I enjoy working with Christian. Christian is an incredible performer and my cage match against him is one of my favorite matches."
On trying to live his gimmick a la Ted DiBiase: "I heard about that, so I told Vince and Johnny (Ace) the other day, "Why don't you guys give me some money for when I'm at fancy restaurants and hotels?" They just laughed."
