After dealing with alcohol abuse problem for several years, on May 3rd 2020 I finally went and got myself checked in to a rehab center. I needed to change for many reasons.

Ricardo Rodriguez made his WWE debut in 2010 as the special ring announcer of Alberto Del Rio. Their partnership lasted three years before they went their separate ways. Rodriguez joined the Spanish announce team afterward as well.
He was trained as a wrestler and worked sporadic matches for WWE, usually as a comedy character. He has continued to work matches since leaving WWE with his last match occurring in 2017.
From everyone at WrestleTalk, we would like to congratulate Ricardo Rodriguez on his achievement and wish him all the best going forward.
