I'm torn on this one. I can see the points of those who hate this gimmick or feel it's unnecessary, but on the other hand, what was left for Tito as himself? His time as a tltleholder/main eventer in the WWF had been over for three years at least. He'd settled down in New Jersey, so he wasn't going to WCW, and ECW, even if he'd wanted to go there, was two years away. It was either this or schlep around the Northeastern indies, which were the very definition of the term "sorry lot". He probably thought that Vince would push him a hell of a lot harder as El Matador than what ended up happening, although he still had a few shining moments left in the not-too-distant future. He's not really a good emoter, though, so these vignettes are bound to suffer in comparison to those featuring guys with more charisma and ability to project.

 

It could have been worse; he could have been repackaged as a taco salesman from Tijuana named Chico. (Boy, do I miss The Body!)
