This one is different. The connection between becoming a matador and attaining success in the WWF could make some sense if there were a Ross or someone who could really get the athletic requirements over, but it just comes off as spurious and lazy here. Santana's narration isn't helping matters.

The worst part of the gimmick was that Tito didn't change his in-ring style at all that I can remember, which rendered the whole expensive exercise, vignettes and all, kind of pointless. According to Tito, Vince spent a sizable sum of money to actually send him for bullfighting lessons. Tito didn't say how good he got at bullfighting or even if he actually fought a bull (I'd tend to doubt it), but he at least supposedly learned their footwork and their attitude, among other things. As I just said, though, very little of this knowledge actually showed up in the ring that I could see. He might have been better off declining the push and living out the next couple of years as the nineties' answer to S.D. Jones.
