Personally I like him a lot, as a fighter and a person, granted he hasn't exactly covered himself in glory since he retired (the Cocaine scandal etc) but I loved his aggressive style in the ring and I loved his "normal bloke down the pub" type personality, as in all honesty, that's just what I'm like
Now, i'm not looking to argue about Ricky with any of you, everyone's entitled to an opinion and i'm not particularly bothered if people like him or not, But I am curious as to the reasons.
So if you don't like Ricky, why?
You will find that most true and reasonable fans of the sport feel like you do. He's a likable character who is exciting to watch (win or lose) and has that warrior spirit. Whats not to like?
But this is ESB and there are a bunch of naysayers on here. Ignore them, they are ****s.
