Re: WWE's massive mistake in 2006

i think a few things came into play when making the decsion to pick Rey
Eddies death yes played a HUGE role but only because it was circumstantial to the time that WWE wanted to make Rey one of the "faces" of SD like Taker
the 2006 Royal Rumble only had about 6-8 plausible guys who WWE could have won (rey included)
They wanted to build up that "ultimate underdog" name that Cole was screaming every 5 seconds
In the end I dont believe looking back on it he should have won but hey its in the past
