Re: WWE's massive mistake in 2006
We'll never know if Eddie's death really did play a reason as to why Mysterio won the 2006 Royal Rumble. For all we know, the plan all along may have been for Mysterio to win the Royal Rumble, and go on to win the World Title at Wrestlemania 22. We don't know that for sure, I'm just saying.
As for the writers having Mysterio say everything he did after was for Eddie, and Orton saying "Eddie is in hell" and The chances of Myterio beating me as as good as Eddie coming back to life", or something like that, was just distasteful if you ask me.
They should have just had Mysterio win the Royal Rumble, then maybe say he did it for Eddie, and him winning the World Title was for Eddie, but that's it. They didn't have to use Eddie's name as part of the underdog storyline.
