Mysterio's Push: Should it Have Gone to Chavo?
Most of you remember back in late 2005-2006 when Rey Mysterio received a push shortly after Eddie Guerrero's death. He was supposed honor the Guerrero name by carrying it into immortality, or something. This resulted in Rey getting a reign as World Champion, and doing many things to honor Eddie, such as coming out to the ring in low riders, and wearing Eddie Guerrero shirts and wristbands. My question is, should this push have belonged to Chavo Guerrero?
Many see Chavo Guerrero as underrated, and if he were ever going to become a World Champion, now would have been the time to pull the plug. I think it would've made a lot more sense than giving the push to Rey Mysterio. Right after Eddie's death, Chavo gave up the "Kerwin White" gimmick and went back to his heritage and family name, while Rey and Eddie just came off of a feud that took a good chunk of a year. I personally don't think this storyline should have been done in hindsight, but if anyone was going to carry on the Guerrero name, shouldn't it have been his newphew; a member of the family? Maybe? Perhaps?
