Default 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?

To be honest.... no, and I will tell you why. Chavo is his nephew and Rey was his best friend. Of course Chavo would do things to honor Eddie but having someone so close to the family and not being blood related was the right hook if you ask me.

No, I don't think it would have worked. Rey is a lot more marketable than Chavo with his masks and his high flying moves, and he already had developed a huge fanbase among the kids. Chavo did not have quite the charisma to be a world champion. He would not have drawn like Rey.

That storyline never should have happened. But to answer your question, Rey Mysterio deserved to be World Champion and Chavo didn't.

I never been a fan of Rey Mysterio but he should of got the main-event push. I love Chavo and the Guerrero family is my favourite family in wrestling history. It's just Chavo Guerrero is not a main-eventer, Rey Mysterio is way more over with the crowd then Chavo. And I don't think WWE could of pushed Chavo to the main-event and make it believable enough for the viewing audience. WWE did a great job at pushing Rey even though a lot of the fans considered his push a joke. Everybody loved Rey. He deserved that push and he was also Eddie Guerrero's best friend and a very talented athlete. He was always one of the most popular guys in WWE and he accomplished way more then I thought he would when he was back in WCW. I personally don't understand the appeal of Rey Mysterio. I don't get what people see in him. Then again I'm sure If I was a little kid I would have a different mid set.

Was Chavo over like Mysterio? No. Mysterio is a bigger star in Mexico the Chavo. No, absolutely not.

Exactly! I dont ever remember Rey Mysterio being in TNA and Chavo dosen't join till next week. I rarely watch WWE these days and if I wanted to discuss it, I'd go in the WWE forums. Will some mod please move this?

No because, quite honestly, Chavo isn't that special or main event worthy. He is an all around solid talent, but there is nothing about him that truly stands out. Rey you can put in the spotlight and he'll stand out.

One of the reasons why I don't like Mysterio is because he pretty much used Eddie's death as a way of getting him over and becoming champion.
As for the question, nahh..Chavo wasn't popular and Mysterio had bigger fanbase.

Hell no. Rey Mysterio was and is the all around better talent. Pushing him over Chavo was a smart move.
