I'm not sure why it's so hard to believe that they let him win. Up until that point, he was a loyal WWE superstar that provided many great matches for the promotion. Rey was HUGELY popular at the time and perhaps the biggest draw in Mexico to come from the States, so it was a no brainer to let him have a go at the strap. Eddie's death might've had something to do with it, but I think it was just a matter of time before they gave him the ball.

These are dirt sheets, so take them with a grain of salt, although they sound somewhat true to me.
Kurt Angle wouldn't decline it. That wouldn't make any sense. Its not humility for a wrestler representing the future to beat a wrestler representing the past (Undertaker) who will always be extremely over. Seriously, it just doesn't make sense. And they ALWAYS worked well together, so it would be an all-time great match that would seriously support the card cuz there would still be two world title matches in addition to it (unless this was 2006 we're talking about, where Kurt defended the WHC).

Can't agree at all. Benoit is a better seller, had better psychology and just overall better worker. Angle resorts to the Ankle Lock and Angle Slam WAY too much. Haven't seen him in TNA (heard that he abuses the fuck out of those moves) but I find that an issue even with his WWE work.

On a microphone, Angle is definitely better, though.

Yeah, he was. He was glorifed immensely during his very first WCW matches, and he's a G-d in Mexico according to Alberto Del Rio. He's one of the greatest technical wrestlers of all time AND one of the greatest traditional luchadores, AND he's colorful and different, and the product always needs different stars so everyone has something to enjoy (and so individuals get different things out of one card).

Seriously, Rey's a legend. The fact that it took as long as it did for him to win the belt is what's surprising. Its more likely that happened after Eddie's death because that signaled the end of the SD golden age. Lesnar gone, Guerrero gone, all they had left was Angle and Taker (not knocking them). So they needed to create stars, and Mania's the time to do it.

And so what if he was a token Mexican? Mark Henry's a token giant, Ziggler's a token pretty boy (and I think one of the greatest of his generation). And if he got inserted into the position cuz Eddie died, then apparently Eddie was the token Mexican then too. John Cena's the token role model, Batista/Sheamus is the token best friend, Sheamus is kindof the token Brit (I know he's not British, but he serves the role on some level). If Benoit gets a title reign despite no microphone skills, based solely on in-ring talent, then Mysterio is just as qualified. Jack Swagger g-d damn it.

The Eddie=ploitation stuff got unnevering and hard to watch. I didn't have a problem with Rey winning the Rumble...but I did have a problem with him talking to Eddie when he drew his number for the Rumble. "Oh, you got me again Eddie!". That was just uncomfortable.

And don't even get me started on what they did with Orton. Jeez.

I agree, they went to far with Orton saying "Eddies down there, in hell"

Even the fans booed. Rey for me has to be one of the worst world champions title reign. I respect the guy for doing his thing being a midget but he's so limited.

Rey's match with Orton the week after Wrestlemania 22 automatically elevates his title reign from being one of the worst.
