The main thing about 06-07 for me was how looking back on it, that time period can be considered the "dropped ball era" in WWE. Other than Cena and Orton, how many stars who were under 30 during those years, are actually in WWE today? You might think WWEs biggest mistake was one thing, but I think it's this instead.

I have always failed to understand why it upset people so much that Mysterio won the Rumble. I'm not going to be ignorant and say that Mysterio winning had nothing to do with Eddie's death, but I also have this to say about the situation: so what? One of the greatest wrestlers of all time passes away and WWE lets one of his best friends win the Rumble in his honor and wrestling fans are complaining about that? Compared to some of the other things they did after Eddie's death, I'd say having Mysterio win the Rumble was quite tasteful.

Besides, people act like Mysterio was some sort of jobber at the time. He has always been one of the top guys in the company because of his fanfare and merchandise sales and 2006 was no different. And I truly believe that if Mysterio hadn't won the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 22, he would have won it some time after that. Probably sooner rather than later. WWE probably just moved his title victory up to pay tribute to Eddie.

Another problem I have with this argument is that nobody ever seems to take issue with a similar situation that happened recently with Christian. Now, don't get me wrong, I am a huge fan of Christian and I was very happy to see him finally win the World Heavyweight Championship. However, while the situation wasn't exactly the same since Edge didn't pass away, it is in the same realm. Christian was pushed to the World Heavyweight Championship because of Edge's retirement. You could say his title reign was solely a tribute to Edge. A "thank you" from WWE. But nobody complains about that one.

Get over it already. Tribute to Guerrero or not, Mysterio deserved and merited than Rumble win.

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.

According to Rey himself, it was some time before Rumble IIRC where they called him to the office and said he was gonna become WHC. So one thing is for sure, it wasn't the plan "all along".

reading this thread has practically given me diabetes. seriously, wow. no wonder i dont bother with this section anymore

Exploiting Eddie's death? yeah, that was just plain wrong. But i dont believe Rey's push was that influenced by it. Batista was on the shelf. Eddie passed away. Rey was the next big face. The guy already beat eddie in their feud, like KingCal said and he was on his way. saying Rey only won the title because Eddie died is like saying Eddie only won the title because Brock left. Did it have some influence in both cases? ofcourse. but both men were extremely talented, over and could be considered legit draws

Angle from the start was just a placeholder. He had zero direction. Cena was holding the title forever on Raw. Orton was still recovering and finding his place. Rey was the a good choice and the reign was his chance to hit the big time

Unfortunately, the match at Wrestlemania was garbage and his reign was horrifically booked. But Rey was on his way to the top

People are too damn cynical and angry here. Calm down guys, and think

Triple H was playing the iron man in the match. Mysterio should have come in at something like 28.
GTFO here with this realism bullshit in pro wrestling.

You have a guy like the fucking Undertaker summoning fire and demons and shit, rising from the dead, appearing from God knows where, and you want to bitch about realism in WRASSLIN?

Stupid post.

I like Rey but he shouldn't have won the heavy title, much less exploiting Eddie's death. That was a disgrace.

What the actual fuck? Mysterio was already very over before Eddie died. Hell, Mysterio is one of the best wrestlers of all time, one of a kind. He deserved a World Title run, no doubt about it. Should they have done it at another moment? Probably. This was way too predictable and cheesy. But to say he didn't deserve it and has profited off of Eddie's death (like Mysterio is the one who booked the angle...) is fuckin' ridiculous.
