Yeah, a very questionable Rumble win here. IMO a guy like Orton should have won it that year.

But I digress. I also agree. Rey was getting pushed hard in 2005. It was very likely that he would get a title run in '06. But he was definitely not going to win the Rumble. Had Batista not got injured, Orton would have won it, which would have been great in retrospect.

Orton would have been a good choice to drop the title to Rey at say, SummerSlam or The Bash.

I didn't have any problems with Rey Mysterio winning the Royal Rumble in 2006. Mysterio was already over with the fans at this point which would make his Royal Rumble victory understandable. How he won the Royal Rumble match irks me a little bit with him drawing #2 and lasting 62:12 minutes in the Royal Rumble match. I thought that was a little bit too much and a little over-the-top but I still didn't mind it as much.


Although I didn't have any problems with Rey Mysterio winning, I would've rather seen Taker win and go on to face Kurt Angle for the World Heavyweight title at WrestleMania 22. Rey Mysterio vs Randy Orton would have been another good match for WrestleMania 22 as well. I have no idea why they didn't go this route instead of wasting two of those Take-Angle and Rey-Orton matches on a filler No Way Out PPV.

I thought that was a tiny gem of an entertaining angle. He carried that underdog gimmick beautifully. It was fun till it lasted.

06 was pretty awesome. I consider it as a transition year where we see midcarders finally becoming certified main-eventers: Cena, Edge, Rey, Orton, RVD. The return of DX was fuckin phenomenal back then.

07 though was shitty: Rise of SuperCena, Hornswoggle getting uppercard storylines, multiple injuries... do I need to mention more?

If somebody actually says that Rey's success is only because of Eddie, they know nothing about the business.

Eh, it was a nice underdog story for a while. They went overboard a bit dragging it out after Wrestlemania but the Royal Rumble win and WHC match were both well done feel-good moments, even if they were leeching off of Eddie's death.

I know it's a bit harsh and other people are acting harsh, but at the same time it is true. It's one of those "the truth hurts" scenario.

Rey would never get the belt or a huge push like that had Eddie not died. It made for a great storyline and he rode it.

Now a good seven years later he is nothing.

You make it sound so sordid.
