Love me some Truth but wasn't this Summer of Punk? Not sure how he would have fit.

i think when, alberto was the champion after summerslam he could've replaced his role by winning the belt at hell in the cell and dropping the title to punk at survivor series, then the present timeline resumes

Re: R Truth should've been champion in 2011

No and the main reason is timing as @bradater states. They were building to best (CM Punk vs John Cena) and the biggest (Rock vs Cena) matches of the era. Cena could not lose to R-Truth. If you want to make him transitional Miz > Truth > Cena then fine, but I'm still not sure the timing works 100% without going over the matches.

Even with better timing and even though I like R Truth, I'm not everyone is made for that role. Not everyone gets to be WWE champion.

R truth is probably the greatest comedic wrestler the WWE has ever had.
He has constantly kept himself fresh and reinserted himself into tv time, every time he became irrelevant.

But I doubt he would ever be a main event guy.
I will say this though. The guy is really under appreciated. He can be both funny and serious. His heel turn on John Morrisson should be in the top 5 heel turns. His acting and timing was top notch, especially his "Why did you make me do this!" Look.

Yeah, he could of I suppose. Del Rio was nothing special.

Sorry, originally I thought you meant early 2011 as Truth was hotter and in the WWE title picture. If we get past the timing issue though, I still think he was never WWE Championship material. I fear we would look back on him the same way we do Swagger, Sheamus etc. Cena vs Truth for the WWE Championship was extremely forgettable.
