Justified? Or over the top?

So...The guy has to relinquish his title to Samoa Joe due to injury and he takes a brief time out , then returns to request an 'open challenge' rather than be the one who challenges Joe back or Ricochet for his title he just "gave up". Then, to top it off, he gets decimated by Bobby Lashley.

Re: Thoughts on REY getting squashed?

Rey should 100% be putting people over right now. Although, I feel like this isn't using Rey to his fullest. Can't believe the WWE wasn't able to put together a competent Andrade vs Rey feud. That felt so obivous and easy to do (although maybe the WWE realized that casuals wouldn't care...but my argument to that is you MAKE them care)

the brand split sucks

Don't care. Didn't care for him during his first 'run' and certainly don't care about him in 2019.

That's a good point. That was a lackluster attempt with regards to a Rey n Andrade angle

You're perfect, yes, it's true. But without me you're only you

He had it coming. He is unreliable, can't make it a full year without an injury or two. Why invest in a guy who is a proven injury magnet? He needs to retire.

No idea why they re-signed him in the first place.

Re: Thoughts on REY getting squashed?

He should be putting people over at this stage. But, getting squashed isn't a good way to do it as sooner or later beating that person becomes meaningless.

Kind of like how they were using Show and then Ziggler to put people over. But, before long both of them had lost so many matches that a win against them didn't mean anything. It didn't give anyone a "rub" because their stock had fallen so far.

Rey isn't in that category..yet. He should be putting people over. But, still winning enough that a win against him means something..

Awful, but I don't even care anymore. It was up there with all the other crappy things that happened last night on Raw.

How long is his contract for then? I understand he was squashed to put over Bobby Lashley but for me it just didn't seem right for some reason something felt off like as if maybe this was them writing Rey Mysterio off of TV just as he came back
