Unbelievable

Spoiler Alert Warning....


I cannot believe they would just have Great Khali squash Rey Mysterio, and in his hometown to boot. This has to be the most breathtakingly dumb booking decision by WWE in years, and that statement speaks volumes. Where to even start? First, you've got a PPV you are trying to sell. And the new route to promoting PPVs seems to be to have the main eventers lose and lose and lose cleanly. Because people are anxious to pay to see losers square off to see who is the bigger loser. Second, you've got Rey Mysterio being buried based on size over and over again and treated like a joke, when he is a hell of a talent and should be booked much more carefully. Third, there's the fact that he is your champion and it totally buries the title. Fourth, and perhaps most irritating to me, is the continuing push of a man who cannot wrestle and will not be with the company within 2 years. Nothing reflects the company's ineptitude these days more than the guys they choose to push and the guys they choose to bury. Ugh.

You're absolutely right, not that you needed any reinforcement on that as its frighteningly obvious. Specifically, I agree with it being the worst booking decision in years; actually, I'd say it's the worst booking of the champion at least in company history. There have been poor choices for champions (Nash, Big Show circa 2000, etc.), unprofessional champions (HHH, HBK), but nothing as bafflingly stupid as this.

I don't understand it, if everyone else can see what a dumb decision it is why can't WWE? Does someone have it in for Rey or is this just the usual WWE prejudice to small wrestlers coming across in a big way?

I totally agree. And how many non-title matches are the going to put him in. So he loses every week and never puts the title on the line. Stupid booking that makes him look like a chump. I've been a big supporter of Smackdown and the wrestling on the show, but the booking of the World Title since Kurt Angle won it has been incredibly bad.

Not only is Rey not a "WWE" guy, but he's also smaller than guys like Benoit and Eddie. So he's doomed I guess. I am a bit surprised though. I thought they were saving Rey's title reign one day for something big. Now he's just being buried - at a time they need him the most.

I'm surprised nobody has pointed out the obvious: the reason for this move is so that Khali is "strong" for his match with the Undertaker. The reason for Mark Henry beating Mysterio clean last week (and beating him senseless in the process) is so that he's "strong" for his match with Angle. Basically, they're treating Angle and Taker as the real main eventers and making their feuds seem more important than the Champion's. As a result, Mysterio has to job clean in the middle of the ring to talentless jokes like Mark Henry and that other douchebag Khali. The people running that show are really clueless.

I just don't understand it myself. Why are they doing this? How can you make YOUR World Champion job out against two big stiffs? Did Hulk Hogan, HBK, or HHH job when they were Champion? That wouldn't make sense would it? I just don't think he has the influences that other WWE Champions have and that shows that he doesn't have power or say in the WWE.
