Rey Mysterio: World Heavyweight Champion One More Time?

Why he should be World Heavyweight Champion

Everybody talked about how CM Punk, Jeff Hardy, and Chris Jericho had an awesome year in 2009. But not many people mentioned Rey Mysterio's accomplishments. He lasted 41 minutes in the 2009 Royal Rumble. Rey nearly won the elimination chamber to become World Champion and he was the only reason that match was great. Rey won the Intercontinental Championship from JBL and retired him at Wrestlemania 25. He had one of the best feuds of the year with Chris Jericho which also helped raise the prestige of the Intercontinental Championship. He made a star out of Dolph Ziggler. He lost the gold to John Morrison in the best match Smackdown has had in years. He constantly performed incredibly with people much bigger then him such as Batista, Undertaker, and Kane and people the same size such as Chris Jericho, John Morrison, and Jeff Hardy. He's also been a contender for the World Championship, Unified Tag Team Championship, and Intercontinental Championship.

Royal Rumble 2010

Now all of this brings me to the 2010 Royal Rumble at the Royal Rumble it's rumored that Rey Mysterio will face Batista and The Undertaker in a triple threat match for the World Championship. I say why not let Mysterio win the World Championship. Undertaker can move very slowly due to his nagging injuries and Batista's had the gold a little too much. Rey Mysterio never fails to impress anybody and constantly performs magnificently night after night on Smackdown. Even if it is until Elimination Chamber where Batista wins the World Championship back from Rey. Rey deserves to be champion once more before he retires from the WWE and that time is at the Rumble.
