The Wrestling Observer is reporting that WWE decided to give Rey Mysterio the World Title at last night’s Fatal Four Way PPV for several reasons. The first is that the company was reportedly unhappy with Jack Swagger as the current Champion. It’s also being said that Mysterio takes great pride in being the Champion, and with reports of him being unhappy in WWE lately, this was a way for management to appease him. Additionally, it’s being said that plans for a month long vacation for Mysterio were scrapped when The Undertaker was side lined with an injury, so giving him a title run probably helped persuade him to stick around.
TNA has launched a new website to promote their Live Events at www.tnaliveevents.com.
