From the Archives: 2006 Royal Rumble

Rey Mysterio is the least likely Royal Rumble winner of all-time. He bucked Vince McMahon's alleged size fetish, and shattered the illusion that cruiserweight wrestlers could only stay in the cruiserweight division in a credible fashion. Of course, his run in this Rumble and towards WrestleMania was a blatant pander to the memory of Eddie Guerrero, but hey, Mysterio is undoubtedly one of the greatest in-ring performers ever. At least he got some kind of due.
