After winning the 2006 Royal Rumble, Rey Mysterio won the WWE World Heavyweight Title in a triple threat match from Kurt Angle and Randy Orton at WrestleMania 22.
His reign lasted 112 days before he dropped the title to King Booker (Booker T) at WWE The Great American Bash 2006.
Mysterio reflected on the title reign during an appearance on the Kurt Angle Show.
“I never took the time to work on what I needed to work on in order to back that title up and that was working on my promos or character development. In lucha, you were never taught that part of this industry. I think that’s where I dropped the ball, tremendously, on not being able to backup having the title and being able to cut promos. I’ve never really been a promo guy. I do most of my talking inside the ring and that’s what fans know me for. If I had done my end of the job, the outcome would have been different.”
