Or have him tag with/endorse Ricochet for a time period. They tried to do that with Kalisto but he isn't Rey special or remotely close. Neither is Raul Mendoza in NXT.
Or maybe use him as a bargaining chip to get Neville back for a potential match/program

Nia calling out Asuka after losing to her numerous times is pretty funny. It would be like Glacier calling out Goldberg. I'm the only one who can beat you, I've scouted all your moves by being beaten up 30 times!

TOUGH GUUUUUY


I think Rey fell into the category of "ugh, him again?" toward the end of his last WWE run because, as WWE does, they just recycle the same few people and cram 'em all down our throats until we want to blow our brains out. That's the way it was for me, at least. Maybe it was also due to their need to make everybody a loser so you stop caring about seeing them, like winning the title and being clowned by Cena and losing it in the same night. It all just becomes so tiresome.

Rey obviously badly needed time off for the last like year+ of his run and it affected his ringwork but he didn't want to take any time off because WWE was threatening to basically extend his contract by the amount of time he missed.

At least I think that's how it happened?

I remember the Kane/Mysterio series between surprisingly good, but that was mostly because Kane rag-dolled him around the arena which was awesome.

So someone did some number crunching on some wrestlers for 2017, and holy poo poo Nia's win rate is abysmal. 14.1% in 2017. The third lowest in the main roster Women's Division. The only people lower are Tamina and Carmella.

I'm glad that this meshes well with her being promoted as the woman's braun

E: I posted that before seeing the promo where they show her throwing women around while saying her entrance lyrics in a threatening voice

I used to not like Rey a lot because I was a teenager and was in that period of like"uugggh this guy all the kids like uuuuggggh". And while I don't like his 619 splash compared to what it used to be, I know now I was a dumb kid and that Rey is cool.

That was what kicked off the Mayweather/Big Show angle, right? Man that Mania match was so much better than I thought it would be.

Also remember the "Dave.... you're hurting me!" thing from Rey/Batista?

Someone posted this on Reddit, but it was pretty neat to see, but here's a much greener/younger Asuka practicing various submission holds.

She's probably one of the most technical wrestlers on the roster, and I can see WWE keeping her around as a trainer at the Performance Center once she decides to retire.
