    Sami Zayn should get eliminated by Kevin Owens (who i wouldn't put in the rumble) for the same reason.
    Set up some mania matches for the hardcores because Hunter vs Reigns and Brock vs Bray Wyatt isn't doing it.
    Or they set up potential matches for AJ Styles the next night on RAW for Wrestlemania. One way it will be cool if AJ debuts tonight. But then ya have the angry reaction from fans if he gets eliminated.

    I have to believe they have an actual plan for AJ.
    This isn't a nxt guy making 60k a year, this is a guy they planned for the main roster, he has to have a mania match and it isn't against Mark Henry.

    Beyond say , R-Truth , I doubt anyone is making below that $80,000 a year. Sure they have plans for AJ. If its tonight , great ...if its tomorrow awesome. Either way hopefully the booking works and its not crappy.

    Agreed.

    In my fantasy world, they'd push Nakamura and give him the belt by July. Then at Summerslam it's Lesnar vs Nakamura for the title.

    A title match worth seeing.

    If they're hypothetically looking for an opponent to set up a feud for AJ at the Rumble (and honestly I doubt they are), the first person that actually popped in my head was Taker.

    He's one of the few people the crowd won't turn on if he eliminates a debuting AJ, and they can feud over the term "phenom."

    If nothing else it gives Taker someone to beat at Wrestlemania.

    Though I'm sure if Taker were in town the net would have spoiled it by now so I'm assuming none of this is actually the case.

    Rumble is often my favorite PPV of the year. Even though it's arguably a crappy match in terms of actual wrestling, there's something about it which I've always found fun ever since I was a kid.

    Hopefully the WWE can somewhat salvage this event as the last couple have been somewhat train wrecks.

    I think the best bet for a feud for AJ will be with Jericho. So I'm hoping that they eliminate each other in the Rumble. I just hope that if AJ is part of the Rumble he comes in early ,and stays at least until the final 6. This is a big preview for how he will be used. IF he's just thrown out by Ryback, then we/and AJ maybe, may be regretting his leaving NJPW.

    Taker probably will face Owens.

    I would put Styles in a program with Del Rio. AJ Styles wouldnt have to do much on the mic except play the America card. Easy for the crowd tp get behind.
