Talent roster was huge during the AE. Peak level. Punk is barely promoted NOW, when the talent pool is at an all-time low and someone is claiming that he would have been anything above a low card performer? Comedy. What Punk does now is to say "controversial on purpose" statements for the "AWWW" reaction in a minority of the fanbase. This was an ordinary thing back then all over the industry. Only place Punk could have been in is ECW around 2000.
As for that Taka/HHH match, it was a top of the hour match. Great TV match. Started 5.7, ended 6.0 but wasn't Top 3 of the night back then.
BTW, Big Show got the title because he was doing good business, not because he was just a random guy. He had one of the most promoted feuds of the year with Bossman before SVS 1999 when he got the belt.
The Clay/Punk match shouldn't be a problem, only important aspect of the Rumble PPV promotion is Rock's title chase. To make it the most important thing in his life and with this money line: "Fact: You ain't God. But God as my witness, in 13 days I WILL beat you for the WWE Title". He basically covered it. They just need to promote it as much as possible along with the Rumble concept.
