That didn't necessarily have anything to do with the world title match actually being the biggest match on the card.
In 96, Bret vs Taker was the main, that's plausible.
In 97, since that was held in HBKs hometown, HBK vs Sid as the main was reasonable.
In 98, they did HBK vs Taker in the main for one reason only, to close the show with kane setting the casket on fire
In 06, again only reason Angle vs Henry went on last was to portray Takers magical powers.
If next year we Punk vs Rock on last, there'll be a really good reason behind it.
On the other hand, I wouldn't say that the Rumble match will be a midcard Rumble. There is a lot of potential in a Rumble match if they give a fuck about it which I don't think will be the case.
But anyway, look at the possible entries next year: Lesnar, Taker, Triple H, Cena, Ryback, Orton, Bryan, Kane, Miz, Del Rio, Show, Sheamus, Mysterio
