I want to see more big stars in this Rumble than we have ever seen. And so farit doesnt look to bad.
Already we have (and most of these are guesses)
The Shield: Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins
The rest of them will probably be jobbers altohugh I expect a few returns like Christian I also am not sure is any of the tag teams from that nights tag match will be joining that night (Cody Rhodes, Damian Sandow, Kane and Daniel Bryan) with them alone thats a total of 18 big(ish) stars leaving some 12 or less jobbers and mid card guys in it (people like Kofi Kingston, Khali, Tensai, R-Truth, Primo, Sin Cara, Epico, Santino, Titus O'Niel, Darren Young, 3MB (Drew, Heath and Jinder)that kinf makes up your team and if its those guys in it alone makes a pretty good rumble.
There's room for a ton more guys in the WWE. They have 3 hours of Raw, 2 hours of Smackdown, 1 hour of NXT, 1 hour of Superstars, 1 hour or Main Event and 30 minutes of Saturday Morning Slam to fill. That 8 and 1/2 hours per week, not to mention house shows and PPV's.
Rather than seeing the same old guys over and over again, re-hashing the same old matches and dragging out the same old feuds, they could hire more established guys, filter them into the shows and help the younger guys learn and get over.
Y2J - In an ideal world, he would win the Rumble & go on to face Ziggler for the WHC at Mania, then win and have a final 6-month reign
Mark Henry - His last run was ruined a bit by his injuries, if he could come back 100%, I'd like to see him complete that push before retiring with glory
Batista/Vader - Just for the pop
But if there weren't so many fucking jobbers in the Rumble (3MB? Really? REALLY??), then there could be room for all the guys you mentioned.
