I want him to return at the rumble to continue their feud. Zayn comes out a few spots after Owens, they have a short standoff where Owens can't believe he's back, since in his mind he was positive he put Zayn down for good. At that point the shit is on, with Zayn getting the better of the exchange and eliminating Owens. Since Zayn doesn't care about the RR win, he then does his plancha over the top rope onto Owens, eliminating himself before they fight to the back. Now the RR has spun off a new angle in addition to the usual one where the winner goes on to the RTWM.
SZ is gunning for KO and knows that keeping him from a title shot is one of the most effective ways to get to him.
The RTWM continues with KO retaining at Fast Lane via screwy finish and Zayn going over for the IC at WM32. The main limiting factor I see is the notion that mainstream fans don't know their history from NXT, much less the indies.
It will be hard for people to get the relevance when it happens at the rumble so it will most likely fall flat. The key will be a solid plan to promote the program with vignettes, interviews, and video packages before Vince pulls the plug because he thinks it isn't working.
