My own sentimental hope to win the Rumble is RVD, and to be honest, I wouldn't be surprised to see a Raw-brand guy win. Simply because the Smackdown side's Mania title match(Angle vs. Lesnar) seems to be already set in stone, whereas the Raw side doesn't seem to have anything set up beyond Triple H vs. Scott Steiner.

This year's Rumble looks like it could be a lot more interesting, simply because the winner isn't blatantly obvious. Theoretically, the winner could come from EITHER side of the roster, and even if Brock doesn't win, he could still end up with the title shot at Angle at Mania.
(Likely scenario: Brock and *insert Raw-brand guy, either RVD or Booker* are the last two in the Rumble. Team Angle runs interference to cause Brock to be eliminated, seemingly screwing him out of the title shot, but Steph rules that since Brock was the last Smackdown guy in the match, he still gets the title shot for his side of the roster.)

There are several favorites on the Raw side, and the mini-Rumble on Monday night did a good job of establishing those favorites: Jericho, RVD, Bautista(somehow I don't see Steiner vs. Bautista headlining Mania ), Kane, and Michaels. Add Booker T as well. However, the Smackdown side boils down to whoever wins Brock vs. Big Show, Undertaker(who's most likely the fifteenth participant from the SD side), and MAYBE Edge(huge longshot). And Taker doesn't have sufficient recent history with Angle, so he's out.

(Most likely Taker returns and somehow costs Show his match to Brock, avenging Show's attack from a few months ago, then Show interjects himself into the Rumble to bring about Taker's elimination.)

In undercard stuff, I'm hoping Storm/Regal retain and they wait to blow off that feud at Mania in a hardcore match or something.

Just one man's opinion.

Lance Storm had a neat idea for a 'Mania match against the Dudley Boyz.

    What about a table match with the Flags painted on them and you have to put the guy through the table with his fag on it.

RAW's side of the WM main event doesn't look promising and it doesn't look like they've figured it out yet. Since RAW's main event is anything BUT set in stone, tonight isn't exactly the night to make everything concrete, so I think they should just put Brock over so RAW's crew can put something together for WM. RAW needs to think things through more.

Of course, if they have a plan already, I guess they should start running with it tonight, but if there's anything we've learned from the RAW crew, they don't. :)

Brock wins clean, good so far.

Dudleys win the tag titles. Does this mean we'll have to go through another title switch to a heel team so they can do ANOTHER blowoff at Mania?

Torrie vs. Dawn. Err...yeah.

Wow, the audience turned on that Triple H vs. Steiner match, didn't they? (looks at Triple H unconscious and bloody post-match) *innocently* Well, Triple H put somebody over, happy? The fun part is that apparently we'll get to see this match AGAIN in the future.

Angle vs. Benoit ruled, 'nuff said.

Speaking of people being willing to put other people over, Shawn Michaels did more to make Jericho look like a big deal in the first couple of minutes of the Rumble than anyone has in forever. Jericho got this year's endurance record AND eliminated the most people(six).

Nice subplots to the Rumble like Edge/Christian, Hardy/Hardy, RVD/Kane(even though the guy I was rooting for got to look like a COMPLETE IDIOT for trusting Kane), Brock/Team Angle, and even Rikishi/Island Boys. Booker went out WAY too anticlimatically.

Anywho, good show overall, IMO.
