Bret Hart....and have him win it, so he can stick around for Wrestlemania.
Dude, he said JUST the Royal Rumble.
As for me, if he's only coming in for the Royal Rumble and leaving right afterwards, I'd say Ultimate Warrior. I'd love to SEE the guy again, but I sure don't want to see him WRESTLING again. Running around like a goof and shaking the ropes for a little while would be enough of a nostalgia trip for me, thank you very much.
"You people have been led to believe that mediocrity is excellence. Uh-uh.
Honestly, my pick woulda been Mr. Perfect. That's why I'm thrilled they've actually announced him as being in it! Too bad we prolly won't see the PerfectPlex though. Doesn't seem to be a move you'd use in a over the top elimination match.
So since he's already gonna be in it, I'd like to see the Sandman or New Jack. Can you imagine Jack busting out the can o' plunder with a dozen other guys in the ring?
SD "Special Delivery" Jones. My all time favorite face jobber. They could bring him into the ring with the cover of "Land of 1000 Dances" from "The Wrestling Album," and I would mark out. BTW, anybody else remember how he used to be intro'd as hailing from "The City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia" up until early 1985, when everyone was beginning to get the silly gimmick treatment, and then he started wearing these bright dashiki-type shirts and headbands and was then listed as coming from "the isle of Antigua?" The reason I bring this up is that if during the dawn of the Hogan-era, someone took the time and effort to repackage a JOBBER, than why can't someone on the booking team give the fed a much needed sense of direction now?

If we can't see a Perfectplex, we should at least get one of his classic running SNAPMARES out of the deal.
Anyway, I say bring back bart Gunn to confront his newly(?)-gay brother.
The final two: Rikishi vs Kurt Hennig and they battle it out for the best 'Hennig sell' where you get hit by someone and make a summersault or flip or anything to sell it.
Or bring back Bad News Brown. Let's see how tough the guys these days really are..I am sure he can break some trophies. I seem to recall his finisher was an Enziguiri..damn that was an impressive signature move in those days!
Imagine this is some funny signature. Then I will imagine you compliment me on it.
1. One reason is the blatant hypocrisy of it. Anyone who was watching that and not trying to prove a point would agree that they tried to send a message that Eric was going to fuck Linda against her will.
