Ever since they started the first PPV Rumble (the very first Rumble, won by Hacksaw Jim Duggan and "highlighted" by Dino Bravo's weightlifting. lol) with Ax and Smash, there've been some pretty intriguing 1v2 matchups to start the Rumble.

So what's the thinking on who would be best placed at the #2 spot in the Rumble? Cena perhaps? Or maybe Jericho, for a Canadian Chrisses reunion?

Jericho would be cool, but I think they'd save him for later in the Rumble. If they really plan to give Benoit the Diesel push, I could see them having Benoit eliminate the first few people to follow him in order to help get the crowd into him. Which would make #2 someone disposable -- maybe Rene Dupree or one of TWGTT.

s'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
a persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
ma percoche giammai di questo fondo
non torno vivo alcun, s'i'odo il vero,
senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo.

It's going to be one of the large mid-carders from Smackdown. A-Train, Morris, or Bradshaw. Benoit needs to get one of them out quick to establish that he is going to be a force.

Who's gonna be number 2? (AKA who will Benoit dump first)

My bet is Matt Morgan, to set Benoit on a roll in the Rumble.

It is time to renew the Benoit/Jericho rivalry of the past, so Y2J gets my number 2 slot.

Damn you WWE for making me change my sig. I'm sure you have good enough reasons to get rid of Shannon, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. Let me thus be the first to say: BRING BACK DAFFNEY!

Definitely a heel... probably a large one who's been getting a big push... and I'd venture to say that they'd use one from the RAW side right off the bat, since the talent pool on that side of the roster is deeper. So I'm thinking Mark Henry... although Rhyno could be an interesting possibility as well, due to their history and the mini-push he's been getting the past couple of weeks. Heyman's hell-bent on screwing Benoit over, so who better to start out with than the GM's most prized wrestler recently?

With only two exceptions (last year with Michaels at #1 and in 1995 with Jimmy Del Rey at #5), the man who draws #2 or #3 is always the first man eliminated.

Wait…if it’s MLK Jr. Day AND Pat Patterson’s Birthday…who gets the token win here?-- Matt "Excalibur05" Hocking on a match between Mark Henry and Rico

MH: What’s a clever way to say that I have a penis?
CJ: Uh…Mark, nobody’s going to buy that shirt.
MH: How about if I say that I’ve got…a…uh…?
CJ: Coming up with T-Shirt ideas is hard Mark, why not leave it to the WWE marketing department.
MH: I know! I’ve got it!
CJ: Got what?
MH: Stank! That’s Mah Stank! I’m gonna make a fortune!!
CJ: “That’s Mah Stank”?
MH: On the front it’ll say “Can You Smell It?” and on the back it’ll say “That’s Mah Stank”. Everybody’ll buy it because they’ll think it’s a Rock shirt.
CJ: You know…you might be on to something there, sad to say.
MH: I can’t wait to show mah stank to Trish.

You know, I have a feeling that Spanky didn’t quit, he was fired. Why? So they could repackage Mark Henry as “Stanky.” Think about THAT!

I gotta believe it'll be someone from RAW, because you just know that JR and The King will wet themselves yelling about how "This is the first time in 15 years that RAW Superstars and Smackdown Superstars have faced each other in the same match"

The coolest #2 is either Cena or Angle, so that's who it BETTER be. I want to see Benoit & somebody duke it out for the ENTIRE match.
