If Helmsley does show up in the Rumble, where is the proper place for his appearance. One seems to early, forty seems to late. I imagine they give him an early 30's slot when the last of the main eventers usually show up, but wouldn't bringing him in around 5-7 be a big way to jump start the Rumble, get fans juiced, allow him to throw out a bunch of guys while not having to win the whole thing because of the number drawn?
It's BECAUSE of the Benoit thing this was a good week for actual wrestling matches. Watching a wrestling show and not seeing endless recaps of a limo exploding or jabbering about the owner of the company was an awfully good time.
