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?
Yeah, I'm starting to like the idea of one world champion more and more. It's kinda like back in the days of territories. One ruling champion that all the groups are trying to unseat. Kinda cool. As for the split in general.
