Seems like as good a place as any to have the Outsiders "invade" and participate by taking out another team (The Hardys? Christian/Storm?) and wrestling in their stead. Or they could simply enter it without removing anyone else, thus getting them over as monsters by taking out all the other teams.
That way, by wrestling logic, they're a lock for a title shot.
If they do make an appearnce here (and I was thinking the same thing) I think it would be towards the end of the match, and they would do a run-in and completely destroy whoever is left in the ring. I don't see them being "officially" invloved in the match.
I think they'll probably go after Austin. Austin will be out of the title picture and his time leading up to Wrestlemania will be about getting even with the NWO. I think he'd be better used doing that than giving him yet another title match at Wrestlemania.
Though the Rock isn't in the title picture right now so it might be worthwhile to have him in that role instead.
I really doubt they'll play a role in the tag team ranks until Wrestlemania.

Oh my god, that Shield vs Rhodes match was a lot of fun. Aside from that, this was a fairly filler quality PPV, with nothing really moving forward, but it was still worth watching to see Dusty do the Bionic Elbow.
