I'd like to see Zach in the Royal Rumble, if only so Batista can hammer-throw him into the sixth row. They can't release Zach until they've done that spot, but once someone finally uses it they can fire him for all I care.
Seriously, though...when you know guys like Rhyno, O'Haire, Spanky, London, and Ultimo Dragon are going to get the shaft and sit the Rumble out, there's no room for an uninteresting novelty act like Zach Gowen. He had his fifteen minutes, and I'm glad they're letting them be over.
I realize Booker didn't actually feud with the nWo way back when. Booker's heat with nWo is really along the lines of him getting held back in WCW while all the big pushes and storylines revolved around Hogan/Bischoff/Nash.
