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.
The swerve might have been dumb but he was still over after that, he could have been salvaged. I think the bigger problem is the last few weeks he's be regulated to six man tag matches with scrubs like Billy Gunn and Beer Money.
