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 think we can all agree that Angle has been in a suck-ass storyline or two, and, while his average match quality is head and shoulders above just about anyone else working today, no-one can have a ***** match every time.
