Of course you don't, which is why you're reading my post.
They should, uh, free up a slot in the Rumble (I dunno, say Albert stumped his toe or something) and announce that the loser of the Rock-Jericho match gets a slot in the Rumble match. That way, even if Jericho loses, he'll get to win the Rumble.
And to add to the above, which is sure to be an absurdity in the Bizzaro World of WWF writing, we could have the following scenario on HEAT:
[Rock and Y2J stand at the Royal Rumble Raffle Device arguing]
ROCK: I'm gonna win the World Title! But if I lose, I'm gonna win the Rumble!
Y2J: No, I'm gunna win the match! But if I lose, I'm gunna win the Rumble!
[in walks Vince McMahon]
Vince: Blablabla... [insert common self-aggrandization]... Blablabla... [draws their number - it's slot #1] Oh, and boys... [raises eyebrow evilly] Good luck in your match tonight.
So that way, even though Jericho loses the Title, he gets to put on the performance of his life, out-lasting everyone and winning the Rumble after sixity-plus minutes of classicity.
I tell ya what, I should be writing for the WWF.
Or Baywatch. Or somewhere.
ObPamelaAnderson: Did anyone else notice all the bruises on her arm during her hosting of the New Years' Day Baywatch Moronathon?
Please credit myself and Slashwrestling when posting this news elsewhere.
Also at Bizzarro World Royal Rumble Jamie Knoble wins it for an unprecedented 9th time. And goes on to Wrestlemania to wrestle Kaz Hayashi!
THAT IS AWESOME!
Yes THAT IS AWSOME! Too bad Kaz is going to once again hand Knoble his sorry ass! They didn't kick him out of the Jung Dragons (Running rough shod over the Bizzaro WWF like the NWO only wished they could!) for nothing!
As for Pamela: I saw those marks, but she's had them for a while, I think. I always thought it was an acne scar or something.
Yeah Tommy was busted for beating on her before. It was the reason for their break up. Well, that and the whole porno flick scandal probably. Of course who does she shack up with now? Kid Rock. Yeah, that'll last.
Never thought I'd be discussing Pamela Anderson on a wrestling board..oh well
You know what may happen? Jericho loses to the Rock (and maybe finally get one belt? I doubt it) and beats the crap out of another contestant of the RR and grabs his number. Have that happen during another match so no one is expecting it and run through the Rumble then when that number hits, it would shock the casual fans in attendence. Jericho comes out, lasts till the end and goes to No Way Out to beat the Rock!!..Nah, wont happen

I can agree with you somewhat on that. the only time Vince went with the mid-carders is when WCW signed away most of their upper-card wrestlers and were getting destroyed in the ratings. Austin, Rock and HHH were all WWF mid-carders at that time.
