Yeah, it really should just be Hogan, Hall, and Nash. If X-Pac is on the list, then there are a few others who should be going in with them as well. That being said, there's no reason not to just make it the original three, outside of doing X-Pac a favour.

Absolutely no reason it should be anybody other than the original 3. They were the nWo. I'd put Eric Bischoff in with them before Syxx. X-Pac got in with DX, which was more than enough for him.

I'm not opposed to X-Pac being included, but their reasoning was a little off. Bischoff should be involved somehow whether doing a speech or included with the group. I think big show was the fifth member so I wouldn't be opposed to him being in either.

Ted Dibiase was also bankrolling the group in kayfabe, so technically he could be inducted as well. I agree that Bischoff should be there.

I guess it all makes sense if you are looking at the WWE version of nWo but who knows

I think it's a good idea to have regular Bray go tonight vs the Miz instead of The Fiend smashing Bryan again. The monster push for the Fiend has turned an interesting character into a predictable one

As I've said before, Bray Wyatt's characters are great concepts, but lack compelling story arcs. This is something a bit different, appearing as himself rather than The Fiend, but it's still a bit convoluted overall.

I've been waiting for that episode to drop since I saw Tim was on Watch Along last year. Going to have to set aside some time to catch that!

Meanwhile, would it would surprise anyone if Brock somehow won the Rumble, eliminating all 29 other Superstars (or at the very least, setting a new record)?

Lol 29 eliminations would not surprise me. I actually hadn't thought of that until now. I thought there was a slight chance Cain or Roman or someone eliminates him at the end to set up a feud

Putting all paranoia aside, that's probably more likely. It's still going to make a lot of the roster look like dorks, but that's nothing new as far as WWE's booking is concerned. I just can't shake the feeling they might actually dare to go there.

With Brock as champ, the winner will most likely go for the Universal title at Mania (Which is still the case if Brock wins). I shudder at the thought of Brock as double champ.

With that being said, I'd like to see Nakamura or Cesaro win the rumble and title, but that's not happening so maybe they're going to feed us Roman again. I would also like to see Drew McIntyre win too

Honestly though, I don't think things are much better with The Fiend as the champ on Smackdown. I feel like it's going to be a shaky build to Wrestlemania this year. The Lana/Rusev/Lashley angle has gone on way too long as well, and Rusev keeps losing the matches, so what's the point and payoff?

The Rusev story has gone too long, but it was resuscitated by what most people found as a surprisingly good wedding. A lot of good reviews came from it while I found it slightly predictable (c'mon man, the giant cake!?) But it was entertaining and the Liv cameo was a surprise

Maybe they're going to stretch it out for a WrestleMania match if it gains enough of a following?

I'm not sure how I feel about Liv Morgan's involvement. On one hand, she's getting to do something on TV. On the other hand, it feels like a waste after those vignettes, a couple of which hinted at something more dark and sinister, rather than typical Heyman Sleaze™.

I was also hoping for something a bit more, but the surprise angle was interesting enough. I wish they had taken it further. Or maybe the feud will end up with Lana leaving Bobby to be with Liv and make a new tag team in the women's division and bobby teams up with Rusev lmao

I have been avoiding all major spoilers for the rumble so far although Edge rumors from months ago still seem to point to him being there.

I was looking at betting odds and some interesting names popped up like Tyso Fury who I think they may use for a Brock feud and Ronda Rousey who might make her return alongside her friend Shayna Bazsler. Would be cool for them to set up a 4 on 4 horsewomen match at Mania or even the ppv before it to hype a Mania main event (Rousey wins rumble to get revenge on Becky?)

How close is Caín Velasquez to being cleared? If he's good to go, I could see him entering and eliminating Brock at least.

I think he's healthy as he's had some time off. He wasn't healthy during his initial run

Wasn't he undergoing surgery? If so he might not be fully rehabbed yet.

So, I was actually pretty surprised that I enjoyed the men's rumble more than the women's. I thought our fears had come true when Brock dominated at the beginning like we thought he would. Skipped through most of that part. Was pleasantly surprised that he got eliminated. Nice to see Edge get the pyro. You could see him really protect his neck at one point I think on the Deep Six. Nice to see Drew McIntyre get the win like I was hoping but also the elimination on Brock and Corbin the two biggest heels.

And then the women's match we had the real Brock come in and dominate and win. Charlotte winning was a bit of a disappointment but not a surprise. Especially since there wasn't a whole lot of main roster talent there. Was cool to see Bianca get a nice run. Beth worked a long time lasting most of the match and working with a bad cut on the head. It seemed like the match was lacking in bigger stars, but it was cool to see some of the NXT women get some time in there.
