Agreed.  A few were on the cusp, but how many people on that list actually had a chance of winning (as compared to other years)?

And that Rumble was essentially a vehicle to further the McMahon-Austin storyline.

While this is true, that is why I disliked it so much.  I like the Rumble itself as an event.  I felt like this Rumble was completely hijacked for the Austin/McMahon storyline.  The Rumble is a once a year specialty match.  I felt like I got ripped off or something.
