Not too long after this Hogan started his fued with Andre for WM3. Imagine that today though, months of build up to a match that actually got you excited and anticipating what would happen. Orndorff was a serious threat to Hogan and him winning the belt wouldn't have been shocking, but obviously they had much bigger plans for Mania that year.

Hopefully it's a good one.

And with seven spots open I'm gonna call it now: returning will be Brock Lesnar, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Shelton Benjamin, Carlito, the New Age Outlaws and MVP.
The rumble match is always fun but when you already know the winner ahead of time it's not as exciting. This year it's so obvious that Cena is winning so he can take the title from the Rock at mania. No other outcome makes sense at all.

Shelton is coming back for sure. I read that he gave his notice to ROH and will be back. It would be cool to see Carlito and the NAO come back for a little while to. The midcard does need some credible guys to come back and help get the younger guys over a bit.

The only way I want MVP back is if the WWE gives him the main event push and world title run he should've rightfully had in his first time there. I really don't know how you fuck up a guy with that much star quality and main event potential. The guy just has "it" and the fact that Vince fucked that up somehow is one of the biggest mistakes he's made over the last 5 or 6 years.
