Kinda like going back and re-writing Oscar winners. If you could have the hand of God to choose a different winner for past rumble matches who would it be? It doesn't have to be someone who would be logical because of the booking going in. Think of any reason you like:mark:

89 - The Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase
90 - Macho King Randy Savage

91 - Jake Roberts
92 - Big Boss Man:mark:
93 - Earthquake
94 - Bam Bam Bigelow

95 - Adam Bomb
96 - Hunter Hearst Helmsley
97 - Vader
98 - Mankind

99 - Owen Hart
00 - D' Lo Brown
01 - Kane
02 - Jeff Hardy
02 - RVD
03 - Booker T
04 - Kurt Angle
05 - John Cena

06 - Shelton Benjamin
07 - MVP
08 - The Undertaker
09 - CM Punk
10 - Batista
11 - John Morrison
12 - Chris Jericho
13 - Dolph Ziggler
14 - Ryback
15 - Rusev

16 - Bray Wyatt
17 - The Undertaker
18 - Nia Jax (Women's) Goldust (Men's) :flip:

Starting only once they added the WrestleMania stipulation

93 - Mr. Perfect
94 - Bret solo instead of the double winners
95 - Really can't see anyone other than Shawn winning it, maybe Bret again
96 - Vader but still prefer Shawn here as well
97 - Undertaker since he ended up with the title shot anyway
98 - OWEN but they didn't wanna capitalize on the screwjob smh
99 - Austin
00 - Considering it ended up a 4-way they could have given it to Show as well, but Rock should still win this
01 - Angle but this should stay Austin
02 - Probably should stay HHH but PERFECT
03 - Booker but should still be Brock
04 - EDDIE!
05 - Cena
06 - Orton should have eliminated Mysterio for the uber heat and then Mysterio could have still worked his way into the three-way
07 - Shawn Michaels
08 - Nah gotta stay Cena for that return don't even wanna think of alternatives
09 - Probably Cena if not Orton
10 - SHAWN and have the match against Taker be for the belt which might be overkill since it's already streak vs career but fuck it
11 - Give that shit to Santino on the swerve
12 - Jericho
13 - Would have liked Cena winning the belt against Punk and Rock winning the Rumble but that rematch with the belt still should go on
14 - BRYAN
15 - I still say Reigns, fuck the haters
16 - Reigns but HHH winning was amazing so I say keep it
17 - BROCK
18 Mens - Reigns again tbh
18 Womens - Gotta stay Asuka IMO unless Rousey debuts in it instead

I almost went Perfect for 93. Only reason I didn't was because he had peaked and was suffering from a back injury. Also I prefer heel Perfect. Would have been good for him to have got a rumble win though. Considered him for 90 too.

Agreed on 94 but I guess it was sweet deal the story of Bret having to work twice at Mania. Still could have worked that in though.

I went Owen for 99 just because then he would have got one last big push before his sad passing.

I feel like 98 would be better for Owen bc he was over af after the screwjob before that burial fully started by DX
