Tims Yokozuna/Kane/Big Show/Mark Henry/Vicera/The Blob have won a Royal Rumble?
Times a Shawn Michaels/Stone Cold/Bret Hart/Chris Benoit wont the Rumble?
7-8, Cant remember exactly.
The Rumble is for the light heavyweights traditionally. and Japan is stocked with them. Putting Muta in who has face value for his work in the States just makes sense.
Excellent point TM, and I'll add to the argument for Muta by mentioning that Muta has also won a main-event battle royal, that being the Battle Bowl at Starrcade 1992, which was a huge deal for WCW at the time and basically served as their own mini Rumble. This wasn't some midcard battle royal either, this was the main event and had been won the year before by Sting, the top face in the company. Says alot about Muta, and the respect that he garnered in a short time here in the United States.
