I might suggest that the very first Rumble (in 1988) would be a very good choice. Never on pay-per-view but taped for VHS release, it has some decent pacing and gets some unbelievably strong live crowd reactions.

2010 is great. Punks in ring promos after each elimination, Beth Phoenix eliminating Khali, HBK screwing over HHH as he was desperate to face the then champion Taker and his despair once thrown out, Miz/MVP carried on their feud in the match, Edge's shock return and tossing Jericho who had mocked his injury months before, the seeds for the Cena/Batista program being sown there and a winner we didn't even know was in the match. So many stories told.

2001 and 2003 are two of my absolute favorite rumbles. 2002 was awful after Taker beats the living hell out of Maven, it becomes a jobber fest until Stone Cold comes out and the ring never really fills up.
