I was just thinking the same thing, possibly a rare chance for a new ride to fit better within the park's theming than current/old ride. DHS is now seemingly focusing more on immersive (and IP) worlds like GOTG and less on production of media like music and specifically Aerosmith. GOTG in DHS is far better fit than the same in Epcot and probably better than RRC in future DHS.Overlay Rock "N" Roller Coaster with GOTG. It's that simple.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't recall RRC getting an update in recent memory.
