Barbarian only returning class from Diablo 2 or 1.

Jay Wilson lead designer of Diablo 3 says "the only original class coming back is the Barbarian"   No Pally, No rogue, No amazion, and (the one that makes me say HUH the most) No Sorcerer ! 

I really don't understand this move but hey he did say if the fans want it then maybe in an expantion.

What class do you think would fit in a diablo world?

I would have to say some kind of Priest (could be the new sorcerer)
A Ranger (could be the new rouge/amazion)
A Blademaster, someone that use only swords no duel welding. kind of like a samurai
Or maybe they will make thier own Monk class and say "well it wasn't a blizzard original"

Crazy stuff, to think we will be getting 4 new classes. They really wanted to change it as much as Diablo 2 changed from 1 cause if you think about it the sorcerer was the only class that came back from 1 in 2.

Well I'm sure there will be similar classes, like hybrids or more complex versions of their former self.

Thats what I been thinking.  But there is still room to make brand new classes as well.

I am not worrying just really intrigued to see what they are making.
