Jaime Noble and the FBI in HCTP. They all were around when development was in the early stages of the game. The APA as well considering they returned around the time Batista and Orton debuted the year prior and they made it into SYM.
Hak in WCW Mayhem, he was one of the top guys for the new hardcore division WCW was starting in early 1999. Feuding with both Raven & Bam Bam Bigelow, like Raven he left WCW late that year, if Raven managed to sneak into the game I don't see why Hak couldn't make it in.

WWF War Zone had several wrestlers such as the Legion of Doom, Vader and Patriot who didn't make the cut. This game had a roster based on the 1997 season of WWF, hence the presence of Bret Hart, Ahmed Johnson and British Bulldog but the game wasn't released until 1998.

Crash Holly in the first WWF Smackdown! game. He only appears as part of Hardcore Holly's titantron, so maybe Crash was planned to be playable in that game but due to time constraints, he was added in Know Your Role.
Scott Taylor. (Strange they only included Brian Christopher)
I suppose those wrestlers you mentioned didn't make the cut for Attitude due to the fact that Owen Hart's death delayed the release of the N64 and PSX versions. Additionally, Steven Regal and Tiger Ali Singh were going to be in Attitude, but they were replaced by the Big Boss Man, Christian and The Godfather.

The 1989 arcade game WWF Superstars has The Brain Busters and Rick Rude removed from the roster. The Brain Busters and Rude were the Tag Team and Intercontinental champions respectively at the time this game was released.
The Nasty Boys were missing from the 1991 arcade game WWF WrestleFest. They were the Tag Team champions at the time this game was released and their omission is weird anyways.
