I don't think that's actually a problem. Smash is full of characters without massive fan support movements. Joker is a great example. Piranha Plant is an even better one.
The difference is that Piranha Plant was planned for base roster, and Joker is the protagonist of an insanely popular and relevant JRPG that Sakurai was a huge personal fan of, to the point that the Ultimate UI was influenced by it.
Rayman doesn't have the relevance/Sakurai love boost that Joker had, or the quirky joke character boost Plant had.
All the less relevant/shilly picks for the base game had extremely vocal and consistent demand for a long time.
