Coming from a player who has never touched an alliance toon above level 1 since i subbed, and been reliably playing horde since day 1; I can say I honestly have never been able to take the trolls seriously as a race (the racist Jar-Jar Binks of wow), and would seriously have to reconsider how seriously I take the horde with Vol'Jin as war chief. That said I hope what the OP suggests is true.
-- We'll Dance As The Palaces Burn --
"...we just know we do want to have the recognition from the Horde and Alliance that we have to depose Garrosh as the leader of the Horde and reinstate Thrall as Warchief...."

He would probably lose his axe, with an ally having to recover it, in the way and get near killed, as almost every time he leaves the hold.

I believe it is strongly hinted that Vol'jin will land the killing blow since when you start a new troll after a vision he says to Garrosh he will be the one that will pierce his heart and spit on his corpse.
He who sees his own doom can better avoid its path. He who sees the doom of others can deliver it.
It will be vol'jin. The recent scenario makes it obvious for me where he says he will be in the shadows where he will be more "usefull"...
Also, he is an all round cool guy. Both alliance and horde fanboys like him to a certain degree.
As the new warchief i'm sure it'll be thrall again, but i wouldnt be upset if it was Vol-jin, he doest fit the role well as a leader.
Did he ever do anything cool? Proudly standing at the gates of Undercity when Thrall and Sylvanas were doing all the job? Tapping the keg during Brewfest? Talking to Halduron and Vereesa at the gates of another city he didn't wish to enter? Making an excruciatine war effort to kill one troll (took him 5 years by the way)? Maybe getting assassinated makes him cool?
I never got the "coolness" of Vol'Jin. The way he speaks? The way he is a troll? The fact he is a friend of Thrall? Tell me what is freaking cool about him.
Voljin and Anduin and the guy from Silvermoon, thats the most obvious answer there is.
Or do you really think that a guy that doesn't show up since Wotlk will magically appear from nowhere, without any leads, and kill the main bad from the expansion?

I dont know, since Saurfang was still mentioned in Cataclysm -> Stonetalon Mountains quest where Garrosh says to Overlord Krom'gar the following dialogue in "To Be Horde" questline:
Garrosh Hellscream says: "I spent a very long time in Northrend, Krom'gar. I learned much about the Horde in that time."
Garrosh Hellscream says: "While there, a wise old war hero told me something that I would carry with me forever..."
Garrosh Hellscream says: "Honor," Krom'gar, "No matter how dire the battle... never forsake it."
Garrosh Hellscream says: "Overlord Krom'gar, you have disgraced the Horde."
That right there is Saurfang's words to Garrosh, I believe Blizz didnt forget about what Saurfang said to Garrosh in Wotlk, as it is said in Cataclysm. I wonder if the possibilty of seeing Varok Saurfang joining the Siege of Orgrimmar with some of the Horde Expedition maybe... Its just theory after all
Budd kills Garrosh and surprises everyone.
He becomes the new Alliance leader then.
That's a rather old boot you've dug up, OP, but I do agree on the person. I'd much rather it be Saurfang than that pansy troll or any other lore character.
Now you see it. Now you don't.
I think that this dialogue is way more probably to happen:
Garrosh Hellscream says: Don't talk back to me, troll. You know who was left in charge here. Haven't you stopped to ask yourself why Thrall chose me instead of you?
Vol'jin says: Dere be no question why, Garrosh. He gave ya tha title because ya be Grom's Son and because tha people be wantin' a war hero.
Vol'jin says: I tink ya be more like ya father den he thought, even without da demon blood.
Garrosh Hellscream says: You are lucky that I don't gut you right here, whelp. You are foolish to think you can speak to your Warchief in such ways.
Vol'jin says: Ya be no Warchief of mine. Ya not earned my respect. And I'll not be seein' tha Horde destroyed by ya foolish thirst for war.
Garrosh Hellscream says: And what exactly do you think that you're going to do about it? Your threats are hollow. Go slink away with the rest of your kind in the slums. I will endure your filth in my throne room no longer.
Vol'jin says: I know exactly what I'll be doin' about it, son of Hellscream. I'll watch and wait as ya people slowly become aware of ya ineptitude. I'll laugh as dey grow ta despise ya as I do.
Vol'jin says: And when tha time comes dat ya failure is complete and ya "power" is meaningless, I will be dere to end ya rule swiftly and silently.
Vol'jin says: Ya will spend ya reign glancin' over ya shoulda and fearin' tha shadows, for when tha time comes and ya blood be slowly drainin' out, ya will know exactly who fired da arrow dat pierced ya black heart.
Garrosh Hellscream says: You have sealed your fate, troll.
Garrosh Hellscream spits at Vol'jin's feet.
Vol'jin says: And you yours, "Warchief".
