Vol'jin is just Thrall in troll form.
Saurfang is too old.
Sylvanas would send the rest of the Horde to their death and raise them as Forsaken.
Thrall, is Thrall...
Lor'themar Theron doesn't even want to be the leader of the Blood Elves as I recall, doubt he would want to become the Warchief for any other reason but to secure the safety of his people. I would still prefer him over any of the others though.
Rexxar is really not an option as he belongs in the wilderness, not in the civilization, and especially not as the Warchief of one.
In the end I'm afraid Blizzard is probably going with the utterly boring and obvious Vol'jin.

I create music (Metal) check it out! This time it's a cover of Overwatch's Victory theme -> https://soundcloud.com/ascenttozenit...-victory-theme
Also is true what you said about Lorthemar, but remenber that Lorthemar thought the option of becoming the Warchief himself, so i think is not imposible

Varian can't have actual input if it's expected that the new Warchief will be viewed as anything other than his creature.

As much as I would hate it, I do think it would be appropriate if Org was left a total ruin after all the smoke clears. The Horde capital city would then move to the Faction leaders home. That would make Baine or Vol'jin choices that might work if for no other reason then to keep the Horde capital on the same continent.
Or....we could claim Chen as our beer drinking warchief.
Vote for lor'themar or be mana bombed!
If there's one thing I've learnt from Legion and WoD it's that things can ALWAYS get worse. Patch 7.1 only helped to prove my point.
Currently playing: Enderal <-- Seriously, play this game. Probably the best thing 2016 has produced thus far.
