Season 1 made it clear real quick that Wells was Thawne/RF

Season 2 however has kept things rather obfuscated, but as Earth 2 is opposites of Earth 1 in many ways, then why not the Earth 2 version of RF aka THE RIVAL, and why not have the big reveal about him late in the season unlike Season 1 that revealed RF pretty quick

I can see this, your theory is growing on me. Zoom definitely has strong similarities to Clarris' The Rival, and while my instinct is that the writers wouldn't use someone so obscure from the comics they have just revived the equally obscure menace of The Turtle.
The fact is, with last seasons twists with Harrison Wells/Eobard Thawne, Thawne's unexpected return this season, time-travel, dimension hopping... In this show anything goes. No theory is too far fetched and unlikely.
So you are right. actually makes perfect sense given this began as Jay Garrick's story, on Earth-2, and both had an obsessive fixation on speed and The Flash.
