No, it is never too early to talk about the first pay-per-view of the 2013 wrestling year.
We all can smell what the WWE is cooking when it comes to the Royal Rumble and the potential (I say that because CM Punk is still on crutches and we have not seen The Rock lately) colossal event on the horizon.

Remember, the win last year by Sheamus led to an 18-second win for the Irishman and the World Title around his waist.
Who will win this year? It is anyone's guess. But with so many stars who could take a leap forward in 20313, there are plenty to choose from.
Here is a look at eight competitors who could be considered potential headliners to win the event.
