In a perfect world, the 2013 Royal Rumble would give us a surprise or two. Maybe a new champion that hasn't been crowned before or someone from the back who comes out to the merriment of the fans.
It's not Christmas anymore, but we can wish and hope, right?
While you figure the winner of this year's event will have a tie-in to the WM 29 plan for mayhem, don't be shocked if there are a few changes with the script (something the WWE has come to be known for).
And if there is someone who actually captures the imagination of us all for three months. And while the list may be short of who could do that outside the usual suspects, there are a few who I think could surprise use all.
