WWE Royal Rumble season has begun, which means WrestleMania season has begun as well. The WrestleMania picture should slowly take form as the Royal Rumble field is set. As always, the Royal Rumble field presents an elite crop of wrestlers with a legitimate shot to win.
The rest of the field is filler, although some non-winners have been able to build on impressive Royal Rumble performances in losing efforts.
Candidates to win the Royal Rumble are likely to appear in world championship matches at WrestleMania and have consistently been booked near the top of the card.
