The Royal Rumble is the second biggest event of the WWE calendar and the biggest gimmick match of the whole year.
Thirty men, and sometimes women, compete every year for a chance to headline WrestleMania for a title match against the WWE or World champion.
The Rumble match itself is always very entertaining due to the fact that superstars who do not normally get to face each other can have a chance to duke it out, but it is also because WWE tries very hard at this event.
Winning the Rumble has elevated many great superstars over the years like Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Batista, Rey Mysterio, Steve Austin and many more.
The WWE roster is filled with superstars who are chomping at the bit to main-event WrestleMania, many of whom have never had the chance before.
This slideshow will look at seven superstars who are worthy of getting their first Royal Rumble win and going on to headline WrestleMania.
