The Rumble match is arguably the most exciting bout of the year for devout WWE followers, part-time fans, tipsters or former viewers still engrossed by the magic of the contest.
While WWE appears to have done a fine job in preventing any certified favourites emerging ahead of the PPV, the Superstars who are hogging the limelight are largely past winners whose stars have previously shined brightly at this event.
One of WWE's key strengths is its ability to build new main event-calibre stars on a regular basis, and winning the Rumble match is a tried and tested method of elevating a Superstar toward a title shot at WrestleMania.
Here, I'll analyse the worst options to win the Rumble match at the US Airways Centre, be it due to their previous success in the match, or that victory in the bout would be coming too soon or too late in their WWE careers.
