Will Dolph Ziggler be this year’s Royal Rumble marathon man?  Will the Three Man Band make it past the five-minute mark?  Will John Cena come through as the odds-on favorite to win his second Royal Rumble match? 

As the WWE has so fondly reminded its fanbase over the years, the Royal Rumble is but a numbers game.  Thirty superstars compete for the right to go to WrestleMania, but the only number that matters is one—the number of individuals who will win the Royal Rumble, barring a tie. 

Various Royal Rumble records have been in existence for years—some for more than a decade.  Yet with Ryback as a sexy pick to eliminate the most Royal Rumble contestants and Dolph Ziggler guaranteed to enter the Royal Rumble in a top-two slot, a pair of time-honored records could fall in 2013. 

So who will wind up in the final four?  Who will own the annual comedy spot?  Bleacher Report video has your answers.
