The Royal Rumble is the WWE's annual tree of activities that each year spawns branches of storylines, feuds and upstarts.
This year will be no different, with the WWE Royal Rumble serving as a 30-man tool of storyline development.
The Royal Rumble watch list is a group of WWE superstars who figure to be highlighted in some fashion in the most important battle royal of the year. Some have potential to break long-standing records. Others could win it all. All of them should be watched.
