With the Royal Rumble in the rear-view mirror and WrestleMania on the horizon, most of the WWE Universe has its sights set on Monday Night Raw, not on SmackDown. The majority fans are most interested in the battle between The Rock and CM Punk for the WWE championship.

There's another championship belt to think about. The World Heavyweight championship, currently held by Alberto Del Rio, will almost certainly be defended at WrestleMania 29.

The only question is, who will hold the belt by the time April rolls around?

The following slideshow power ranks the contenders for the World Heavyweight Championship.

This isn't a wish list, but a prediction of who the 10 most likely candidates are to take the WHC at least once in 2013.

In compiling the list, past history, current standing on the card and potential to be elevated were all taken into consideration. Wrestlers had to be currently active to make the list.

The slides are ranked in the order of most likely to least likely to win the World Heavyweight Championship in 2013.

Who will hold the big gold belt in 2013? Click on as we power rank the contenders.
