One of the most important times of the year is coming up as WWE's 2014 Royal Rumble pay-per-view is heading our way, and the Road to WrestleMania is within sight.
With each Royal Rumble victory, the entire landscape of WWE could change for years to come, so it isn't meant to be taken lightly, particularly when there is only one world champion to target.
More often than not, the winner of this match either further cements his legacy as a top star in the company or takes that final huge step forward to achieving that status for the first time.
Last year, John Cena became the fourth man ever to win more than one Royal Rumble match.
Will that happen again with a former winner outlasting the rest, or will a newcomer survive and get to challenge for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania XXX?
Now that TLC 2013 is done and over with, it's time to look forward and start trying to predict what will happen at the next pay-per-view.
So out of everyone in WWE at the moment, who are the five most likely candidates to win the Royal Rumble, based on the current storylines and where they appear to stand in terms of importance?
Let's take a look!
