The 2014 WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view is, like its predecessors, mostly a one-match card in terms of what is most important, but that cannot literally be the case.
Albeit not that much, there is still some more time that needs to be filled with other matches to add to the card.
Because of time constraints, not every feud going on in WWE at the moment has a chance to make it onto the pay-per-view, and many of them will have to sit it out.
Either those feuds will take a backseat and play out only on television or they will have to find a way to be incorporated into the Royal Rumble match itself.
But one advantage for the little guys this year is that there is no mandatory World Heavyweight Championship title defense to take up one of the few spots that are left.
So with a limited amount of options and not that much time to dedicate to things other than the battle royal, which feuds should still be given some proper spotlight shined upon them and be added to the event's lineup?
