WWE Royal Rumble 2014: Most Likely Breakout Stars at Event
From WWE.com

The Royal Rumble accomplishes many tasks aside from crowning a new No. 1 contender for a world championship. Win or lose, stars are made, feuds are either started or furthered, and longtime wrestling fans usually get a little comfort food via surprise entries.

A staple of the Royal Rumble match in years past has been the breakout performance. The Rumble often serves as a live-action "coming soon" advertisement for stars on the rise.

Those fresh faces who either spend a large amount of time in the match or stockpile eliminations can create just as strong of a buzz as the eventual Royal Rumble winner himself. From time to time, the fresh face becomes the winner. 

In order to be eligible as a likely breakout candidate, one must have never won a Royal Rumble match and can never have been crowned a world champion in WWE. 

Breakout candidates will have built momentum leading into WWE's most important Battle Royal, either by big wins or an emphasis on their character during Raw and/or SmackDown.

With WWE figuring to have several up-and-coming wrestlers in this year's field, it is likely somebody from this list emerges as the winner of the 2014 Royal Rumble match.
