Who has the best shot at walking away the victor?

With a new year right around the corner, the question that's on every WWE fan's mind this time of year is sure to be "who will win the Royal Rumble?" It's the single, most exciting match of the year and, unlike years past when the winner is usually quite predictable, the 2016 edition is a realistic possibility for several superstars to walk out victorious. Months in advance, fans try to accurately predict not only the winner of the Royal Rumble match itself, but the participants for the main event of WrestleMania.
