Counting down from five to one, are next WWE superstar comes in at….
4. Alberto Del Rio
Alberto Del Rio has been on a down slide every sense he lost his world heavyweight title early in 2013 at Hell in a Cell pay-per-view and has since suffered a concussion. WWE officials are very high on the Mexican superstar and have given him several runs at the helm of WWE. He can hold his own both in the ring and on the microphone.
Del Rio is a top candidate for winning at Royal Rumble even if those hopes are slim, You look at WWE right now and they do not have a lot of top tier talent so that is why he is on my list. I’m not sure he will turn face again but he is a solid heel, he gets over well with the audience and that is what WWE is looking for in a star.
Alberto Del Rio has held the WWE and world heavyweight title twice each for a total of four. He has also won the Royal Rumble back in 2011 and went on to lose to then World Heavyweight champion Edge. After Edge had to retire due to injury he had a series of matches with Christian for the gold but ended up getting knocked out of the title picture.
Del Rio is back and has wrestled with Sin Cara since returning. Del Rio has all the accomplishments that you want someone who will be winning such an event.
Due to the his losses and no direction within his character. It leads me to believe Del Rio has the number four chance at winning this year’s Royal Rumble.
