#5. May win the Royal Rumble again: Charlotte Flair

Charlotte Flair is already the most decorated woman in WWE history. The Royal Rumble accolade was inevitable and she got it in 2020. She also became the first person to challenge for an NXT title at WrestleMania.

Given that she's always in a prime spot in WWE, another Royal Rumble victory wouldn't be surprising - especially if WWE wants her to be in a big-money match at WrestleMania sometime in the future.

#4. May never win it again: Rey Mysterio

Rey Mysterio had one of the most heartwarming Royal Rumble victories in history. It was only two months after Eddie Guerrero had passed away, and it turned into a catalyst for Rey Mysterio's first World Championship in WWE.

Entering at number two, he set the record for the longest appearance in a single Royal Rumble match at 1 hour, 2 minutes, and 12 seconds - beating Chris Benoit's record which was set two years earlier.

Rey Mysterio is in an entirely different stage of his career, and despite having quite some time left in his WWE contract, it's unlikely that he will win the Royal Rumble match again.
