Tonight's (Jan. 21, 2013) episode of Monday Night Raw from San Jose, California, the go home show to the Royal Rumble pay-per-view this coming Sunday night in Phoenix, featured a "Beat the Clock" challenge.

On the line? The right to pick whatever number the winning wrestler wants to enter the Rumble match at, be that number 1 or number 30.

The night started with Randy Orton taking over 11 minutes to defeat Antonio Cesaro. Dolph Ziggler set a new pace by taking Miz out in 10:56. The final match saw Sheamus take on Wade Barrett and while it was booked close, Sheamus was unable to defeat Barrett fast enough.

So it's Ziggler who gets to choose his spot. The kicker? Vickie Guerrero revealed that he won't get to choose any number he wants, he gets to choose between number one or number two.
