The WWE Royal Rumble arrives in San Antonio on Saturday, making it one of the most awaited days of the season for wrestling fans. The event contains the popular Royal Rumble contests for men and women and marks the beginning of the “WrestleMania Season.” The champions of the Royal Rumble contests will compete for a world title at WrestleMania.
The event will include two significant championship fights apart from the Rumble contests. Roman Reigns will defend his undefeated WWE worldwide championship against Kevin Owens, while Bianca Belair will protect her Raw women’s championship against Alexa Bliss.
WWE fans have marked January 28 highlighted on their calendars for months, as the Royal Rumble is scheduled to take place this weekend in Texas. This is one of the business’s most awaited events of the year, as it often puts up the central event scenario for WrestleMania. This year’s Showcase of the Immortals is incredibly massive, having already broken ticket revenue records earlier this month. With that in mind, the Royal Rumble will be packed with debuts, surprises, and returns.
The Royal Rumble begins at 8 p.m. ET and will be shown live on Peacock in the United States. Everyone outside the United States (excluding Australia) can watch the exclusive live show on the WWE Network. Foxtel in Australia will be broadcasting the game. Peacock Premium memberships start at $4.99 per month, while WWE Network access remains $9.99 per month.
Meanwhile, Foxtel will charge Australian subscribers AUD 10 per month. Live tickets for the event were available as of January 26 on WWE’s official website. The Royal Rumble is expected to be an exciting event that fans will not want to miss.
