Behind-the-scenes update on potential WWE Royal Rumble 2023 location
The WWE Stadium Tour in 2023 appears to begin with the WWE Royal Rumble Premium live event.
The Royal Rumble was first hosted by WWE in 1988. It has since been a main attraction on the promotion’s schedule. It is headlined by some of the top stars in the business and is usually held at the end of January each year. This year, the show emanated from the Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis, Missouri.
According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select, the 2023 WWE Royal Rumble favorite is The Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. The company has hosted the Rumble event there twice before in 1997 and 2017. As always, nothing is official until WWE announces it, which likely won’t be for several months.
Sapp said New Orleans and Seattle have also expressed interest in hosting the event. But for now, it’s back to Texas.
WWE Royal Rumble kicks off WrestleMania
While WrestleMania is considered the company’s biggest event each year, the WWE Royal Rumble remains the favorite among many in the WWE Universe.
Many recognize the Rumble event as the official kickoff to the WrestleMania season, where the most important matches and feuds begin to line up for WWE’s most important show of the year.
Royal Rumble is best known for the titular men’s and women’s matches where thirty superstars challenge in an over-the-top battle royale for a chance to headline WrestleMania.
A show in a stadium can always energize any event. This creates a grand atmosphere and provides special viewing, especially when it comes to the “big five” events, which include the Royal Rumble, Money in the Bank, SummerSlam, Survivor Series and WrestleMania.
With WWE apparently wanting more stadium shows in 2023, it remains to be seen what other premium live events will get a stadium showcase in the coming years.
