WWE Royal Rumble 2023 is coming to kick off what should be a major build to WrestleMania season.
The over-the-top madness that is the WWE Royal Rumble is one of the most exciting spectacles in professional wrestling. This is due to the big surprises that can pop up in the showcase match and the fact that it has the potential to build a new star for the future. With Triple H in charge of talent and creative, this is his first vision of the Royal Rumble and sets the stage for an important run to WrestleMania that will define his initial run in his role.
The 2023 edition of the Royal Rumble is scheduled for Saturday, January 28 from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
With a world championship title shot on the line at WrestleMania, the rumble match has the potential to create a new star for the company. Fans and pundits have their favorites to win, ranging from Rhea Ripley to Cody Rhodes. Either way, this is a chance for WWE to build excitement for the product by picking the right individual for the victory. For the men, this could be the man to finally topple Roman Reigns. The women’s division needs a new star to stand across from Bianca Belair or Charlotte Flair and that could come on January 28.
The Royal Rumble will be available for viewing on the Peacock streaming platform.
