WWE Royal Rumble 2019: Match Card, Date, And Location

By January 15, 2019 No Comments


WWE’s yearly event, the Royal Rumble, is almost here. It has one of the most interesting matches of the year, where 30 participants enter the ring, one by one, and have to eliminate each other until there is only one superstar left standing. The winner of the event gets to challenge their brand’s champion at Wrestlemania, so the stakes are high.

This year’s Royal Rumble is coming to PPV and the WWE Network live on Sunday, January 27 at 7 PM ET / 4 PM PT, with a Kickoff Show starting two hours prior. Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona will host the event, and you can still pick up tickets if you’re interested. Single tickets are going for as cheap as $36 as of this writing, but the prices will fluctuate as we get closer to the event.

While it’s still a couple weeks away, there are currently eight matches on the card, and there could be a few more added, two of which should be on the Kickoff Show. Brock Lesnar returns to hopefully lose the Universal Championship to Braun Strowman, so WWE fans can finally have a fighting champ that actually shows up weekly. And if you think I’m being a bit salty, talk to any WWE fan about the Universal Championship, and they’ll probably say the same thing.

However, there is plenty to be excited about for this year’s PPV. Aside from both the men’s and women’s rumble matches, which are the most fun thing WWE produces every year, Becky Lynch gets a rematch for the Smackdown Women’s Championship against Asuka. That should be a spectacular match, and on Raw, things have been heating up between Sasha Banks and Ronda Rousey, and fans seem pretty excited about the championship match.

Below, you’ll find the Royal Rumble match card and every confirmed entrant for both the men and women’s Royal Rumble matches.
