The 2023 WWE Royal Rumble comes live from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on January 28th.
Two huge title matches have been confirmed for the show while Bray Wyatt will also be making his long-awaited return to action. The event will also feature the traditional Royal Rumble matches.
In the men’s Rumble match, it has been confirmed that Cody Rhodes will be returning to action. The American Nightmare is one of the strong favourites to win the whole thing as he returns from a serious pectoral injury. The match will also feature the likes of Brock Lesnar, Gunther, Sheamus, and many more surprises.
In the women’s match, Rhea Ripley is one of the heavy favourites to go one better than when she was runner-up in 2021.
Roman Reigns is set to put his Undisputed WWE Universal Title on the line against Kevin Owens. While Owens is a huge underdog, there is wild speculation that the biggest story could come after the final bell. Despite reports that he won’t be in ring shape to face Reigns at WrestleMania, rumours persist that The Rock could make a special appearance to set up the match.
Bray Wyatt will be in action in his first televised match since WrestleMania 37 when he takes on LA Knight in the first-ever Pitch Black Match. The final match on the card will see Bianca Belair defend her Raw Women’s Title against Alexa Bliss.
